Kind of can’t believe this happened. Hey, all you have to do is ask.

The power of such can be cosmically life-altering.

Proud I picked up on the gift of gab and chutzpah from my amazing mother.

Gratitude abounds.

What a glorious evening of pulling tunes out of the vault. So stupendous. I am a lucky someoneso, indeed. Endless gratitude to Tommy Barbarella for dealing with me.

Be sure to see us again at Crooner’s on Saturday, July 13… with an extremely special guest. STAY TUNED.

Interview on KBEM Jazz 88

Dunsmore - 4.27 - Tan and Soph

What an absolute pleasure to chat with Emily Reese this morning on our beloved Twin Cities Jazz Station, Jazz 88. The KBEM family has been extremely kind and supportive of Tanner’s and my local careers as we’ve come up around these parts. To say we’re thankful is a vast understatement and we are very proud to be a part of our stellar community of musicians.

I was just loungin’ around last Saturday & my good buddy, Mark Mallman, called me up to sing Lennon’s “Imagine” at The Icehouse. What an honor. Feeling so blessed to have such talented & thoughtful friends.

“Sophia has everything a singer could want: soul, versatility and comfort in a number of musical settings and styles, a marvelous set of ears, unique style, and a visceral love of music and performance. Whether she’s belting or crooning, she breaks hearts.” Adam Levy, guitarist, singer/songwriter for The Honeydogs

“There’s a charming girlish innocence and coquettish soulfulness to this young singer’s rendering of jazz standards.” Jon Bream, Star Tribune

“One simply enjoys the expressive, emotional, yielding, welcoming, accepting, and enduring quality which Sophia delivers vocally to nudge our musical sensibilities in a strong and viable manner.” George W. Carroll, NiteLifeExchange.com

“Sophia Shorai has one of the sweetest voices…Not many others could hit her perfectly girlish, almost childish tone…” Annie D’Souza, MetroMix Mpls

“There’s a halo around her voice. She’s one of the most naturally gifted singers I’ve ever heard.” Daniel Eikmeier, Artist & Media Relations, Dakota Jazz Club
