Colorado’s Sophie Meiers has teamed up with producer Clayjay on the new track “Something About You” which is streaming everywhere now. The track is a stand-alone single ahead of her debut EP due this fall via Kobalt.
She recently spoke to Pigeons & Planes about her approach to recording:
“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.”
