Hailing from rural Nebraska, Small Town Hope took their name literally. The trio formed in 2005, as sophomores in high school, and built a very strong following throughout their home state and the surrounding region. Operating on DIY ethics, Small Town Hope is not afraid to put in the hard work that it takes to garner a sizable fan base. The three members have found great chemistry not only in writing catchy punk tunes, but also in managing the other facets of the band. Seeing an opportunity to reach a bigger audience and use their other music industry talents such as production and engineering, Small Town Hope Relocated to Minneapolis earlier this year.

The trio is founded on a brand of pop punk that embraces creative melodies and infectious hooks. Their sound, highly nostalgic, draws influence from those late 90s bands like Blink-182, Goldfinger, and Sum 41...oh the good old days. Small Town Hope differentiates from the current pop punk genre with meticulous instrumentation, attentive to every last detail.

The production on their new self-titled, self released EP also demonstrates the maturity of a young band who is patient and focused when steering their own ship. Engineered and produced by drummer Andy Keech, the sound is full and flawless combining exceptional organic tones with 21st century digital sampling.

Currently, the group is locked up in their home studio writing as much new material as possible for a release expected to come out this spring. Along with all the focus towards the new production, the trio is also spending their days preparing their live show. Concentrating more on the album, the group plans to refrain from performing until the release of the album, then touring and promoting their most recent work.

Small Town Hope has all the right tools: great songwriting, enduring mindset, and the ability to spend as much time as they need to perfect their sound with a drummer who is an up-and-coming producer. Add their relentless work ethic and it’s only a matter of time before the buzz in underground circles overflows into a bigger pool of listeners. Look for their debut full-length album in 2011.
