There was this Girl - Single

Lanterns of Hope

There was this Girl is the first single off of Upward Over.

"It's time to introduce you to the neo folk storytelling of Lanterns Of Hope. The single There was this girl swells and sways through it's emotional happenings and is surely something new and old fans of folk will enjoy." - BuzzMusic

"The reminiscences which Lanterns of Hope shares with the likes of Leonard Cohen and Elliot Smith amplifies the accessibility of There Was This Girl, yet, plenty of distinction can be found in the raw human emotion which has been poured into the single. Narratively compelling tracks such as There Was This Girl will always be timeless." - A&R Factory

Upward Over

Lanterns of Hope

Upward Over was recorded in Portland and is available exclusively on the main site.

"Lanterns Of Hope recently dropped a huge album and if you love neo-folk and indie rock with some emotion, this one is for you. The album is titled "Upward Over" is made up of a series of powerful and moving folk songs that get you thinking. Songs are descriptive and visually enticing to the imagination." - Phoenix Music

"Upward Over has a flow to it and one of the reasons I prefer to listen to an album from beginning to end. As an album unfolds I prefer an arc similar to a story where it takes you to different shades of emotion and varying degrees of energy. If you are looking for experience like that then you just found it." - Divide & Conquer Indie Music Reviews

Compass - EP

Lanterns of Hope

"The EP "Compass" by Lanterns of Hope is about our spiritual journey, in nautical analogy. Earth is temporary, and we are working toward a heavenly goal, using a compass that is not man-made. "St. Peter, he holds the key, for the cast aside and weary." He will be at the gate, welcoming those who have made the arduous journey. Joshua Hope's voice is a bit like Neil Young's, and he sings with conviction." - Laura Hall KWCW 90.5 FM

"Compass is the strongest EP I have heard yet from Lanterns of Hope. He seems to be defining his sound a little more and the songwriting seems to be at its best" -Divide and Conquer Indie Music Reviews
