What does the dempsey hope project mean to you?
It’s special to me because it’s a culmination of the last year of my life. I love each song on the project because I feel like they give you a metaphorical glimpse into my life. This past year has been difficult for a lot of people in the world and in these times of uncertainty I’ve grown so much and really feel like it shows on “the dempsey hope project.” I just want it to inspire people and make them feel good. My favorite thing in the world is to share new music with my fans!
In what ways did you truly connect with this project? How did it help you?
Each song on this project helped me form my sound and establish myself in the industry, they’re so different and really show how I’ve grown over this past year.
If you could go back to the beginning of its creation, what advice would you give yourself?
I would say stay the course. I wouldn’t want to do anything differently. I’m so happy with how this project turned out and i believe everything happens the way it does for a reason.
What is its purpose?
To introduce myself to the world. 🙂
As an artist, what is your favorite part about creating music/writing lyrics?
The genuine feeling of happiness that it brings me to put my thoughts onto paper is an unmatched feeling. I know it sounds corny, but making and creating music is what really feeds my soul, I’ve become obsessed with it.
What brings you hope?
The little things are what gives me hope. I’m a simple guy, accomplishing things daily gives me hope, being productive and feeling happy and sharing that gives me hope.
Tell us more about you.
I don’t know where to start, I’m very passionate about my intentions I like to think. In my music and in everything that I do. I was raised to really think about what you’re saying, doing, and even seeing. Therefore I also like to think I’m a quick learner because I’m always observing and paying attention to what’s going on around me.
As a child, what did you listen to?
Hard to answer this question! I was listening to anything and everything that was played to me. James Brown to Al Green to The Beatles to Toots & The Maytals to E-40 to Ludacris, just to name a few. I grew up with a very diverse taste in music thanks to my family!
Who was an important mentor in your life?
My big brother Sullivan was my mentor and idol growing up and always instilled a sense of independence in me. That helped me to grow up a lot on my own through high school.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself wherever this life takes me, I don’t speculate too much on the future, I just see where I’m at now and if I’m happy I try to keep that same energy. Making music with my beautiful girl and my puppy, maybe a couple more pups.
