"Featured: January 2014 - Ashley Sofia"

“It is definitely evident that Ashley can sing and write. Her seriously incredible vocal skills, and range, are showcased in every song she releases and her unbelievable songwriting skills are as well.” - Amy Blackwell, Basement Entertainment

"The future of Folk Rock." - Tommy Gibbs, OKWordRevival


"Picture this: Ashley Sofia in The Cafe"

“Ashley put together a record … that will at once be familiar to older folk/rock fans but also touch on today’s sounds. They tell stories (from her heart) about love and heartbreak, the gritty details of life and death, taken from personal experiences and observation and from stories told.” - Andrew Gregory, The Times Union


"CD review: Ashley Sofia's 'Love and Fury'"

“Love and Fury” is just that, put to song. It gets intense, like in “Crazy Heart,” where in a warm, enticing voice she achingly tells, “The best bridge I ever built is the one I just burned down.” Soon “Cowboy” is twangy yet dark, in the melancholy “1973″ she name checks her influences (not that she needed to); in the title track “Love and Fury,” her clever phrasing powers a catchy chorus, while in the searing “Judas,” she proves to be someone you wouldn’t want to cross (never date a songwriter). With a lovely voice, literate lyrics, compelling songs with grace and gravity, plus looking like she stepped out of a page from Rolling Stone circa 1973, Sofia is the real thing. Seek her out. - David Malachowski, The Times Union


"Ashley Sofia- Love and Fury"

I have been waiting for this album for a long time, I can happily say that this is the best album of 2014 so far (and at this stage I have heard quite a few of this year’s new releases)
Ashley Sofia will rise to the height of the greats; LOVE AND FURY is the fuel for her rocket to stardom! - Jonjo Cosgrove, MigMag

Bio

Recently named “the future of Folk Rock,” young artist, Ashley Sofia is making waves. Born and raised in the heart of the Adirondacks, Ashley grew up playing music and writing. When she was just 11 years old, she picked up her father’s guitar and learned everything he was willing to show her. Today, and over 100 songs later, she plays, sings, and writes all of her own music. After dropping her debut album, LOVE AND FURY, in early 2014, she was immediately picked up by major radio stations, blogs, and fans around the world. Over half of the album went on to become radio singles. Her songs "Judas" and "Love and Fury" went on to become two of the most requested songs of the year on Hit Music Station Z97.1.  Without promotion or label support, it was named one of the “Best Records of 2014,” by The Times Union.  Ashley quickly began selling out shows in the Northeast, garnering legions of fans.  Her fresh Folk Rock sound has awoken listeners from her hometown to across the ocean. Known for her ability to sing you into a memory, she makes no apology for her commitment to the lyrics. She says her songs are “poems set to music.” The oldest Folk Rock venue in the United States, the same place Bob Dylan got his start said, “We believe that soon, Ashley Sofia will become a household name.”
