A-21 Benefit Concert Report & Artist of the Month!

Filed under: Shows,Updates — Hope on September 27, 2011 @ 4:57 pm

Hello beautifuls!

The September 19th Benefit Concert was an incredible success! About 50 people showed up in support of the cause to watch me and 3 other singer songwriters rock our jams. Elana Brody opened up the show wailing out some meaty tunes while pounding the ivory keys. She was followed by the beautiful Trinidad native, Annya Li, who graced us with lovely acoustic melodies as well as a wicked Caribbean style rap. Then I along with my sister, Faith Gilmore, sang our songs for the remainder of the benefit. It was awesome to be able to back one another up with sisterly harmonies. Faith’s vivacious performance included songs from her latest album, Bold as Lions, and I sang about 7 of my own tunes, one of them being a newbie entitled “Traffic”, based on the issue at hand. Thanks to David Glickstein (guitar), Jason Arce (guitar), Johnny Wolf (cajon) and their hard work in playing both of our tunes the set went smoothly.

It was evident that the room was filled with a incredible energy and everyone seemed to have an enjoyable evening. Much thanks to the generous donations of the guests in attendance, a $100 donation from The Red Lion, and A-21 merchandise that was sold, together we raised nearly $600. I am so blessed to have had the help of everyone that made the idea of this show a reality, and now because of it women and men who have been trafficked will receive much needed aid and more people are aware. Approximately 27 million people are trafficked in order to generate $40 billion a year. I hope to continue raising  awareness of this terrible crime and ask that you take the time to see what you can do in your own community to bring about recognition of the harsh reality of what some people will do to make a dollar.

Also I am currently NYC Tastemakers’ Artist of the Month! Go here to see!

Thanks so much for your support!

Love

-Hope

Haught Summer!

Filed under: Shows,Updates — Hope on July 28, 2011 @ 7:43 pm

My these hot summer days are slipping away, time is flying. I am currently searching for a generous venue willing to host a benefit show. Anyone want to help? There will be at least 4 lovely female performers involved.

Better late than NEVUH!

Happy June!

The weather today (in New York that is) is delightful, gorgeous, splendid, amazing!

We just wrapped up a great show at the National Underground last Thursday night. We implemented some new sounds via keyboard and performed our new song, Strangers. We will have some video footage in the next month or so. It was crazy hot on stage, but we made it work. Thanks so much to those who came out!

Here’s a hella cool vid my friend Hank Chen created as part of his MAY-AWAY give-away for the month of May. Check out the interview. And if you have a chance check out some of his others vids, he’s one funny guy. ;)

 

 

Album on itunes and cdbaby BABY!

Filed under: Music Genres,Updates — Hope on April 10, 2011 @ 3:27 pm

Hello beautifuls,

My long awaited album, Waking Up the Ruins, is now available on itunes and cdbaby ! It’s $9.99 on itunes and $7.99 on cdbaby, of course one can also choose to download individual tracks. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 3 years since we recorded the album. I am currently in the studio working on my next one, which shouldn’t take as long as this one, but all in due time. ;) As always thanks for listening!

Update 3-27-11

Filed under: Lyrics,Updates — Hope on March 27, 2011 @ 10:54 pm

Hello there!

A lot is going on as of late. The guys and I have been gigging quite frequently. We just had 3 shows in March! We’ve also been writing a lot of new tunes that we are all pretty stoked about. And if you missed out on the shows, don’t worry I’ve spent hours editing the videos and uploading them onto youtube. ;) Here’s a link to one of our newest songs, Games, from our recent performance at Best Buy in Chelsea, NYC. Also, I’ve been working on getting my first album, Waking Up the Ruins, on itunes and CDBaby for download. I’ll blast the internet when it’s available. Until then if you are interested in seeing the lyrics and album credits for the album you can simply click on the Album tab of this website and find that each song title has a link to the lyrics.

Cheerio!

Friday, the 25th, Best Buy!

Lovers, parents, colleagues, friends

enjoy thyself and get free hugs

I promise this you won’t regret

and wear your green, don’t forget!

 

Caffe Vivaldi- TONIGHT!

32 Jones St

Opening is the very talented Brandon Harris, so don’t be late!
