About Hope Darst
A Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and worship leader, Hope Darst spent the first 25 years of her life dreaming of a career in music but elected to follow her faith and raise a family instead. That dream came to fruition in 2020 with the release of her debut album, Peace Be Still.
In 2013, after spending the decade prior tending to a growing family and leading worship at a local church, Darst began sowing the seeds for what would become the Belonging Co, a church that began in a local basement and eventually expanded into one of the fastest-growing worship organizations in the United States. Part of the church's music and songwriting team, Darst appeared on the Belonging Co's first two worship albums, All the Earth and Awe+Wonder. She parlayed that experience into a recording contract with Fair Trade Services and released the single "Peace Be Still" in 2020, with the full-length album of the same name arriving later that year. ~ James Christopher Monger
