Ridgefield Playhouse Live Appearances

By Sophie | January 9, 2021

Dearest People of the Light…

Well, we’ve started the year off with a bang, and I hope you are healthy and feel safe. Luckily for me, I’ve been distracted from the news because I’m recording a new song, making a painting with Esther, and I’m thinking about the new show I have coming up! It’s in a real theatre! I will even have at least two musicians with me, I can hardly wait.

Sophie’s Holiday Greeting

By Sophie | December 18, 2020

Dear friends, people of the light,

On this night of the snowy N’oreaster I am thinking of going into hibernation before the New Year, but not before I thank you so much for being with me, reaching out and teaching me that I am so far from being alone and unheard. Thank you for reading my blogs, coming to my shows, watching my videos, buying some merchandise, and interacting on my social media pages.

Hearth and Soul: A Virtual Sophie B. Holiday Concert

By Sophie | December 6, 2020

Dear People of the Light –

I hope you are all well and staying safe.

Holidays are about connections, sharing memories and stories, and taking time to “be” with people who matter to me.  Well, you matter to me, so I’m going to do one more live stream in 2020 from my living room. Let’s kick off the season of light and love, and sail away from the chaotic shores of this year.

Vote 2020: Speaking of Your Mind

By Sophie | October 30, 2020

Hello dear citizens of the light. Speaking one’s mind politically can incite hatred and most certainly will illicit criticism. There is no room for misunderstanding or exploration. Thank goodness, at this time, one only has to listen, learn and choose a candidate that represents one’s hopes on most of the issues that threaten one’s way of life and love.

When I listen to my neighbor, Mary, who survived two years in the Japanese occupied jungles of Mindanao during World War II,

Only Love Virtual Concert

By Sophie | September 2, 2020

Hello dear friends,

As the number of manatees grows within our oceans, I hope your inner life swells with the wealth of your soul. These are turbulent and challenging times, but as I sing in my new song, ‘Love Yourself’: “So much good is born of so much strife.” I’ll be performing that unreleased nugget from my living room September 12, and you can join me!

It’s true, you all responded so positively to my last sold-out livestream concert in May,

Mother’s Day

By Sophie | May 5, 2020

Hello friends…

I hope you are all well and doing okay during these unprecedented times. As we all get accustomed to this new normal, I wanted to let you know I’m still working and creating.

We’ve just posted some new Midwest tour dates for October on my website. Ticket links will go live as the venues begin selling tickets. Keep in mind that as this pandemic continues to play out, things may change,

Earth Day 2020

By Sophie | April 22, 2020

Earth Day, 2020. What a wonderful day to recognize our gracious master and host. Nature embodies our physical home, our spiritual connectedness, our history, our relevance, and our identity.

We are pets of hers, the Earth. She feeds us. We sleep on her floor. But for her, as far as I know, we would not exist. She gives us everything. And also like pets, we don’t always understand her commands, speak her language…We’re sort of lazy,

Dear Friends

By Sophie | April 8, 2020

Dear friends,

I hope you are safe, healthy, and making the most out of this time for inner growth and rest and re-thinking how we put into practice what we want to happen for the rest of our lives. And I’m praying for all of us, as we are one big us, so clear now, how our smallest habits affect everyone and our planet.

I wrote a blog about my feelings during this time,

Our Beloved Friend Dave Burns

By Sophie | April 2, 2020

We lost our beloved friend, father, husband and drummer Dave Burns this week. Funny. Really smart. A consummate musician who shared his gifts easily. My favortite moments with Dave were when we performed ”Sweet Sexy Woman” as a duet – he had a head voice better than Maurice White of Earth, Wind and Fire. I loved turning to him during “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” to whip my shirt on his cymbals and improvise sultry grooves using my hips against his intuitive drumming.

State of Emergence?

By Sophie | March 18, 2020

Hello dearest people of the light. How are you? Right now I would be reading to my daughter, snuggled up in her bed, watching her intelligent fingers speak as she asks questions and draws conclusions, feeling her long feet press against my belly as they did from the inside four years ago. I’d be listening to my son practicing piano, what new song he is learning, because he teaches himself from you tube when he’s bored of his lesson,

Dearest Friends and Earth Creatures…

By Sophie | March 6, 2020

Since the #ThrowbackThursday hash tag is so popular, I’m releasing the official lyric video to my song “The Land, the Sea, and the Sky” from my 2012 album, “The Crossing” today! This follows my first ever official lyric video for my recently released single, “As I Lay Me Down Deux.”

Why choose that particular throwback song for my second lyric video? On April 22, I’ll be performing at the inaugural “Live Climate” Earth Concert at Town Hall in New York City as we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. As you know, environmental activism has always been at the core of my life and art.

Happy Valentine’s Day

I’ll be offering exclusive one-minute (give or take a few seconds) video greetings personalized to your valentine with a brief message from you to them by me — and I’ll even sing a bit of my song “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” for them as well!
