Maija Sofia @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2022
In 2019 Maija Sofia’s debut LP Bath Time announced the arrival of a supremely talented song writer whose deft lyricism and storytelling prowess set her apart.
Infused with an atmosphere of nocturnal intimacy, these timeless songs juxtaposed stories of real women – from Bridget Cleary to Edie Sedgwick – with tales of blossoming romance and sexual violence. Bath Time garnered widespread praise and a nomination for Album of the Year at the Choice Music Awards. Sofia’s sound is constantly evolving, invoking comparisons with Cate Le Bon, Shirley Collins and Kate Bush, and this gig, backed by a full band, is the perfect opportunity to catch a singular talent as she breaks new ground.
