Sophie B. Hawkins

Naked Soul

Friday, November 11, 2016
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Legendary songstress Sophie B Hawkins has been tugging at heartstrings for decades with her powerful storytelling, crafting dizzying tunes that idle between the potently forlorn and the strangely comforting. She released her critically acclaimed debut album Tongues and Tails in 1992, including the hit “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover,” which earned her a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.

Sophie has since proven herself a resonant and enduring artist, earning six New York Music awards as well as an ASCAP award for longest running single, “As I Lay Me Down”. With this new collection of songs, Sophie aims to further solidify her place as a storytelling legend, and make her return well worth the wait.
