Welcome, Sophia Salcido. Thanks for joining us to talk about your single, "Everywhere." What was one major lesson you learned from writing this particular song?
This song really was my “moving on” song. It was the last song that I wrote from a broken heart. After finishing the song and hearing its release, I have finally let go of some hurt. So, I learned through this song, that healing takes time and is okay, and music has the power to heal.
Can you share more about the creative process for "Everywhere" and what brought about the inspiration for the song?
I wrote this from my feelings of loss after a break-up, and I was just expressing how hard it was to move on when everywhere I look, I see his face. I see the streets we used to walk down every day, the friends we used to share, everywhere I look it was so hard not to see him. As for my process, I wrote it at home on my keyboard after looking through some old pictures of us on my phone. Then I had a phrase in my mind that I couldn’t get out of my head. So, I went to my keyboard and started creating the melody that I felt at that moment. As I played, the words came. After I finished the song, I sent it to my co-writers at Off the Row, Erin McCaffrey, and Sarah Morey. They added their thoughts. We began collaborating on making it better. When we were all satisfied and in agreement, it was done
What were you hoping your audience would take away from "Everywhere" after listening to it for the first time?
I always hope my audience feels that they are not alone, and time will heal. When you get out of a relationship and you’re not over the relationship right away. It’s okay to let yourself cry and feel the pain. Eventually, the memories of that person will no longer hurt but, you will genuinely be able to look at them and wish them the best.
Your voice is incredibly thorough, nuanced, and seasoned. Was this something that came naturally to you or was it crafted over time?
I have always loved to sing since the time I was little. I came from a musical family and was always encouraged to sing. When I was twelve years old, I began to sing at my church. This prompted me to continue to want to grow as a vocalist. So, I continually work towards training my voice on my own through practice and study of vocal techniques that I find online.
What's next for you?
I have two more songs that will be released in the next couple of months. I, hopefully, will be working towards recording an EP this year. Also, I want to start pursuing opportunities for more live performances and just see where the music takes me.
