Sophie Dorsten is an indie-pop singer/songwriter born and raised in the Phoenix, Arizona area. She has been singing her strong, dynamic sound around the Valley and beyond since she was 9 years old. When the world shut down due to COVID her brother Alex moved back home from college and they combined forces and started creating songs together.

Their new single ‘Butterflies’ is out 28th January. A pre-save is available here.

“It’s a very poetic, lyrical song about wanting to escape reality and live in this world of fantasy, but I know I have to wake up from that dream land.”

If butterflies could escape from my mind. What would they do? where would they go?

“Alex and I recorded it in our home studio. I wrote the song, lyrics and melody, and he created the music and produced it. Alex played all the instruments. We have fun working together in the studio and it always sparks us to create other songs – we probably have 5 more songs in the works! This is going to be an awesome year!”

“I created the cover art on my iPad with Pro-Create – I must’ve changed it a dozen times. I had a vision of it in my head when I wrote the song but kept losing myself in it and got too picky about it. The song is so “fantasy” and lyrical and I wanted that “surreal” feeling on the cover.”

“I am honored to have an amazing team behind us – Warren Wyatt – WorldSound, American Artiste, Mark Needham-mixing engineering, and Ingrooves/UMG for distribution.”
