She’s a little bit Nina Simone, a little bit Bob Marley, and a whole lot of talent. I had never heard of Sophia Bastian until earlier today (hey, she’s only been in LA for five weeks, gimme a break), but the self-proclaimed “Jazz School Dropout” knows how to make you take notice. From her vintage sound to her fun yet soulful lyrics, this one-time ballerina from Munich, Germany, keeps it fresh with her own tasteful twist. If reggae married jazz after a bout with the blues, you might get an idea of this lovely lady’s sound.
Friday, April 8th, 8:30pm @ On The Rox at the Roxy, 9009 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069
