Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Hope Griffin was literally born into music. Surrounded by a musical family, she began singing and performing when she was very young. Hope first got turned onto the idea of writing her own music when she received a guitar at age 17. She attended Carson-Newman University and went on to receive a Bachelors degree in classical voice. It was there that her true flair for songwriting developed. Hope’s drive to perform her original works was launched after winning a songwriters contest in college in 2007. She eventually moved to Asheville, North Carolina where she began introducing her angelic vocals and folky lyrics into the music scene.

  1. Yes, I do know of your musical background. Your dad sent me your website link and we became friends at FBC in Fernandina Beach. You folks had just left Alaska and brought your musical talents to Florida.You have a very fine voice and a unique style. I caught your webcast live I think in December. Go for it!! I think you have a great chance.

  2. I caught the first few songs in Crumpler the other night but went to find my twelve year old in the lightning storm and missed the rest of the night.
    You sounded good and will be watching to see if you head out towards Chapel Hill but then again a trip to Asheville in the bus is always on the menu.

    It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.

  3. I just wanted to thank you for coming to The Cranberry Thistle in Jonesborough, TN. It was pleasant for me to hear a young performer with such musical talent. I can’t wait till your new EP comes out…….btw I was the employee that you gave a “shout-out” to for siniging every song right along with you…haha…..Thanks again I had a great day at work because of you!! Best of luck 🙂

  4. Wow soapy, your stuff is awesome. Can’t wait for your ep to release. I still have a picture of me and you at your house in Tennessee/Florida (can’t remember which) where you are playing my guitar. You have come a long way!

  5. I had the pleasure of listening to Hope’s performance at the Singer/Son Writer competetion in Black Mountain where I was a guest judge. Hope was so amazing and won 1st place in the competetion. It is easy to see the the level of respect her fellow artist have for her unique talent and angelic voice. Hope is an amazing talent… If you’re in town or nearby, do yourself a favor, find Hope’s next performance.

  7. Paula and I were privileged to hear the two of you at Packs Tavern on 1/7/16. What wonderful music and what a great vocal range. Hallelujah indeed!

  8. Hope,
    I watched your video of your visit to 98.1 The River tonight. Enjoyed your performance and wanted to pass this along. Obviously you are very talented and if you are in the Hoosier State my better half and I would like to see you perform.

    Best Wishes!
