My name is Sophie Dorsten and I am an Indie Pop/Folk singer-songwriter from the Phoenix area. I have been performing all over the Valley for about 7 years. I have also released several EP’s, the first one when I was 13 titled "Beauty of the Heart" that included 3 originals and a couple of fun covers. Then in 2017 I released a single "Letters of Lies" and in early 2018 "Leaves" and put them on a EP titled "Leaves." In September 2018 I released "Roses" with a release party at Last Exit Live. Here are a couple of recent reviews…
“This 16-year-old singer-songwriter has been blessed with a voice that’s nothing less than spellbinding, which she uses to brilliant effect on the emotionally vulnerable ballads that make up her latest recording, a breathtaking three-song collection called “Roses.”

“When I first heard Sophie’s voice I could not believe such a mature sound came out of a 16 year old. Blew me away. Her new EP Roses is a sampling of not just her talent in music, but also in writing. She also recently did a live version of “O Holy Night at a Proof is in the Pudding music competition that literally brought tears to my eyes (the good kind.) She plays many gigs valley-wide so plenty of opportunities to catch this rising star.”
