American Hope performs “MY SONG” live!
HOPE … A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. To aspire. To wish. To dream. To plan with anticipation. We could all use a little hope.
Jameson, Jadyn, and Kenyon would tell you that hope comes naturally for them as three-of-the-five children born to Quayla and Jeff Hope. This is a family affair that has been woven together since the boys were 5, 6, and 7 years old.
Growing up under the rich musical heritage of their superstar cousin, Randy Owen (the highly esteemed lead singer of the legendary country group Alabama), American Hope has watched the world of music from the inside-out. Their tight-knit familial harmonies are reminiscent of the Fort Payne heroes, with a modern-day spin thrown in from current country music influences such as the Zac Brown Band and Florida Georgia Line. The end result is a fresh poppin’ southern rockin’ thumbprint all their own.
The boys are all avid instrumentalists and songwriters who are influenced by the music of their time and they bring their own brand of storytelling to the songwriting table. And it doesn’t stop there. Over the past 9 years, American Hope has performed on stages across the southeastern states, and further to Texas, and Ohio. From sharing the stage with Randy Owen at his popular “Fandemonium” events to the main stage at the historic Atlanta Dogwood Festival, Jameson, Jadyn and Kenyon have continued to hone their teenage chops into becoming one of the tightest and most professional bands to take a stage anywhere.
Seeking to take their craft to the next level, American Hope began working with Grammy nominated producer and renowned vocal coach, “Mama” Jan Smith in her Atlanta studio. Most noted for her work with Justin Bieber, The Band Perry, Usher, and Shania Twain, Smith has taken the boys under her development and most recently produced the band’s newest single, “Like It Like That!” The new single marks a passage for the burgeoning stars and is due to be released in March of 2019.
