Sophie Stevens is a singer-songwriter from Winnipeg, Canada. Since the debut of her steadfast music career, Sophie has been skillfully creating songs that take elements of the modern indie folk-pop landscape while bringing classical guitar, unique piano riffs, and enchanting melodies into the mix. Combining her heartwarming vocals, gentle lyricism, and a love for all walks of life expressed in every note, Sophie sings indie folk songs of hope to give a break from the tiresome parts of life and bring reminders of the joyful aspects of being human.
Inspired by her passion for music as an emotionally-charged teenager, Sophie has crafted a unique sound by exploring many diverse genres from punk rock to musicals and honing her angelic vocals through growing up in choir. While writing meaningful music has always been a key part of her identity, Sophie has consistently aimed to provide listeners with a break from the anxieties and alienation we face in our own heads by offering not only a captivating, heartwarming sound, but a stage-presence of pure coziness and unconditional love for all. This passionate musician has manifested a reputation that can only be summed up in one word: wholesome.
Sophie’s long-awaited debut single, “No One’s Happy,” has been an outwardly loving attempt at bridging her own heartache, lessons-learned, and growing pains to the rest of the world. Through a brutally honest and unexpected twist of the chorus, Sophie offers a connecting and wholesome reminder that everyone is dealing with pain, anxiety, and growth in their own ways, regardless of how lonely or isolating their problems may feel. Wise beyond her years, Sophie has bared her own vulnerable life stories in exchange for offering introspective and lovingly-learned advice, in lyrics that bounce without breath and melody that gently twists and turns. No One’s Happy is a perfect example of a coming-of-age musical connection between a passionate young musician and the rest of the world, in a beautiful attempt to destroy cliches and provide comfort to those dealing with their own ups and downs.
While excitedly pursuing her own career, Sophie has shared stages with the likes of Royal Canoe, Mo Kenney, and Wax Mannequin and played at Manitoba music festivals including Winnipeg Folk Fest, Festival Du Voyageur, and Real Love Summer Fest. On top of her personal music career, her knowledge and love of harmony and instrumentation has enabled her to accompany fellow musicians Micah Erenberg and Logan McKillop in bands and on multiple tours, as well as appear on albums by Richard Inman and the former Erenberg.
Sophie’s debut single “No One’s Happy” is out November 1st, 2019, following many more exciting announcements for the coming year. No matter how you feel or where your heart may be, Sophie’s music can’t help but pull you away from the negativity of everyday life to remind you that everything can be okay, even if only in four minute song increments.
