Things don’t always work out the way we want them to.
Hailing from Southern California, Emily Sophia’s relationship with music has always felt like a match made in heaven. Her love for music started as a toddler, watching Shirley Temple and Julie Andrews with her grandmother. Ever a true artist at heart, she would paint and write stories and poems as soon as she could hold a pen; her transition to an artist feels in many ways like destiny fulfilled. With her penchant for making immersive releases listeners can get into, there’s no doubt that the future is bright for this rising star.
Inspired by artists like Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Lorde, and Phoebe Bridgers, one thing stands in common. Sophia has always been enchanted by storytelling, and this infatuation finds its way into her work. She’s a master of painting and creating vast and vivid soundscapes and narratives you can get emotionally invested in, making each release feel near and dear to your heart. Delicately blurring the lines between pop, folk, and a little soft rock, this talented artist’s music is accessible to the ears and soul.
From the opening lines, “I pronounce you dead in my head /, But I still visit your grave now and then,” “Ghost” immediately puts you in all the feels. Led by beautiful yet sorrowful instrumentals that set the stage, Sophia’s tender vocals swell and burst with emotion in the most touching way possible. As she mourns the memories of a romance dim out, lyrics like “I didn’t mean to say your name three times / And now I’ve brought you back to life” and “I still see your shadow lurking through the streets / It’s scary that your ghost keeps haunting me” paint a delicate, yet heartbreaking picture. Sophia has us dancing in the palm of her hand, but with her level of artistic talent, we shouldn’t be surprised.
