HEAVY HOPE  


Producer and singer-songwriter, HEAVY HOPE, merges the genres of Alternative Indie and R&B, whilst touching on Lo-fi and accents of Pop. Her two-faced narratives quickly turn from the spiritual to the angry. The somber and blasé sadness in pining for someone then flips to the opposite end of the spectrum, where hating men for not having enough money is thrown to the forefront. HEAVY HOPE entices you by providing the calm before her storm. Songwriting and making music in the comfort of her bedroom from the age of 14 – all of Hope’s projects are produced, arranged, engineered, written, and performed by her. She also directs, produces, and edits her visuals, consistently bringing her multi-media passions together.

BAD WILLOW


Listening to Bad Willow is like taking a day trip to an amusement park. Every song is a different ride and you never know where it’s going to go. Their music is mainly a mix of Rock, Funk, Punk, Grunge and Pop. Their lyrics take a lot of inspiration form Pop culture/literature with references to Alice in Wonderland, Frankenstein and more. This creates a whimsical dark fairy-tale vibe. InDMusic- “For fans of alternative rock with a twist, Bad Willow is a must listen. With their unique sound and captivating compositions, they are sure to leave a lasting impression on listeners everywhere.” FFO- RHCP, Kate Bush, Heart, Mother Mother and all that good stuff.
