Review for Ed Englerth’s Latest Release- ‘Hope Dream Sigh’

Ed Englerth- ‘Hope Dream Sigh’ Review

By C.W. Ross

‘Hope Dream Sigh’ is the 9th solo recording from musician Ed Englerth. This release features 17 tracks of music that ranges in style from, folk, rock, and blues to jazz.

Ed Englerth is a musician’s musician having many years of experience under his belt playing in the bands Asian and Earthen Vessel in the 70’s and since then playing with a who’s who of talented musicians.

Tracks that caught my attention included the opening cut, “Haunted.” The song opens with an inviting bass line that draws you into the song. “How Do I Love,” a mid tempo folk song is another favorite of mine that offers up some interesting slide guitar work.

The lighter track, “I Do I Don’t,” offers up an experimental vibe that sounded like a mix of polka and ska meets jazz. Track’s 12 & 13, “Wish You Were Here” and “Empty Pockets,” brings some rock to the release.

With all of the different songs and styles found on, ‘Hope Dream Sigh’ you’re sure to find something that will tickle your fancy.


Review Takeaway: In describing his music one of the words Ed Englerth uses is, ‘intelligent.’ I think that word fits his music perfectly with its smartly written lyrics that are equally as important as the music vessel that’s used to perform them.
