HOPE VISTA - OWNER
Hope Vista is the diet Dr. Pepper drinking, Backstreet Boys loving, vintage-gaming lead vocalist of alternative rock band VISTA. Initially a solo artist, her final EP "PREVAIL," produced by ZK Productions (Mayday Parade, Set It Off, Cartel), was released in November 2015. Immediately following the release, she founded VISTA, releasing their debut EP shortly after, and garnering praise from publications such as Rock Sound and Alternative Press. Since 2017, VISTA has completed 5 national tours, earned 700,000 Spotify streams, and opened for Set It Off, Against The Current, and more. Known for her electrifying stage presence, unconventional style, and colorful lyricism, she is also a published author, having released two autobiographical novels, "PREVAIL: Finding Normal" and "Timothy," since 2019.
After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Writing Arts from Rowan University in May '15, she began to build the foundation for 25/8 Public Relations. The basis was simple - Hope wanted to provide affordable, yet effective, press campaigns to artists on the rise. She took her personal experiences in the music industry, applied them to a business plan, began a 6-month research process, and created 25/8 PR in her first one-bedroom apartment in March 2016.
Still active with VISTA, Hope is consistently making connections and fostering working relationships with new publications. With the goal of helping young bands build their press history (without breaking the bank), 25/8 PR was worked with nearly 100 artists since inception.
