Indie Sensation, Lanterns of Hope Releases their most ambitious EP, “Harbors.”

(Isstories Editorial):- Yakima, Aug 20, 2018 ( – Winter in July was the name of the first label that got Joshua Hope started and landed him his first break with a nationwide distribution deal. After being planted in the Midwest and traveling in ten different states he saw a crossroads calling him back to the Northwest. Joshuas Crossroads seemed like an end but turned into the moments where he eventually penned the bulk of his catalog. After a hiatus, composing and recording his first solo release instrumental album, Lessons in the Wind, Joshua wrote a hundred songs. From 2012-2018 Joshua released several albums and stuck to the

Northwest where he derives a lot of his influence. It is the Americana music in Washington and Oregon that has inspired Joshua to make a new sound with the feelings he evokes. However, the song, There was this girl is a highlight of a file of thirty songs that were inspired by Joshuas previous girlfriend and then-bandmate. It seems that the relationships and experiences in life that dont work out, tend to make the best songs, and Lanterns of Hope has included songs that range from heartbreak to hopeful on each of their projects.

Songwriters reflect on the past to express what they never let go of until ink hits the page, and Lanterns of Hope was birthed from past moments where there was much to let go. Joshuas first single, Circles released on Winter in July in 2003 brought forth the idea that if one can let go, then we can let go together. It was his first experience at a song that poured out what was held onto both in the writing and in lyrical theme. Every session since Circles was a growing point with Circles the emotional foundation.
