Ashley Sofia grew up in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, just a quarter mile from her grandparents’ apple orchard in Upstate New York.

Drawing heavily from her surrounding landscape and leaning into the isolation that living in a state park afforded her, Sofia began a prolific career in songwriting at the age of 17.
Sofia released her debut record, Love and Fury, in 2014, with critical acclaim heralding her as the “21st-century reincarnation of the Laurel Canyon folk-rock sound.” After the success of Love and Fury, Sofia ventured outside the Blue Line of the Adirondack Park and began a new chapter in Nashville, where she still lives and makes music.
