“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,

“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



A singer with equal parts heart, charm and individuality, Shorai has been a mainstay on the Minneapolis jazz scene for the past 10+ years.  With five self-released albums under her belt, she mixes old classics, modern revivals and her own pop gems with ease and soul.  Shorai has collaborated with many of the Midwests’ finest and most celebrated musicians and has garnered international vocal recognition through commercials, television shows and films.
