A B O U T
J Hope is a multi-genre violinist and singer-songwriter from East London. At the age of 5, he began fostering his love for music and cultivating his craft by classically training as a violinist. He trained at Newham Academy, CYM and has been in orchestras including LSSO and Chineke. Classical music was the foundation, but he yearned for a deeper connection with the music he was playing. Since 2015 he has widened the spectrum of his craft to genres closer to home - paving the way for solo performances across the UK at some of the most prestigious venues, as well as European tours for Damien Escobar, Ebony Bones, and Steven Bartlett’s ‘Diary of a CEO Live’ sold out tour.
As a recording artist, J Hope’s ‘Cover Tape’ series has been a staple in his musical identity, but over recent years, J Hope has continued to explore the possibilities of his artistry, combining his vocals with the silky tones of his violin. Somewhere between his well-loved violin covers, R&B vocals and captivating performance; you'll be bound by the soul, emotion and one of a kind vibe that J Hope brings.
Having recently featured on the second season of Netflix’s period drama ‘Bridgerton’ and in music videos with the likes of Clean Bandit, NSG and Ray Blk, J Hope undoubtedly projects a widescreen vision of what it means to be an artist with a classical instrument.
"Im in love with this. J Hope you gave this song a new life. Now I wish there was a violin on the actual song."
