Biography

Walk Sophie, conceived as a project by frontman Kevin Grosch and pianist Dan Warner, began (five/four) years ago with simple folk songs. With Noah Mitchell’s shift into the band (two/three) years later, Sophie gained percussion and another guitarist/songwriter experienced on several instruments. The band began booking shows at small venues, packing a hundred people into The Radio Cherokee and began playing regularly at the Hi Pointe. The concerts only grew in attendance, squeezing 150 people or more into the narrow second floor venue month after month. Sophie branched out to the Creepy Crawl, Off Broadway, The Red Sea, and other local venues. Both frontman Kevin Grosch and Noah Mitchell grew phenomenally in their abilities and songwriting, introducing mandolin and bouzouki parts. Dan progressed in his own songwriting, and now plays a driving role in the band. Together with female vocalist Erin Kaltenreider and producer Jason McEntire, they recorded their first full-length album, “Burn It Down,” at Sawhorse Studios in December of 2006. The album has been locally available since February of 2007, and nearly 1000 copies have been sold. Noah introduced violinist Jackson Ramsey into the band, thickening the sound of Sophie’s airy melodies. Incorporating d’jembe, upright bass, mandolin, and bouzouki (a classical Greek instrument), Walk Sophie played in Dallas at The Door and in Milwaukee at The Rave, exploiting their seedling fanbase outside Missouri. With the release of their second album, “Songs for Simple Things,” in the summer of 2007 came more and more recognition, booking shows with Ha Ha Tonka and Lucky Boys Confusion and continually drawing up to 250 fans per show. Their “folky indie” style flaunts inspired lyrics and thoughtful progressions.
