About

Poor Bishop HooperWeaving a patchwork of melodies atop an upright bass and a guitar, Poor Bishop Hooper is Jesse Braswell Roberts and his bride Leah Grace. They perform a menagerie of tunes ranging from bluegrass romps to the sweetest of love songs. A vibe reminiscent of bygone times seeps from their sound, whether they are playing songs written a hundred years ago or music they wrote themselves the day before. Hooper released two full length albums in 2014: Foreign Made a collection of original works, and Bricktop, a collection of American standards from the ’30s and ’40s. In November of 2015 they released ChristmasTide, a collection of vintage Christmas songs. Gold, their fourth album of original compositions, was released in March of 2017.
