Hope Floats is the title of the new single digital release by Michelle Qureshi and Paul Landry. It’s an instrumental work that features Michelle on acoustic guitar set against Paul’s spacious, flowing and delicate soundscape. This is their first collaboration, and you can expect many more from this pair of versatile artists.
“It always amazes me when two masters of their craft get together and attempt to create something greater than the sum of its parts, and this is another example of where that eﬀort succeeds. Michelle & Paul are two of the best-known artists in the new age and ambient world, but this work goes further than the two genres, more like “new age folk”! As with a lot of Michelle’s work of late, she shows here that she has a rather sophisticated “folky” side to her artistry that really has the opportunity to shine here as Paul takes the oar on the “new age” side of the boat. This is a great piece that will cross musical borders and find itself on many playlists! Well done!”
