A warm North Carolina welcome! I am glad you are here.
Three decades ago I traded the start of a music making career for marriage and homeschooling kids. Today the kids are grown, the marriage sagely seasoned, and so here I am.
I am a Christian psalmist, but also a soul rocker, also a Big Band singer- and just love all that "Earthy Gospel" stuff.
But right now, I’m telling stories. The ones worth keeping, and telling over again. Like The Velveteen Rabbit—it may be a children’s book but it sure is a grown up story. So I wrote some songs for it.
It’s called, “Hoping For Real; songs inspired by The Velveteen Rabbit” The band comes along for a Musical Reading of the book, and we think it’s a splendid adventure.
Hope Kemp Music exists to be a place to make something that doesn't add to the noise and helps settle the soul, even if the only soul paying attention is my own.
So, If you are here to give a listen, thank you! I believe we have things to say to each other- I would love to hear from you too.
Hope lives in North Carolina and is married to Mark, a local dentist. She is the mother of four children, two daughters-in-love, and four perfect grandchildren (and two more on the way!)
