Music is a way of personal expression; it is an outlet used by artists to genuinely describe how they are feeling, allowing them to tell their stories in a creative way. Rising singer-songwriter Sophie Pecora was always a quiet girl growing up, and she often found it hard to express herself to others.
“I felt very insecure when trying to make friends,” expressed the teenage songstress. “So I started posting YouTube videos because I really wanted to relate to people and express my feelings.” Little did she know that this was the start of a successful musical career.
Sophie Pecora began developing her passion for music at the age of seven. She would often rap and sing in front of the mirror and just enjoy herself through the power of song. Her passion for her craft has taken her so far in the music industry. Coupled with her remarkable musical talents, Sophie has captivated a worldwide audience with her unique poetry-rap style of pop music.
Through the years, Sophie Pecora has written over 100 songs. She also plays multiple instruments such as the guitar, piano, and drums, so she practically makes most of her music herself.
In November 2020, she released her debut EP entitled Raise the Bar, which continues to dominate major streaming platforms to this day. Her second EP entitled Wildflower released on August 18, 2021 which has over 2 million streams to date.
Sophie is most proud of her Wildflower EP stating, “Topics on mental health are hard to talk about, and the songs on this EP do just that. This EP is my way of sending love and hope to as many people as possible. I end the EP with an uplifting song called ‘Wildflower,’ which I named the EP after to remind people that although life can be hard, to always remember that nothing lasts forever and you are strong enough to get through anything.”
From her humble beginnings as a YouTube artist posting her own songs on her channel, Sophie Pecora gained the limelight when she won the Golden Buzzer from Brad Paisley on America’s Got Talent, Season 14. She sang her original song “Misfits” on the show, a song that is an anthem for all the misfits of the world.

Her music and songwriting is a vehicle for her genuine personality to shine through, inspiring other people to reach for their dreams and be true to themselves. Her main goal with her music is for people to remain hopeful and know that they are not alone.

The video went viral with over 156 million views today. The viral video was also nominated for a 2020 Webby Award.
