ARTIST • SONGWRITER
Sophia Alexa is a singer-songwriter with an intriguing background; born to German and American parents in California, she was raised in Amsterdam and has based in London for over 10 years. Moving schools and cities a number of times, she often found herself feeling like an outsider and music was the one constant she could cling to. At school she was overly shy and introverted and turned to writing songs as a way to feel less alone. Poetry, the guitar, reading and songwriting became reliable outlets for her.
Growing up, Sophia developed an enduring love for classic singers like Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Stevie Nicks and Neil Young who have all influenced her style, mixing folk-inspired pop music with an electronic edge and her soulful voice as the focus. Mostly in an identity crisis about where home is, Sophia’s lyrics are vulnerable, diary-like and highly relatable for girls trying to grow up and understand life, whilst at least a hint of her quirky personality and humour permeates all her songs.
Sophia is currently working towards her debut release in mid-2021.
