JFH Indie Music Spotlight Review

Holy Hope

Holy Hope
Longing for Home

Street Date: March 19, 2019
Style: Piano



Holy Hope is the stage name for Kerry Douglass Keyser, a solo piano artist who specializes in creating meditative music for the church. Her latest offering, Longing for Home, brings 13 original compositions revolving around a desire for home, whether that be a home we had or currently have, or our future heavenly home. The pieces are quiet and unassuming, with subtle melodies that may not immediately catch the ear. If you're used to piano music that contains stronger hooks, Keyser's music may take some getting used to, but subsequent listens will pay off and reveal the quality of her work. As such, this record makes for great background music while spending time in God's Word or if you're feeling stressed. Some of the tracks do tend to blur together or end abruptly, but the majority are strong compositions.

Fans of piano music will find plenty to love here and those looking for peaceful background music may also uncover a gem.
