Hope Darling Discusses New Album and Themselves!

Melodic rock n' roll band HOPE DARLING have a new album out soon, with more music in-store as well. The band discusses themselves, music, and what's planned for them next.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Hope Darling was formed from a group of friends looking for a musical outlet from the routine of our lives, eventually writing and creating music to satisfy our own musical taste and ears.  The music eventually made its way to more listeners and kind of took off from there.  Next thing we know we are on local radio, offered performance slots locally and nationally, and eventually getting a call from Spike Lee’s production company wanting to place one of our songs on his Netflix show.

Hope Darling joins together the talents of Gabriel Sanchez lead singer and primary song writer, Jason Donadio on lead guitar and vocals, Jeff Durso on the drums, Frank Danceyon rhythm guitar and vocals, and finally Richard Gomez on bass guitar and vocals.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?  

Hope Darling is more than just a unique name, Hope Darling was a friend, a sister a daughter, and a music lover.  She unfortunately passed away unexpectedly many years ago 

When Gabriel had the opportunity to form this band he thought the name was so unique  he contacted Hope Darling’s  family to get her blessing and that’s when Hope Darling the name became a band. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?  

We are based out of the Tampa Bay/Clearwater area in Florida. There are quite a few talented bands and artists here in our area. Just look at any venue here and you will find incredible talent performing on any given night

4. How would you describe your style?  

Melodic, anthemic, emotional charged rock and roll.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works? 

We are about to release a new 9 song album.  Its 3 years of songwriting, recording and arranging.  Filled with melody, lyrical storytelling, emotion, and rock fused instrumentation. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?   

Besides finishing the new album I mentioned we are always fine tuning our current music and in the process of writing new music for another album.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?  

We are playing out mainly local shows, but in the past year have been fortunate to be able to play nationally.  We are always on the look out for performance opportunities anywhere and everywhere.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?  

To play bigger stages, to play for bigger audiences, to get our music to the ears of the masses and make Hope Darling a household name.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff? 

Our music is found on all streaming outlets, and even on Touchtunes Jukeboxes found in over 65, 000 locations in the United States and Europe. 

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Each member of this band has a different take on what we expect our listeners to take from our music.  If could be the soulful melodies, the cinematic and anthemic vibe, our arena rock sound, the storytelling lyrics, and the imagery of each song are just a few.  I would say we would agree that after listening to our music for the first time we want them asking for more Hope Darling.
