Oh, sometime ago there was a rut in the Winter. A lull in melody. Guitars were getting dusty. Claire called to her tiny-footed sister, “I’ve writ some songs. Won’t you come back South and sing with me?” A season passed. Sister returned to the bawdy Southern heat, and thus was born Hope For Agoldensummer.
Hope is a family band from the fine town of Athens, GA. For nearly 14 years we’ve traveled the USA creating rusty, angelic melodies with our slide guitar, banjo, jangly percussion, glockenspiel, and a bowed handsaw, and overlaid it all with the sibling-soul-choir harmonies of Claire & Page Campbell. We’ve released 4 full-length albums, several EPs, and, woah, a few music videos.
Hope For Agoldensummer’s latest album, Life Inside The Body, was recorded over a 2 year span at Pop Heart Studio with the fabulous engineer/producer, Suny Lyons (PacificUV, Lovers). The album is awash with twang & harmony, plenty of dreamy imagery and junkyard goodness.
|CLAIRE CAMPBELL was born into late 70’s Southern Music peasantry. The granddaughter of (ye)olde-tyme legendary Eddie Campbell, who shall forever move his pinky toes independently of his other toes, Claire began playing guitar at the delicate age of 16. In 2002, almost a decade later, Claire concieved Hope For Agoldensummer, with her twang-infested neighbor, Deb Davis, and her tiny-footed sister, Page Campbell… and they’ve been touring every since. When home from tour, Claire puts on her doula hat and helps people have their babies. Also, she once scored a Nick Nolte film called “Off the Black”. And she composes our most requested hits.

She has a 2004 stationwagon, and owns two motorcycles and two bicycles, and she Sings and plays Guitar, Singing Saw, Accordion, Clarinet, Kazoo, Ankle Bells, and slaps her knees.|
|PAGE CAMPBELL was birthed on the new moon, in Georgia, into the deepest dark of any month that year. She has spent the last two decades finding light in a myriad of pursuits, thus extending her institutionalized education into it’s 3rd decade. In 2003, she was kidnapped from a Chicago filmschool and sank again into the South. Page has worked in numerous projects such as Dark Meat and Sea of Dogs.
