A Musical Life: Sophie Emerson

Melissa Mercer

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.”
