There’s a good chance that you’ve never heard the music of Sofia Bolt. The project of LA guitarist Amelie Rousseaux, the French born singer songwriter has an ability to tangle her notes together on “Heart is a Rock” into a weave that’s difficult to shake and easy to enjoy.
The song is tender but not too soft, weighted without feeling heavy. There’s a coordination between the vocals and the guitar that creates a tone that’s spirited but not ghostly. In many ways, it’s above and beyond anything similar, yet it also has th ability to exist in a short time frame. Much like the imagery in the video, the overall feel is that it’s all about the moment and not about looking back. The vocals permeate the words with a grace that compliments the instrumentation in a class that’s by itself.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song is available to stream on all streaming sites or purchased in all digital outlets via Loantaka Records. Sofia Bolt will be on tour tonight in Philadelphia, PA at Johnny Brenda’s until November 18 in Raleigh, NC at Kings. Her complete tour schedule can be accessed here.
