The Hope Movement
Our journey through life takes us down many roads. The question of which road to choose seems to always be the hardest.
One turn and everything changes. That is how it all started for us.
Though each of us are different in our own way, we came together with a unified goal to change the foundation set in this day and age to let people know that there is hope in this world.
We cant do it alone though. A movement works best when surrounded by individuals joining together and fighting for the things that mean something to them.
So we ask you now, will you join us? After all music is nothing without the people who listen to it.
You are the hope. I am the hope. Together we are The Hope Movement.
What started out as a modest project has grown into something spectacular, reaching across state lines, across the internet and into the hearts of people world-wide. The Hope Movement (THM) creates an experience that shows the awesome power of music and the effect it can have on human emotions. After posting some of our music on MySpace, e-mails, text messages, Tweets, and facebook posts have started coming in on a regular basis, with people telling us that a song has helped them through trying times, or gotten them through lonely nights, says Eric Brown, lead guitar and singer. Its truly humbling to be part of something like this added John Plank, guitar and vocals. The Hope Movement (THM) began in May 2008 when guitarist and singer Eric Brown started writing simple songs with the goal of making people feel better about life and helping them through the rough times. Were just four guys from Montana sharing our hopes, our dreams, and letting people know that theres real hope in this world and that hope is eternal, added Brown Since THMs beginning, Brown has enlisted the help of close friends in music to help with the cause. Combined, the band has been playing music for the better part of a century. THM is one of the hardest working bands out there, recording their debut album, Signals Through Your Stereo in just 9 days, from start to finish with famed producer, Aaron Hougland, (Fall Out Boy, AFI). The Hope Movement has shared the stage with such acts as Sanctus Real, Decyfer Down, and KJ-52.
As often as possible! anywhere we can. We live to play live, we feel like something special happens when we play the song "lights" live its an incredibly emotional experience. Another special moment was when we traveled to a small town in idaho and everyone knew our songs when we got there, it was the most incredible experience to hear someone singing our words back to us.
I think something thats special about us is that we all draw from such different influences, and come together to create something with those.
