Australian singer/songwriter Sophia Whitney shares a collection of songs reflecting gratitude for community, the contentment that comes with allowing oneself space to create. Whitney says “Returning to live on Gunditjmara country after living in the city for many years gifted me time, space and renewed energy to work on half written songs and give them the attention they deserved.”
Whitney’s music place on a spectrum of experience between introspection and expression; a collection of sound and imagery that finds solace in space, but returns to the warmth of company and the happiness of connection through artistic collaboration. On her first full length release Whitney strikes a powerful balance between an immense yet subtle form of soulful pop and poetic alt-country that evokes names like Angel Olsen & Gillian Welch.
“Pretty mesmerising, I love Sophia’s voice, everything seems to fall into place, and the songs drift along. Fans of Julia Jacklin will eat this one up!” – Triple J Unearthed
Sophia’s songwriting provides an emotional truth that resonates throughout the record and could be one reason why listeners often comment that it is like reminiscing with an old friend.
