Hope Sandoval


Hope Sandoval is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, California who is the leading singer of the Duo Mazzy Star and her late act called Hope Sandoval and The Warm Inventions. Starting in the late 80's, Sandoval Collaborated to David Roback to form Mazzy Star after Kendra Smith left their former band called Opal. Roback and Sandoval released three albums in the 90's and broke up so she wandered from one project to another, with her gloomy-hazy voice, until she formed Hope Sandoval and The Warm Inventions with My Bloody Valentine drummer, Colm Ó Cíosóig. Because the winter is coming and her voice is so warm, I hope that you'd also like some of her songs. I've chosen five of them, it's recommended to listen to them with a warm cup of tea/coffee. Enjoy
