Alaska born sing-songwriter Hope Griffin has a passion for musical storytelling. Best known for her angelic vocals, gut-wrenching ballads and string-filled accompaniments, this songstress will take you on a journey down roads both familiar and new. Hope moved to Asheville, NC after acquiring her bachelor’s degree in classical voice in 2007. Since her move to Asheville, she has found her own voice as a Folk/Americana artist, swiftly winning the hearts of any who dare to listen. She’s released an album every year since 2015, songs all highlighting her catchy beats, poignant imagery, and strong lyrical prowess. Switching from soulful ballads to high-energy blues with ease, Hope’s performance gives a little something for everybody. In 2016 & 2017, she consecutively snagged the “Best Singer-songwriter” and “Best Acoustic Folk Band” titles, putting her at the top of her league in her region. Now days she can be seen touring the US with her dynamic trio, comprised of NJ-born cellist Jamie Leigh Bennett and progressive rock artist and lead guitarist Andrew Thelston. Her free spirited personality and ability to tell beautiful stories through song make her a true force to be reckoned with – and a hard excuse to miss.
