Sophie Emerson is guitarist, vocalist and primary songwriter in the band The Cavves. The group’s latest release is Venture Out.

“I really, really enjoyed making songs. It was a hobby of mine, starting at a pretty young age. I just called them songs from the beginning even if they were just poems, when I was eight or nine years old. I would write a bunch of songs. They were all really angsty. I would type out them on Word documents on my dad’s computer. I ended up pairing them to music. That grew. I did that all the time. It’s still my favorite hobby. It’s just entertaining seeing how creative you can get with lyrics.”
