Album Notes
Hope Alane sings beautiful melodies that are accentuated by these mesmerizing pop-rock soundscapes.

...a little like opening an artist's closet and digging down into the bottom stuff. Hope Alane's vocals are bright and lilting, and producer john paints with a palette of atmospheric guitars, human-infused drum machines, tack piano, analog synths and the like that embrace the singer and her songs in a way that makes this release one of those rare ear gems you'll keep. Like a box full of photographs or something. This is very highly recommended.

Hope Alane's disc succeeds on account of its unconventional experimentation. Be it the layered vocals of pretty "Pacific Grove" or the microtonal shifts in the solo of "Brave," it's clear Hope Alane isn't afraid to try new things out.

Instead of trying to sound like Kate Bush or look and dance like Britney Spears, Hope Alane creates music that is anything but obvious...and she does not follow musical trends. "Old Old Friends" instantly sets the stage for Pink Sky Blue...an album that truly does not sound like other artists'. Hope Alane's songs are melodic and thoughtful...and feature strangely abstract arrangements. Her voice is subdued and the overall tone is both polished and progressive. Wonderfully inventive tunes include "Earth's Full," "Holding Hands," "Chemistry," and "Against the Sky." The cover graphics (courtesy of Star Nigro) are absolutely beautiful. Intensely satisfying.

Admirable for its fearlessness. Hope Alane is part folk singer, part abstract expressionist, and certain songs will have you reaching for the repeat button.

You will find a vast presence behind shimmering undulation and soft caress.
Pink Sky Blue seems at first to be a background for thought, but turn up the volume. Listen. Taste the lyrics. You find a vast presence behind shimmering undulation and soft caress. A surprisingly tough tone emerges
and I won't say "haunts" you. I will say I find myself singing the melodies daily and sleeping below this sonorous sky by night.


Hope's music makes my day better
I know Hope personally, so I can't say that this review is objective, but I do love her music. She writes wonderful lyrics, and her vocals do them justice. She's a great person, too! Best of luck with this album, Hope, and here's to many more!
