From Brechin All Records (BAR)

Sophia Magallanes - Old Clichés CDOLD CLICHÉS
Sophia Magallanes

Sophia's sweet yet powerful vocals cover a huge vocal and dynamic range, and soar over the catchy melodies, combining elements of folk, bluegrass, jazz and gospel into unmistakable but original Americana.



Dowally's unique and expressive folk sound has been described as "a lovely breath of fresh air". Guitar, fiddle and accordion weave and dance together to create gritty grooves, joyous melodies and soaring harmonies, with improvisational sections that speak from the soul.
