Hope Riot is an experimental vocal project born and bred in El Paso, Texas. A blend of hypnotic vocals and heavy bass lines, she takes her inspiration from the local desert landscape and deep culture of our hometown. She has just begun recording a full-length LP at Sonic Ranch in our very own Tornillo, Texas; not only is it the highest quality facility in our region, but also the world’s biggest residential recording studio.
