Hope from the Forgotten Woods

by Amanda Rogers

A 16 track concept album that was conceived of 3 years ago, and while these songs sat and simmered in Amanda's heart and mind, the story began to unfold... a dark, intimate, and catchy soundscape supporting the confessions of a would-be serial killer.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Amanda Rogers - Hope From the Forgotten Woods (April 27th, 2012 - D.I.T. Records / Make My Day Records)


"To Hope is to fear", so goes an ancient chinese proverb, and like the yin and yang, and all things of light and goodness in need of darkness to be complete, this could not be more accurate when speaking of Hope From The Forgotten Woods, Amanda Rogers 7th Album release due out April 27th on Make My Day Records in Europe and Do It Together Records in the U.S. Amanda's songs have always held a filmic quality to them like imagery and score moving along the plot to a silent film, so it comes as no surprise that she would eventually make a concept album, like the musical equivalent to a risque crime drama film of the 1930's. Hope From The Forgotten Woods is Ms. Rogers most intimate and revealing album to date, full of honest self-observation. Digging deep to the core of a single emotion felt by the tragedy and despair brought on by the cruelty of others and fully realizing the fantasy of the "what if", Amanda conceptually fulfills the urges of her true hearts' desire. Like Satisfying an itch, Ms. Rogers lets her mind slip to the dark side to explore a feeling so deeply that she was able to fabricate such circumstances of emotional truth that you could never believe it was partially rooted in pure fiction.
Hope… is a 16 track album that was conceived of and written 3 years ago, during which time Amanda explored other musical ventures, and while these songs sat and simmered in her heart and mind, the story began to unfold - revealing more to Ms. Rogers about herself than she ever expected. Amanda is always sure to let the creative process happen to her rather than to make it happen, and so once this story unravelled, she spent night and day alone in the studio and recorded every spark just as it flowed into her, creating a dark and intimate soundscape that supports the confessions of a would-be serial killer full of pain, passion, vengeance, and liberation.
Can you dream up an alternative ending to the story to help mend your broken soul and seek revenge on a wicked world without leaving the confines of your mind?
Well, yes, with songs like "Get Your Heart", and "Ms. X" , Amanda's Hope From The Forgotten Woods has done just that.

This Record is dedicated to the many people who have ever suffered repeated violence from a spouse or partner and those affected by domestic and sexual violence. A portion of proceeds from this album's sales will benefit Vera House, Inc., Syracuse, NY, for their mission to end such violence and to assist those made victims. Writing these songs helped me to mend my broken spirit and recording them has healed my wounds. I hope this album can do the same for others.
