Whether she is performing live at the legendary Sundance Film Festival or taking the main stage at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) show, alternative soul vocalist and musician, Sophia Dion has only just begun to tap into her true potential. The 16-year-old Utah native, now living in Los Angeles, appeared at Sundance to perform at the world premiere of the Emmy-nominated movie, Girl Rising. The film tells the stories of young girls subjected to child slavery and arranged marriages featured narration by stars like Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez, and Cate Blanchett.
With a sound inspired by the likes of Joss Stone and KT Tunstall, Sophia’s original music explores themes familiar to all teenagers: relationships with parents and friends, dealing with bullies, and moving away from those closest to you. She recorded her first EP,Run Child, Run, in 2016. It was produced by Adrianne “AG” Gonzalez, who has produced music heard on television shows such asGrey’s Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars as well as the Vin Diesel movie, The Last Witch Hunter. In addition to performing live and preparing for a national tour in 2017, Sophia’s own music is being pitched for both television and film licensing.
