Bio... National Recording Artist Sophie Dorsten is an Indie/Folk Singer-Songwriter born and raised in the Phoenix area. She has been singing her unique sound around the Valley since she was 9 years old. In the beginning, she and her brothers were in a band called Sophie and The Boyz, as she sang and played bass guitar. After several years, the band broke up and she picked up the acoustic guitar and taught herself as she wrote songs and learned fun covers. Sophie has released 3 EP’s; “Beauty of the Heart” recorded and released when she was just 13, “Leaves” released a couple years later, and then in September 2018 released “Roses” with 3 beautiful originals on it. November 2019 Sophie released a single titled “Growing.” “I wrote this song for my mom for all she does for me, but also for anyone that has someone that loves them through it all!” April 2020, she released the fun single “Phasin'” – co-written and produced by Austin Moore (The Proudest Monkey.) Sophie then went to Nashville to record a beautiful ballad titled “Tomorrow” which was released May 2020. “I originally wrote this about the unknown of what Tomorrow will bring; personally it was because of graduating HS, but I feel it could mean something different to people now with all that is happening in the world.” Look for her music on all music platforms! #littleblondegirlbigvoice “Tomorrow” will give you both chills and goosebumps at the same time. Sophie Dorsten is one of the most talented singers I’ve ever heard in my life. Not only does she have an angelic voice, but her vocal range is hella impressive. On “Tomorrow,” Sophie’s upcoming single, she blooms by letting her heart bleed and by singing fearlessly. From the moment you press play on “Tomorrow,” you will be submerged in it’s lively production, mind-blowing harmonies, and beautiful melodies. Additionally, you will love how Sophie pieces herself together lyrically on the song, as, throughout it, she talks about finding a way to make tomorrow a better day than yesterday by being both positive and optimistic.” QD, The Ratings Game, April 15, 2020 “This 16-year-old singer-songwriter has been blessed with a voice that’s nothing less than spellbinding, which she uses to brilliant effect on the emotionally vulnerable ballads that make up her latest recording, a breathtaking three-song collection called “Roses.” Ed Masley, http://azcentral.com, January 11, 2019 Sophie has been a part of Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock teen center for the past several years volunteering her time in both giving vocal lessons as well as big events held, whether it be singing at the event or physically helping. She has competed in the Alice Cooper Proof is in the Pudding talent competition and won 2nd place in 2018. Sophie has even performed back-up vocals with Alice Cooper at a press release party at the teen center – what a blast! Sophie has performed the National Anthem for the Chicago Cubs, LA Dodgers, SF Giants, and Oakland A’s for several years during Spring Training, as well as the City of Mesa’s 2019 4th of July celebration for both the Naturalization ceremony and right before fireworks.
Top 5 influences? are From Indian Lakes – super chill, love their vibe! Adele and Selena Gomez influenced me greatly when I was young, and I feel they helped shaped me. I do love Post Malone and Billie Eilish well – fun to sing along with and move to.
New Projects? I am currently working on several new songs – no dates for release yet but hoping to finish them up soon! I am super excited about them! One of them is a bit different for me but I love trying new sounds! My most recent single is “Tomorrow” which I recorded in Nashville and I just love this song! I wrote it about the unknown of what tomorrow brings – originally it was because I was a senior in high school and didn’t know how it would it be after graduation (I am a 2020 grad.) 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…”
What got you into music? I have been singing since I could talk (probably most of us say that) and when I saw my older brother playing in a band, I wanted to be a part of that. I was 9 at the time and we played together along with my younger brother for about 3 years and then off on my own, writing and teaching myself guitar. I’ve been performing around the Phoenix area since I was 9 almost every weekend until covid.
Anything to tell your fans? One thing I would tell my fans is “go for your dreams no matter how big they may seem – one step at a time and see where it goes – nothing is impossible.” Music is my passion and it’s overwhelming at times but I never want to stop pushing forward to the next level – there’s always a next level!
Biggest Goals for 2021 My biggest goals for 2021 is to tour (covid willing) and of course make more music to share with the world.
