Sophia Fracassi has always turned to music to ride out life’s storms. The Canadian singer and songwriter is just 18 years old, but her voice is calm and confident, indicative of someone who has dedicated her whole life to her art. Her lyrics come from exactly where she is: in the middle of trial and error. On stripped back, evocative songs like “Wish I Never Met You”—her first single since signing to Coalition Music last summer—she offers listeners the same kind of safe haven music has been for her.
Taking inspiration from icons she’s long admired, like Joni Mitchell and Taylor Swift, Sophia wrote about what she knew. The intensity of a first love – and the heartbreak that came with it – helped gift her the perspective she is now repurposing in her music as she broaches adulthood and chases her dreams. “It’s important to realize life can go in many different directions,” she says. “Sometimes plans don’t happen as intended.” After years of these kinds of revelations, she is no longer the little girl craving to emulate her peers, nor the teenager helplessly in love. Sophia Fracassi wants to be fully herself, and for her music to be a vessel for the empathy and empowerment she holds so close to her heart.
