“A match made in heaven” may be fanciful, but the blended musicality of Ashley and Eric L’Esperance comes close to validating this old saying. The pair first felt the electricity of their undeniable chemistry at an impromptu song swap. A year and a half later they were married and released their debut album Where We’ve Been & Where We’re Going. Jessica Phaneuf, MVY Radio, said “I listen to A LOT of music, and this [album] would be at the top of the pile” and Sound of Boston said the set “offers something for romantics and realists alike.” Their music marries two distinctly talented songwriters whose sound is shaped by tastes of folk, acoustic and pop. Ashley performs subtle yet stunning melodies with a classically-trained, but often folksy voice. Her poetic lyrics explore the deep mysteries within nature and human relationship. Eric’s obvious reverence for the beloved songwriters of the 60’s and 70’s shines through his sweetly deep voice. His prose-like lyrics unravel the joys and struggles of life’s journeys, and take what appears to be freeform and make it flow beautifully into well-crafted pieces. Together, the two artists complement each other in every respect. PopMatters says, “It is folk music, but folk that doesn’t find any quick or easy comparisons. Instead, it might be said that the L’Esperance’s have found their unique path within the storied tradition.” Red Line Roots says “I am awestruck with the harmonies that Ashley & Eric L’Esperance are able to blend and spin together. Truly beautiful and moving…”

In recent years, The Promise is Hope have earned their place among New England’s finest emerging acts, with a live performance that isoften described as beautifully moving, inspired, and connected. They have been invited to perform at Club Passim’s 2016 & 2018 Campfire Festival, the 2017 Connecticut Folk Festival, and the 2018 Huntington Folk Festival; and have shared the stage with renowned folk artists such as Amy Speace, Antje Duvekot, Parsonfield, The Mallet Brothers, and Gaelynn Lea among many others. They have released a sophomore album this past May which has garnered some wonderful press attention. The duo has won several Worcester Music Awards, and are currently nominated for the 2018 New England Music Awards “Roots Act of the Year.”
