DJBooth is proud to announce that the

Jon Hope

will be rocking on

our stage

for this year's

A3C Festival

in Atlanta. Hope says “I use my life as the foundation of my music. That alone allows me to be original because no one else can speak from my perspective.” Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, as young boy, Hope endured the hardships of foster care, his father’s absence, and all that growing up in the inner city entails. Hope embraced these challenges and experiences, using them as motivation for success, channeling his thoughts and ideas through a pen and a pad.

Hope released his debut album,

Somekind of Wonderful

, instantly gratifying hip hop purists. The record put Hope on the national radar, with a feature in XXL Magazine’s coveted Show and Prove section and rotation on MTVu for his video,

Breathin

.

Jon Hope remains optimistic about the future of his music career. He reflects, “as long as I stick to the notion that this is a labor of love, I’ll never be unemployed!”

What Are You Most Excited About for A3C?

"I'm most excited about seeing all the people. With the internet age I've found that we now develop working relationships with people we've never met or only met on occasion. So its nice to get to see the folks I've been grinding with in that type of open musical environment."
