Listening Session with Sophia Turner

December 3, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for a relaxing evening with local musician Sophia Turner. $10 at the door.

Sophia Turner is from the small port-side town of Pascagoula, MS. She initially journeyed to Hattiesburg to study physics; four years later, she is now about to graduate with her masters and spends her days teaching astronomy labs and grading papers. Not very rock ‘n’ roll. However, you can find her at a local restaurant at least twice a week playing guitar and singing.

Growing up with two 80s rockers as parents, Sophia aspires to fulfill the dream that her birth ended. Hattiesburg’s love and support for local songwriters encouraged her to get out to open mic nights and single-handedly drove her to be the part-time musician she is now. With the addition of playing music to her Teaching Assistant job, she can now afford internet and to eat beef twice a month.

Most of her inspiration for her original material is pulled from personal experiences with a melancholic lens. More often than not, her songs begin as poems or streams of consciousness that she then molds to a chord progression. She aims to plant bits of her soul in every piece she writes, which makes any admiration or recognition from her audience an overwhelming honor. If you’d like to find her, she hangs out in the local dive bars of Hattiesburg on her off days, or hopping between the Author Shoppe and the Sage Den. Or you can follow her music page – Sophia Turner: This is My Music Page – on Facebook. You can catch her every Wednesday at Trattoria’s Pizzeria and Bar from 6-8pm for Wine Wednesday. Cheers!
