The first full-length release from Moses and the Israelite is aptly titled. "Keep Hope Alive." explores the different situations one finds themselves in throughout life that can cause a drastic need of hope. From getting over a tough breakup, to the loss of a loved one, to just a bad day, songwriter James Lockhart sings of the reasons to nurture what small bits of hope that we may have in these times. When it's not putting a lighter spin on the harder parts of life, "Keep Hope Alive" features many tracks that belt out unchained happiness, expressing the hopeless romanticism that comes with a band in their late teens. Musically, the duo breaks away from their traditional guitar and ukulele sound to deliver folk, jazz, rock and bluegrass sounds into their new material. Whether you're having an awful day or an incredible day, this bright-eyed and bushy-tailed release is sure to put a smile on your face, and don't be surprised if you find yourself humming the catchy hooks and melodies within minutes of listening!
