Named a Cafe Lena Emerging Artist and My Second Music Video

Recently, Cafe Lena has named me an emerging artist.  This is a huge accomplishment for a folk rocker like myself, in fact I’ve dreamt about this moment since I was a little girl.  I’ve seen dozens of performances on that stage from Peter Mulvey to Anais Mitchell and I always hoped that one day I’d have my moment up there.  It’s an honor to have named a Cafe Lena emerging artist, following the same road my hero, Bob Dylan, walked in 1961.  I am a better musician for listening to my parents generation of  songwriters, and it’s my privilege to perform on the stage where many of them first performed the music that would change the world in the 60’s and 70’s from Arlo Guthrie to Pete Seeger. If there’s an Ashley Sofia show you shouldn’t miss, it will be this one. Wednesday, June 13 in Saratoga Springs at Cafe Lena.  To learn more about this amazing venue click here: http://www.caffelena.org/index.html

I just got back from filming my second music video in New York.  Jon Kilmer is such a pleasure to work with- he’s super focused, talented, and so much fun to be around.  While I haven’t seen any of the clips from our shoot, I have a feeling it’s going to be a great video.  I wrote a 10 song pop mash-up using Adele, Katy Perry, Weezy, The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Jordin Sparks, Bruno Mars, and Beyonce. I’m very excited to show off all the hard work that it took to make the video come to life.

This week I’ll also be doing a second photo shoot. As soon as the shots are ready, I’ll post them up on my website!

Thanks for stopping by!
