Sophie Dorsten is our incredible Weekly Wordsmith

At just 18 years old, Sophie Dorsten is a singer-songwriter talented beyond her years.

Sophie begun her ventures into music at the age of just 9, performing in a band alongside her brothers playing bass guitar and singing.

Aptly-titled band ‘Sophie and the Boyz’ performed together for 3 years, an experience that introduced Sophie to the world of music and live performance.

But all good things come to an end, Sophie explains…

“The little band broke up and I taught myself guitar and started writing songs. I wrote and recorded my first EP when I was 13 and have not stopped.”

Sophie Dorsten has been honing and perfecting her craft ever since, creating an acoustic-pop sound that is a pleasure to listen to.

Our first introduction to Sophie was through her single ‘Tomorrow’. An easy listening tune featuring Sophie’s ethereal vocals, beautiful harmonies and soft pianos.

The track is a must listen, see for yourself.

“I wrote ‘Tomorrow‘ about the unknown of what tomorrow brings. For me it was because I was a senior in high school (yes, I’m a 2020 grad!) and I didn’t know what to expect after graduation.

As it turns out, none of us knew this all would be happening, and I feel the song has taken on a new meaning because of Covid. ‘I can hardly breathe now, how do I breathe Tomorrow…’ defines the song; we do not know what tomorrow holds…but it’s alright, it’ll be ok.”

So what’s next for the talented Sophie Dorsten?

“I have been using this strange time of no shows to write and paint (art calms me and helps me re-focus.) I have several songs in the works and hope to be going back to Nashville to record them as soon as possible..

..I am also working on a music video for ‘Tomorrow’ on my own – the original plans were changed with everyone in quarantine, so I made a new plan and I’m trying to finish that.”

This incredible songwriter has already made her mark on music at the tender age of 18.

With plenty more music in the bank, there is so much more to come from Sophie Dorsten.
