Growing up there was never a time where Sophia wasn’t singing. She began to play guitar at age 10 and from that point on never strayed away from pursuing a career in music. Sophia started off playing venues in her hometown of Park City, including events at the Sundance film festival and local summer concert series. From then on, she began to widen her horizons traveling to Nashville, New York, and Los Angeles playing shows and writing new music. Performing at places including the Netflix headquarters, YouTube Space LA, The Hotel Cafe, and Nashville’s iconic 3rd and Lindsley, to name a few. As well as, recording her originals and singing background vocals for artists with Atlantic Records.
Sophia’s original music explores themes familiar to all teenagers. Her songs are inspired by her day to day life experiences and those around her. Writing is Sophia’s true passion and she is currently working on writing songs for her future album, and finalizing her next single.
