“I like to be funny, have fun and live like tomorrows your last day. As an artist I’m always learning something new everyday and loving the moment.” – Sophia Daniz
SOPHIA DANIZ: Adorkable is a co write with my good friend Jessica Drake Mosher
I was thinking everyone has a dorky side and an adorable side as well so in a sense they can be “Adorkable”.
– What’s the music scene like in your town? Places to go? Tell me about one fun thing you like to do that can be music or non-music related.
I live in a very small town so there is not to much music around but I like to hang at this place with my friends called “go burrito” and I sing there sometimes. I also like to penny board.
-Have you found any challenges that you’ve had to overcome?
instagram filters! i look back and I’m like were was the “after light” app haha.
– Why do you think it’s so hard for indie artists to break into the mainstream big markets and gain a solid fan base?
Honestly these days you have a lot of ways to get a solid fan base like “YouTube” and other social media sights but I don’t really know why its so hard to break.
-Who is your favorite artist? Why do they influence you?
Demi Lovato she’s inspired me since the age of 7 she’s very strong and she sets a good example for young girls like me to stay strong.
– How do you want to be remembered for your music?
I want to be remembered for being myself and setting a good example on this world.
-Do you find that there is to much emphasis on being current and trendy or Is there a balance that you have found helpful in your artistic decisions?
That’s what “Adorkable” is all about simply being yourself and unique.
-Are you religious? Do you believe in fate?
Yes I am religious I believe in fate and I believe if you work really hard for something you’ve always wanted no matter what it is you can achieve it.
-What are you thankful for?
I’m thankful for a supportive family and friends that encourage me to follow my dream I wouldn’t be able to without them I thank them a lot.
-Where do you hope to see yourself in 5 years?
I hope by the time I am 18 in those 5 years I will already be at my goal of going on tour living on the road with my team seeing people scream my name and go home and say wow Sophia is my queen haha that would be awesome. 🙂
-What do you want most and how do you know it will make you happy?
Music is my happiness but what I want is to make my fans happy that will make me smile.
– Have you ever stepped back to look at the bigger picture of who you are and where you fit in this world?
I like to be funny, have fun and live like tomorrows your last day. As an artist I’m always learning something new everyday and loving the moment.
– In your opinion what is the best way for someone to discover what they are good at and or what will make them happy?
In my opinion explore your options is important. Don’t sell yourself short, ask yourself what you really love to do and if it makes you happy then your doing it right.
-How can your life become more rich?
Having your loved ones near by and being around positive people I believe will lead you to the right path.
-Do you feel that there is anything that prevents you from living up to your full potential?
Well there’s always road blocks you just have to focus to overcome them.
–What is your personal definition of success?
To never stop growing as a person. I feel successful every time I accomplish a goal. Then each time I accomplish that goal I start a new goal, success is what we all thrive.
-Do you feel that you have limits to what you can do and achieve?
I feel if you have limits on yourself you can’t live life the way you wanted to live, that’s why I live with no limits except smart choices.
-If heaven exists what’s the first thing you would like to hear god say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
I want him to say “you’ve maid It and your time is here”. I believe that heaven will feel peaceful no pain, no crying, and everything will feel fair and at peace.
Oh, The Places She’ll Go
Written by Jessica Drake Mosher
Sophia has a vision. She has a voice and natural knack for picking up multiple instruments. I’ve worked with Sophia for nine months and have really gotten to know her as an artist and a person. Yes, she’s talented, yes she can belt as high as Jennifer Hudson or play the guitar as fluidly as Taylor Swift, or perform as captivatingly as Demi Lovato. But, aside from all of those extraordinary gifts and results of hard work, what sets Sophia apart from other young, emerging artists is her drive and her vision. While she’s so young, she understands the importance of finding her own way, her own unique sound and message as a recording artist. It is important for her to be Sophia, the first, not anyone else. I throw a song at her to play on piano and by the next week, not only has she gotten what I taught her down, she’s added her own new notes and rhythms. In the recording studio, she brings her own specific perspective on sounds and feel to the production. Sophia writes naturally catchy hooks on her own and is developing her songwriting skills day by day. She is, in my opinion, someone to watch out for in terms of becoming a creative contributor to the music industry. She’s not afraid of the gigs, the people, the rejection, the time or the work. Music is just who she is, and as life experiences and time will provide her with more material, she is the kind of person who will bring honest individuality to the table. Now, wouldn’t that be such a refreshing thing in today’s music?! Right now, we are recording at Hit Music Studios with producer and engineer, Jimm Mosher to put a strong foot out into the radio waves. It will be a culmination of this talented girl’s vision, unique imagination and the vocal and songwriting chops to match. The songs cover the emotional spectrum, from catchy fun and sticking in your head for days to meaningful, innocent questioning about her current stage in life. She is relatable and stays true to herself. And it’s only the beginning.
