Acoustic Singer-Songwriter & Fingerstyle Guitarist

Lyric-driven ballads set to voice and finegrstyle guitar, inspired by minimalism & nature.

For my current album project I am collaborating with my mentor and classically trained master guitarist, Dmitry Koltakov. We’re working on a set of my songs to be performed and recorded live. We’re using only my voice and two classical guitars. It’s a soothing, intimate and heartfelt sound. If you are on my email list, I will send you free MP3s of the latest songs. You can also follow my musical journey on YouTube.

Welcome back! Thank you for being on my mailing list. I will email you when I have something new to share.

Original Songs

Lyric-driven ballads for voice and guitar by Inga Hope with Dmitry Koltakov.

CAROUSEL

Inga Hope: Guitar, voice, lyrics, music
Dmitry Koltakov: Additional guitar, production

When I hear church bells
Through the mist
I feel a pull I can’t resist
I hear a void in my heart
Reciting dreams that I forgot

The leaves are changing colours now
We waited for the fall to come
We wanted the return of spring
Searching under tomorrow’s wing

In a maze of silent dreams
A faded voice calls through the dark
Lost in sorrow blind in tears
Unsurpassed goodness guides the heart

We waited for the snow to fall
We wanted for spring to return
The leaves let go of their trees
And spin in a carousel of dreams

Like leaves we let go of our roots
And glide in the whims of the wind
And spin not knowing where we land
And spin not knowing where we will land

GOLDEN MOONLIT DREAMS

Inga Hope: Guitar, voice, lyrics, music
Dmitry Koltakov: Additional guitar, production

The moon is veiled in clouds of red
And shines gold, shines gold, shines gold
Shadows spread across the sand
As I walk, as I walk, as I walk

Do you see the same moon as I
The same sky as I
The same dream as I
Do you see the same path as I
The same golden moonlit path

I wish your mind was like a book
I need to know, need to know, I need to know
If you have a space for me
In your soul, in your soul, in your soul

Do you see the same moon as I
The same waves as I
The same sky as I
Do you see the same dreams as I
The same golden moonlit dreams

Do you see the same moon as I
The same sky as I
The same dream as I
Do you see the same path as I
The same golden moonlit path
Do you see the same dreams as I
The same golden moonlit dreams
