On Friday, August 24th at Noon, JPR will broadcast a live session with singer/songwriter Sophia Pfister on Open Air.
Raised in Ashland, Oregon, Sophia Pfister left rural southern Oregon for the artistically fertile landscape of Los Angeles. Her sultry blend of folk and blues, combined with experimental sonic soundscapes has already captured the attention and collaboration of such musical luminaries as California legend Dave Alvin and lap-steel wizard Greg Leisz.
Armed with a self-produced debut EP (which she only produced on high-quality vinyl - and promptly sold out), Pfister has been forging a unique path through the complicated business of music, utilizing a steady stream of music videos (filmed by her talented brother Joseph) to connect to audiences and industry contacts. Her debut full-length album Birdcage is due out in 2018.
