“Hope & Sorrow came out in 2007 and brings a more organic feel to the music of Wax Tailor.

Hope & Sorrow  features past collaborators Charlotte Savary, Marina Quaisse & The Others as well as newcomers such as soul empress Sharon Jones, spoken word extraordinaire Ursula Rucker and rappers Voice and A.S.M., who made quite a sensation on the breakthrough single Positively Inclined.

The album reaffirms Wax Tailor’s evocative take on music, showcasing songwriting as well as a more prevalent use of instruments like the flute or strings. With these 12 tracks and 3 interludes, he will once again direct you on a journey where vocal guests become more prominent and act as guides in this musical odyssey. This album will make you reflect on your whole record collection.” - Le Plan

About Wax Tailor:

The trip-hop performance moniker of one Jean-Christophe Le Saoût, Wax Tailor first emerged in the French electronica scene in 2004 (with the EP release Lost the Way), but didn't release his debut album until 2006. That debut, Tales of the Forgotten Melodies, was a hit both in France and in the United States, and made quite a dent on the CMJ charts that year. In 2007, Wax Tailor returned to the spotlight with his second full-length, Hope & Sorrow. Featuring vocalist Charlotte Savary and Ursula Rucker, this second album was enough of a success to warrant a number of live shows featuring Wax Tailor and his four-piece band. – AllMusic
