“Five Minutes With” Pop-Punk singer-songwriter, Sophie Powers

At just 17 years old, Sophie Powers is the bold voice of a new generation. She understands the unique pressures of modern girlhood and uses her experience to write unfiltered, devil-may-care anthems about the ups and downs of being yourself. One minute she’s confident and cool, with the sneering attitude of a punk rock frontwoman, and the next she’s vulnerable and raw, channelling the loneliness of contemporary life in a stirring ballad. Combining the crunchy sound of punk with today’s hip-hop and pop, Powers is the sound of the future.

I’ve barely been able to perform with Covid and being a new artist, but eating a protein bowl, vocal warm ups, and hyping myself up in the mirror would be the last 3 things I’d do before hitting the stage.
