ABOUT ME

Frances Hope is a singer-songwriter, old soul, performer, poet, multi-instrumentalist and alternative pop artist from Victoria, BC. Her music is inspired by early Joni Mitchell, Don McLean, Gordon Lightfoot, Taylor Swift, Lana Del Ray, Florence and the Machine, Fleurie, Birdy, and Brandi Carlile. She is an advocate for mental health, as her struggles with mental health led her to begin songwriting to process and heal her own wounds. Little did she know, that her words would touch others and shine a light on universal themes of vulnerability, mental health and healing, and have become her raison d'être. She is an international performing artist and is eager for her music to reach as many countries as possible and perform all over the world. 

Her budding music career pushed off when she was a contestant on Season 8 of a Canadian singing competition called Sing For the Shot: Remastered, and won a Battle of the Bands competition to take main stage at the Dragon Boat Festival in Victoria in 2021. She then made her debut at Hermann’s Jazz Club, local restaurants, tap houses, bars, cafes, and various radio stations. She has released three EP albums, four singles, and is currently releasing working on a fourth EP simultaneously. She received second place in a global songwriting competition out of Nashville, TN, and has been teaching songwriting theory and technique and songwriting through trauma for a couple of years and is launching various songwriting workshops in the future.

 

Her music is an eclectic combination of sweetness and grit, and her sound has been characterized as "edgy ethereal" and “intimate and touching with subtle and emotional insight.” She has been featured in some of the best Canadian blogs, magazines, and news outlets, such as Tinnitist, Canadian Beats, Cashbox Canada, and has been featured in Record World International, the second oldest music media outlet in the States. "A poet, lyricist, instrumentalist, and vocalist, she has defined her place in the musical landscape, bringing an edge of grit to vulnerability, and remaining wholly authentic." - Tinnitist 

She is presently teaching a virtual songwriting class for youth and adults dealing with trauma and teaching music, vocals, guitar, ukulele and songwriting at Blackbird School, as she continues to work on projects and collaborations. You can find her music on all streaming platforms.
