A Band On Hope
A Band On Hope is the brainchild of producer Kristian Sharpe and lyricist Ill Literate whose unique skills have combined in one ambitious project to create an utterly original sound quite unlike any other.
A 13 track opus of block rocking beats, rocking riffs, soaring synths and razor-sharp raps, incredible musicality merges seamlessly with rapid fire raps resulting in an album of astounding quality and invention.
Multi-instrumentalist Kristian Sharpe has dipped into the worlds of hip hop, rock, funk, soul, blues, electro and jazz to lovingly sculpt an eclectic collection of sonic soundscapes, ranging from the edgy, strung out synth-blues of So Far to the haunting and melodic strings of God Knows, up to the in your face punk tinged Trapped Inside Escape and down to the melancholy ambience of Dead Angels.
The Scribes’ frontman Ill Literate compliments these ever-evolving musical tapestries flawlessly with lyrics full of creativity and meaning.
The fully fleshed out tales spun on tracks such as Standstill and Russian Doll transport the listener to another perspective, one often tinged with sadness, and whilst the introspective flow of thought found on songs like Spaced Out and Phantom Of Hiphopera are touchingly personal pieces of work, these sit stark contrast to the universal statements proudly proclaimed on the anthemic Che Lives and Low Budget High Life.
AbandOnHope is a project full of life, full of thought and full of innovation, and is something you really do need to experience for yourself to fully appreciate.
“A Band On Hope” - 13 track LP
Released 15/09/2016 on iTunes, Amazon & all good online retailers.

The Story of Lanky And The Beard’
Chris (Lanky) and Matt (The Beard) met each other in 2015 whilst performing in and around the Plymouth open mic scene and thought it would be a good idea to meet up and write some original material. Since then the duo has combined their love of music and need to succeed to work together on an exciting new project – ‘Lanky And The Beard’ (LATB) was born.
The duo has strong individual achievements and has stepped closer to the front door of the music industry. Lanky has had tracks played on BBC Radio 6, made numerous amounts of dance tracks with various producers including ‘Unknown Brain’ releasing the track ‘Superhero’ which has now been signed to NCS. The Beard has also had BBC radio play and has supported the likes of Phat Bollard, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Lucy Spraggan.
LATB have finished recording a few tracks and are now ready to release their debut single ‘The Element’ which you can download now!
