'Whiskey Mornings' will be released this Friday, June 10. See Dave Hope live at the Doolin Folk Festival on the same day.
County Clare's David Hope will release a new track 'Whiskey Mornings' this Friday. The folk single is taken from his forthcoming new album And the Sea.
Also arriving this Friday is the Doolin Folk Festival where Hope will be among the night's performers. He will join headliners Damien Dempsey, Mary Black, and Ye Vagabond for the West Clare festival.
While he has undoubtedly drawn influence from blues and American folk music, his sensibilities, wit, and wistful melancholy are unmistakably rooted in the West of Ireland. His music can be compared to contemporaries such as Mick Flannery and Declan O'Rourke.
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. His songs are strong and have a lived-in, authentic, almost sepia-toned feel.
David has previously received support from RTE with the inclusion of his track ‘Christmas Day’ in the European Broadcasting Union Christmas Music Project to be featured on playlists across all member states.
His latest single 'Moon and Back' was released in March, listen now.
