Modern Hope

By Dennis Ellsworth

Dennis Ellsworth will release his latest album, Modern Hope, on October 20 at Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown.

Ellsworth has never made the same album twice, but with each new collection of songs he assembles, listeners can always expect to be taken on an emotional journey through the Charlottetown-based artist’s lyrics and melodies. 

On Modern Hope, Ellsworth borrows from the mystical world of British folk to craft 10 mini-masterpieces, some of which are sung barely above a whisper. Part of that songwriting approach was a reaction to the challenges our society has faced in recent years, along with Ellsworth welcoming a new baby into his family in 2022.

The cover art for Modern Hope is by Lenny Gallant at Birdmouse.
