“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." ” - January 2019

Sophie Dorsten Music
Award winning, National Recording artist Sophie Dorsten is an Indie-Pop/Folk singer-songwriter born and raised in the Phoenix, Arizona area. She has been performing her strong, dynamic sound around the Valley and beyond since she was 9 years old. #littleblondegirlbigvoice
I have been performing around the Phoenix area for the past 10 years at such venues as the Marquee Theatre, Crescent Ballroom, The Van Buren and Celebrity Theatre (both venues for finals at Proof is in the Pudding competition - in the fall 2018 season I won second place) Rhythm Room, Phoenix Children's Hospital, The Rebel Lounge, Queen Creek Olive Mill, Last Exit Live, and Whiskey Row Gilbert to name a few, as well as various local malls and festivals including Mesa Music Fest. I have performed the National Anthem at spring training games the past couple of springs for such teams as the Chicago Cubs, AZ Diamondbacks, and LA Dodgers; as well as at the City of Mesa Celebration of Freedom (4th of July) event for both the Naturalization ceremony and right before the fireworks. What an honor.
Sophie has been releasing EP’s and singles since she was 13. Her single "Tomorrow" which was recorded in Nashville just before Covid lock down was released in May 2020 and received with great reviews. "I wrote this about the unknown of what Tomorrow brings."
When the world shut down, the live shows stopped, her brother Alex moved back home from college, and they combined forces an started creating songs together. They write and record in their home studio and have released songs since November 2020. They work well together as you can hear on their songs - the lyrics, music, creativity, and production are beyond their years.
Sophie has also released a collaboration with 3Mind Blight titled "Reflections." She was excited to try a new genre/vibe and hope it shows her versatility.

“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.”
