‘Hope from the piano-guitar duo Kevin Hays and Lionel Loueke is magical. Their meditative excursions interweave sparkly, trickling interplay with bluesy spells and latin undercurrents, utilising percussive taps and low-level vocals to add to the album’s lightly carried, spiritual vein.’ London Jazz News
‘….there is an ongoing presentation of well thought out world themes, largely jazz driven, exploring profound issues. It’s a blend of beauty and substance.’ Audiophile Audition
Celebrated musicians Kevin Hays & Lionel Loueke release their debut album Hope on 30th August 2019 and subsequent tour in Europe.

Hope is warm, outreaching and remarkable.
