Carswell & Hope.jpg

Carswell & Hope were formed in 2012 when Irishman Nick Carswell arrived in Lawrence, Kansas with guitar in hand. Serendipity stepped in as Nick found musicians Jason Slote (drums), Austin Quick (bass) Jordan Tucker (guitar) and Ryan McCall (keys).  Soon after, they released their debut LP, A Hunger in 2014, and hit the road in the US and Ireland.

Carswell & Hope bring vintage rock sounds and sensibilities with big harmonies, carefully crafted textures and inventive songwriting.


Carswell & Hope have built a following in the US, sharing bills with Mayer Hawthorne, The Mowglis, Glenn Tilbrook, and Mundy (IRL).
