Beer & Pie
Despite her friendly and upbeat personality, Hope Roth writes songs that are both deliciously melancholy and deeply personal. The central theme tends to be that of loneliness and heartbreak, with words and melodies that are all at once funny and playful yet dark and complex. More often than not, she is chortling in the face of despair. Her songs aim to capture a moment or a mood, to take something difficult or painful and turn it into something beautiful. More often than not, you will find yourself humming her melodies long after you have turned your stereo off. Her songs might get stuck in your head, but you will be glad to have them there.
