Gabriel Sanchez and Frank Dancey are both singer/songwriters located in the Tampa Bay, FL area.
Rising from the Tampa music scene, they have gathered a broad range of influences over
time playing shows with their band Hope Darling. Taking on-board inspiration from Rock as much as Blues, Classical, Reggae, and even Hip-Hop. Having built a name for themselves on the local scene, the band began to branch out finding themselves performing nationally. An honour that has since been motivating them to push their music and work ethic further and further.
Their single “Lifeline” has created waves, thanks in part to being featured in Spike Lee’s Netflix series, “She’s Gotta Have It”. Along with local, national and international airplay, the song has taken them and their band to new heights than ever before. Opportunities are growing and evolving for the hard-working, dedicated group.
