Known for her “bright vocals” and “lyrically complex narratives,” Sophia DeLeo is a New York City based folk-pop singer/songwriter. Her writing focuses on themes of love, loss, and nostalgia, typically drawing from personal experience. After teaching herself to play guitar at age 14, Sophia wrote songs in secret for over a decade before releasing her debut EP The Boys Who Make Me Cry in 2021.
Sophia’s sophomore EP Drama Queen is set to release in July 2023. The record tells the story of her own coming of age growing up in a small town in Northern Virginia. In reference to the first 2 singles off the EP, Ear to the Ground Music writes: “Her songwriting has a charm about it that impresses every time. It’s personal, intimate, like listening to a diary entry… and it’s a joy.” The third single off Drama Queen, “My Body Was My Own”, is set to release June 8th, 2023, and Sophia is thrilled to be returning to Rockwood for the first time since 2020 to celebrate.
