Hope Sandoval

"Hope formed The Warm Inventions and released their first album called Bavarian Fruit Bread, in 2001. This album sounds little different in terms of theme, voice, and instrumentation from that of her work with Mazzy Star. Subsequently, The Warm Inventions released three EPs but received very little commercial success, one video on MTV, and very little radio play. Hope recorded a song, "Wild Roses", for a compilation CD released by Air France titled In The Air (2008). Hope and The Warm Inventions will release their second album, Through The Devil Softly, on September 29, 2009. In live performance, Hope prefers to play in near darkness with only a dim backlight."
