David Hope

Somewhere over the years, we became aware of David Hope, an Irish songwriter with a variety of projects, including ones with his band, the Henchmen.

From his bio:

‘Let Her Go’ was shot on location in Hope’s native county, Co. Clare and was produced by up and coming Clare videographer, Steve Hall Video.

‘Let Her Go’ is the third music video taken from Hope’s highly successful second studio album ‘Scarecrow’, which was released in February of this year to rave reviews – with the album reaching No. 3 in the Singer / Songwriter Album Chart on iTunes.

“….With a rough-hewn voice somewhere between that of Tom Waits and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy (with a touch of Springsteen), Hope combines elements of folk, country, blues and soul on his second album…his songs are strong and have alived-in, authentic, almost sepia-toned feel…are on a par with anything out of the American heartland.”
