Hope DUNbar

And Hope Dunbar, from little Utica, Nebraska, caught me off guard with some incredible language and truth telling, including the mystical, “We Want.” It’s these kind of surprises in the after-midnight hours when the endorphins of music ecstacy meet the endorphins of fatigue, that make Folk Alliance special.”

Today I launched my Kickstarter Campaign for my upcoming album, Three Black Crows. You'd think I'd know how to embed the link here, but attempts have been unsucessful. I'm asking alot, but I'd love it if you'd copy and paste this into your address bar to find out more. Love, Hope. 



January 2017

December 2016

Congratulations, Hope! 2nd place winner of the American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest for the January/February publication

for her song, "We Want."

It's the first day of December and the cold is setting in here on the plaines. Our neighbors decorated their house really nicely. Our house is not decorated. I quit my day job a week ago in an effort to give more of my attention to the real work at hand. I'd love to come play for you so contact me and we'll make it happen. For now it's all music all the time and I am looking forward to ringing in a new year with lots of new goals and plans.
