She will be releasing a new EP this fall via Kobalt and is currently collaborating with producers Dylan Brady (The Neighbourhood) and Clayjay.
Sophie also spoke to P&P about the track:
“It’s a bittersweet confessional about isolation and my relationship with feeling impermanent. ‘As long as my heart’s still beating I’m okay’ is a mantra that I tell myself when shit gets rough.”
More from P&P:
Sophie Meiers is an 18-year-old making music in her bedroom in Durango, a small city in southwestern Colorado, but she’s already connecting with people all over the world. It’s a story we’re hearing more and more—if you have the drive, the passion, and an internet connection, you can connect with fellow creatives and build a fan base, even though you may feel stuck in the middle of nowhere.
Sophie is racking up millions of plays online with genre-spanning songs and her collaborative spirit is clear from one look at her SoundCloud page. “If you listen to my discography you will notice that I have many songs that branch across a huge spectrum of genres: hip-hop, r&b, electronic, jazz, indie, and more,” she tells us. “One thing about me as an artist is that I am so obsessed with music as a listener that I am always inspired to try new things and constantly experiment with my ‘sound.’ Through collaborating with so many other people I am always pushed out of my comfort zone, resulting in hybrid genres and sounds that I am really unsure of how to categorize.”
