Carswell & Hope All

Lawrence, KS | Rock

From Lawrence, Kansas by way of Ireland, Carwesll & Hope bring vintage rock sounds and sensibilities together with big harmonies, carefully crafted textures and inventive songwriting.

Carswell & Hope were formed in 2012 when Irishman Nick Carswell arrived in Lawrence, Kansas looking to start a band. He found Jason Slate (drums), Austin Quick (bass/keys) and Jordan Tucker (guitar), and they released their debut LP A Hunger in 2014, accompanied by an Irish tour. Since then, Carswell & Hope have built a following in the US Midwest, sharing bills with Mayer Hawthorne, The Mowglis, Glenn Tilbrook (of Squeeze) and Mundy (IRL).

Carswell & Hope offer an eclectic blend of singer-songwriter, alt-rock and psychedelic, with spacious and delicate arrangements set amongst big rock sounds and rich vocal harmonies.
