Hampton is listed as one of the one hundred major architects of American rock and roll, in the British rock journal, "Footsoldiers and Kings".

He has also written lyrics, composed music, and collaborated on the book for a musical, "Love is a Crime". It's a culmination of years of songwriting, based on a concept and an idea he has had for a long time, of wanting to put "Love" on trial, theatrically and musically.

Here is his new song "Hope", exclusively on Truth Is Cool:

Hope

“This is the story of a bird

With no wings but certain that

It can fly”… That’s how the optimistic feel

In a climate of hopelessness.

The truth is: only hope can light the way

                      Only hope can heal the heart

                      Only hope can keep the clouds

                       From hiding the moon and the stars

                                                                        Paul Hampton

                                                                        4/17/15
