Angela Soffe is an award-winning singer-songwriter and performer in Yakima, Washington. Known for her soaring vocals and gentle folk melodies, she has amassed a devoted fan base in the Pacific Northwest.
Her recent album, "Second Wind" was an independent move out of the quiet of personal darkness. The album is a bold return to music after 8 years away, and reflects on the challenge of stepping away from 30 years in Mormonism. The album won the nomination for Americana Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards. Her new single, "Rocks" hit the ground running in 2018, winning the Great American Songwriting Contest 2019 and garnering the attention of music gatekeepers who noted that her poignant lyrics created a social stir.
Skope Magazine calls her music, "timeless, with a message that truly resonates.""We hear an artist that is breaking new ground in her own way" says Independent Artist Buzz. She and her 4-piece band, (Angela Soffe Band) perform Americana nuggets in every venue, bringing a breath of freshness to their fans. The band has garnered accolades and awards for performances brimming with understated roots music virtuosity, and boundless creativity.
Her songs follow a darkness into light journey and have been compared to the sounds of Allison Krauss and Natalie Merchant. The perfect blend of piano, folk guitar, chiming electric guitar, upright bass, harmonica and sweet mandolin. "Angela Soffe is likely one of the bravest souls we have encountered on this journey of Women In Music," says The Lola Sessions.
Her most recent single release, "Alright to Be You" with electro-pop producer, Milocraft dropped in January 2019. With it, she maintains her strong voice and messaging. Her "Be Moved Project" aims at crafting music that cuts to the soul of music-making: that every voice matters. Learn more about this project here: http://www.patreon.com/angelasoffemilocraft.com
