A short bio...
Sophia Raven Rose (she/her)
Musician, Artist, Educator
Sophia Rose is a singer-songwriter currently based out of Portland, Oregon. She writes heartfelt indie folk. She is a classically trained vocalist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist who has been writing music since she was young. She released her debut EP, "Here We Are", in February 2021.
Sophia grew up in a small magical town on the coast of California. She started out playing original tunes at small community events, collaborating with other local musicians, and singing in her high school concert choir. She went on to pursue a bachelor's degree in music (BM) from UC Santa Cruz, where she studied opera and trained classically in vocal performance. You can listen to her Bachelor of Music Recital on YouTube.
Sophia's original music is subtle with catchy melodies and moody harmonies. A lot of her inspiration comes from the humbling power of nature and love, family and community, and our relationship to the land we live on.
In addition to her passion for music, Sophia loves to do work that empowers young people to engage with their environment and their communities. As a high school student, she co-facilitated an after-school songwriting and music recording project for young writers that culminated in a collaborative album release. She has 15+ years of experience working with children and youth of all ages in outdoor education and the arts. She has dreams of creating and nourishing inclusive community spaces centered around sharing music and art and providing educational opportunities through nature and creative pursuits!
