Dempsey Hope Releases New Track “reset”

(Los Angeles, CA – September 29th, 2021) Seattle-based artist on the rise Dempsey Hope releases his new track “reset” via RCA Records. Listen HERE. “reset” follows Dempsey’s latest tracks “strawberry cheesecake”, “birds”, “picture perfect”, “on my mind” and “autumn” which was featured in Billboard’s “10 Cool New Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week” column.

Dempsey says, ““reset” is an upbeat yet introspective record which don’t always go hand in hand for me. in a time where life still feels so limited because of covid 19 even in my most introspective of moments i find myself wanting to jump around and get this pent up energy out, sonically this record does that for me. conceptually the record is about going through a phase where you don’t feel like yourself and wanting to reset to that person you once were so comfortable being, but “reset” explores that life is ever changing and even though change is never easy, it is necessary. this is another record (in addition to birds and many others!) that jake and i were able to work with the legendary dave bassett on. it’s been nothing but a pleasure getting to know and learn from dave thus far and we’ve got a lot of records left in us.”

Last fall, Dempsey released the dempsey hope project. The project was a collection of 10 songs that Dempsey had spent months working on and featured “baby blue” ft. Olivia O’Brien (watch the lyric video HERE) as well as fan favorites such as “roller rink” which was featured in Billboard’s “10 Cool New Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week,” “time flies” and “elephant in the room” feat. gnash.

About Dempsey Hope:
Dempsey Hope has been a singer and performer since an early age. In 2009, Dempsey began recording his YouTube videos, gaining fans by doing covers and creating content with his childhood friend Kateel. He then got started with a local community based recording program in South Seattle, releasing his first original song “Game Time”, and started busking at local festivals and on the streets of Seattle.

In high school, Dempsey focused on sports, and was a member of the Nathan Hale Basketball Team that went undefeated and won the High School National Championship in 2017. He also led his Ultimate Frisbee Team to a Washington State Championship and the national stage. In 2016, Dempsey began to dive back into the world of music, taking a more serious approach to the craft of songwriting and since then has fully dedicated himself to pursuing music. In 2018, Dempsey linked up with Seattle based producer Jake Crocker and they got to work, developing and crafting much of what you hear in Dempsey’s sound today. Together they created tracks like “Commitment Issues”, “3 Years”, “When I Wake Up”, “time flies”, “elephant in the room feat. gnash” and “roller rink.” He has been called “an unbelievable talent” by Lyrical Lemonade and was featured in the Seattle Times. Leaning heavily on a sound that he calls “nostalgic”, Dempsey crafts poignant melodies with Pop and R&B influences that will make you a fan after just one listen.
