Brief History: Influenced by American blues and jazz, Sofie changed her plans from
theater school to pursuing a career as a singer/songwriter. She left Sweden
1987 and settled in Minneapolis, MN, U.S.A. Utilizing her
creative skills, Sofie freelanced as a stylist within the local music
scene, until one of her clients, Sheila Charles, daughter of Ray
Charles, hired her as a back-up singer. – Sofie picked up a variety of
session work throughout the Twin Cities – from Paisley Park Studios to
voice-over commercials and independent films. After a period of
performing in a duo with her former husband, guitarist Preston
Reed, she left Minneapolis and moved to Colorado. Sofie’s lone journey
into a foreign culture generated many experiences, creating an
intriguing, colorful story reflected in her music and performance.
