Her band Soul Scrimmage mixes soul and funk tunes with afrobeat and reggae, which is intended to create an energetic and uplifting atmosphere.

The band features Hope on sax and flute. She also provides vocals and serves as composer.

Robert Allen Parker Jr., creator of the The Broken String Collective, plays on the guitar. Public Enemy's lead guitarist Khari Wynn is on bass.
