Hannah Sophia, a Provo local, is expanding the horizons of music by combining both music, art, and videos, in a collaboration to provide an “entire year of music.” After hearing about her project from a friend, I quickly had to know more. As a big fan of the arts, I find the combination of multimedia projects to be quite enthralling.
In an interview, I got to know Hannah Sophia. She graduated from the Commercial Music program at Brigham Young University. When asked about her inspiration for her project she explained she had been writing music since the age of fourteen, and realized that she had accumulated quite the array of songs. The compilation of songs were written over an eight year time period, therefore they entailed a vast span of memories and growth. She couldn’t decide quite how to organize her music, until late one night the idea came to her, she would organize the songs into “seasons.” Hannah Sophia then compiled these songs into four EP’s representing each season of the year; winter, spring, summer, and fall. Along with each of these EP’s, Hannah Sophia has created accompanying art, and other various visual projects.
“I love creativity in all of it’s forms. I have been blessed to be able to express myself through music,words, and art,” says Hannah Sophia, “I really want people to understand that this is me giving them a year, an experience, through music, and art.”
Each of her songs will be released three weeks apart with an entire EP coordinating to the season, released on the Solstice/Equinox of each season.
With a sound of Ingrid Michaelson meets Mindy Gledhill, you won’t want to miss Hannah Sophia’s newest project, “A Year of Music, Art, and Storytelling.”
