Music Choice of the Month 1/2019: Sophiyah E.

by | Jan 3, 2019 | Music Choice of the Month

Sophiyah E. has always been deeply intrigued by the natural beauty and rhythm of life. Born and raised in Detroit, the producer/singer/songwriter inspiration comes from the desire to uplift through frequencies of sound. Her interest in arts began as a child with writing as her gateway of expression. Sophiyah’s love for piano and technology explores house, electronic, R&B and more. Her influences are Sade, Herbie Hancock and Erykah Badu. With pure vocals and dreamy soundscapes she conveys an earthy warmth.

In fall of 2017 she began an on going multi-media social awareness exhibition highlighting artist and the black culture. This birthed her first musical production series “Alignment”, an introspective narrative comprised of interviews and musical arrangements.

In 2018 her own journey began as she was invited to share her gift of music amongst diverse spaces like Detroit’s Music Hall Jazz Café, Cultivate Coffee and Tap House and even joining friends at SXSW music festival.

Sophiyah’s appreciation and respect for the spirit keeps her deeply rooted in her community as well as traveling to encourage individuality,truth and peace. She believes ascension can be achieved through any medium and  anticipates growing through her transparency, practicing dimensions of love.
