Singles and EPs
Imagine if The National made a Taylor Swift record endorsed by Chris Martin, Jack Antonoff, and Ben Folds—now you essentially have a Cade Hoppe record. No matter whose music inspires comparison, Cade sets himself apart from others in the pop landscape with his warm, baritone vocals complemented by earnest lyricism and sticky pop melodies. In late 2020, Cade released his 13-song project, “Poor Man’s Love,” to some success; the third single, “Best Friend,” garnered nearly 20,000 Spotify streams in the first month due to a strong push from Spotify’s algorithmic playlists.
As these numbers grew, he wasted no time putting the pieces together for his next project. Before the year was over, Cade connected and made his first collaboration with producer Harper James of indie pop-duo Eighty Ninety called “Loverly High”.
