Sophie Harton a singer, songwriter and guitar player hails from Wilmington, North Carolina and is currently working on breaking into the Virginia Beach/Norfolk music scene. She was a member of Catawba College’s Artist Development program. Though primarily a rock artist who wants to create a psychedelic hard rock fusion in the tradition of bands like Led Zeppelin and T-Rex, a listener can also hear elements of blues, folk and country in the mix. While she considers rock her primary genre Harton states, “The best bands are always the ones like Led Zeppelin, The Beatles or The White Stripes who you would describe as rock but always manage to incorporate other styles within their music.”
Harton has several goals to become fully active in her new location. Among them are writing new songs, working on her guitar playing skills and even trying to write music on piano which she hopes will help broaden her musical palate. However, she considers her most challenging goal finding a band. Until then, she continues to seek out new songs, styles, and performance opportunities.
