An independent artist in her sage-season, Hope Newman Kemp is an earthy piano-driven songwriter, stage singer, and music maker.

Hope is releasing her first concept album, "Hoping For Real: Songs Inspired by The Velveteen Rabbit" (August 2018) as means to debut theatrical and thematic songwriting. The project is produced by Ben Hardesty (The Last Bison), and invitingly imprints his folkchestral design style in elegant complement to Hope's accessible vocal and piano delivery.
