Sofia St. Jean
From the words she selects to the notes and chords she plays, the New York-based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer, and engineer Sofia St. Jean has dedicated the greater part of her life to mastering the art form of songwriting.
Sofia grew up in the suburbs of Clarksburg, Maryland, where she would begin producing music in her early teens. As an individual with eclectic taste and an open mind, she immersed herself in music from all over the world. She attributes this to her Haitian heritage and has always felt at home in a variety of genres. Self-dubbed as ‘wavy music’, Sofia goes with the flow and lets her intuition guide her when creating a song. Above all, her goal with her music is to evoke and awaken the deepest, rawest emotions buried inside; often touching on themes of finding peace and introspection. For Sofia, music is more than what meets the ears. It’s a safe space and a vehicle for spreading positivity and helping those who need it. It’s her truest form of expression and her oldest friend.
A sound that feels undeniably special, Sofia St. Jean’s emotive voice is a celestial delight combining R&B, indie and Haitian sensibilities – a tone that feels both new and old at the same time in the best way possible.
