“Fight A New Day” was launched alongside a dream performance at The Fugard Theatre. After having secured a full endorsement from world-renowned Japanese piano masters, Kawai, joining the ranks of artists such as One Republic and Muse’s Matthew Bellamy, Hope returned to the recording studio in 2011 to record the much-anticipated follow-up to her debut album and independently released “Fight A New Day” worldwide on 31 October to critical acclaim. Lyrically focussed and piano-based, her music falls within the vocal/singer-songwriter genres, with some elements of pop rock captured more evidently on this record. In keeping with the style and honesty of her first album, Hope delivers a slightly more significant, more driving and upbeat sound.
