Born as a studio project in early 2009, Silverhope was never intended to be a band. Founding member Steve McMullen had simply brought some demo ideas to a friend with some recording equipment in hopes of making the ideas into songs. Following much enthusiasm about these ideas from producer/engineer/guitarist Ryan Tobias, Silverhope was put into motion with intentions of recording the songs and performing as a solidified group.
After nearly a year of writing and recording, Silverhope had laid down three songs and began searching for other members to fit the required positions of bass and drums. Corey Samson was merely hinted with the possibility of joining the new project and having worked with Steve in the past, jumped on board quickly showing great amounts of enthusiasm and drive on the drum kit.
Silverhope doesn’t intend to confuse the listener or elaborate on epic song journeys, but rather keeps the songs simple. “I never try too hard to divulge the meaning of the song with metaphors, although I feel a song can be made better by proper use of metaphors and melody,” Steve says. “We hope to intrigue the listener with a good solid beat and just rock along”.
So brace yourself, Silverhope is here to catch your ear and make you a fan of their melodic rock. As singer Steve McMullen states, “Music is meant to be the soundtrack of you. The part that aids your moods and changes your life. Let Silverhope be that sound”.
