19-year-old Sophie Allison from Nashville is breaking out of bedroom pop.
Tell us about your music. What do you most enjoy singing about, and how would you like your songs to make people feel?
I like singing about my personal experiences in a way that kind of meshes a lot of moments into one to capture the overall feeling. I hope my songs can make people feel like they can relate to me.
How did you go about putting together your new mini-album, ‘Collection’?
I put ‘Collection’ together by kind of choosing the songs we played most live with the band and the ones I played solo usually. It was pretty easy in the end.
Do you have any further releases in the works, or are you taking musician life one step at a time?
I’m working on a new album at the moment, actually. It’s going to be a full-length, and it should be coming out in the not so distant future.
What did you grow up listening to? Do you come from a musical family?
My parents aren’t very musical, but they definitely like music a lot. I grew up listening to stuff like The Who and Bruce Springsteen from my dad, and I kind of started branching out to indie rock, punk, shoegaze - all that stuff - in high school.
Are you a creative person in non-music ways too?
I think I’m creative when it comes to writing or thinking, but I’m not very good at many other forms of art.
What else do you do for fun?
I like to watch TV shows and hang out with friends a lot. I’d also say I like to travel.
