J Hope is an acoustic and electric violinist from East London. He has been classically trained from age 5, but since achieving a distinction in his Grade 8, his live performances have spanned over a wider spectrum of music from Hip Hop and R&B, to Afrobeats, Reggae, Pop, and Bollywood. His recent love for more contemporary playing and improvisation has taken him to solo performances at club nights, award shows, and destination weddings. In July 2019, he featured in Ray Blk's music video for 'Paradise', toured with Ebony Bones on her 'Nephilim' European Tour, and featured on the award-winning podcast 'This Is Spoke'. He also recently opened up for Damien Escobar's 'Elements of Love' tour at Jazz Café.
J released his second studio project in September. Following up from 'The Cover Tape - Vol 1.', where he pays homage to the artists and genres that inspire him, he released 'Off The Score', his self-produced debut EP. He now aims to project a widescreen vision of what it means to be a musician with a classical instrument.
He currently performs in London, across the UK, and internationally with his acoustic and 5 string electric violin,
and is available to hire for recording sessions, corporate events, music videos, live gigs, club nights, and weddings.
