What made this artist’s set special?

“Our November show took place on a gloomy night. As the entire Bay Area was affected by the Camp Fire that recently devastated the town Paradise and surrounding cities, a smoky overcast and unhealthy air quality warning left us on the brink of canceling the show. But as Sofar artists have a special quality about them, they all agreed the show must go on. With people tired of being cooped up inside, a Sofar show called for the perfect excuse to brave the outside. Masks were provided at the door and every guest was so happy to be in attendance. It reminded me how these shows can shine light and give hope when so much sadness and loss is happening so close to home. There are no other guests in the world like those at a Sofar show. Stereo RV’s “Free” was a perfect song in reminding us that although the struggle is real and though we may want to turn around, we can find the moments to be free of ourselves and all that may be weighing us down.” - Chelsea, Sofar San Jose, CA

Nonku Phiri’s passion for music is undeniable, she constantly strives to push the experience for audiences in auditory realms, and her talents combine electronic music with her beautiful voice to create truly unique music experiences. An enduring force in the South Africa music scene, we have enjoyed her magnificent collaborations with some of the most talented musicians and artists South Africa has to offer.” - Melissa, Sofar Johannesburg

"Sam Florian caught the audience with their magical bedroom pop! Especially with their song “In My Body” which is not only a beautiful duet but also a song about not always feeling comfortable in your own body and the anxiety that can come with that. A truly unforgettable night! Listen and enjoy!" - Anna, Sofar Lund

"Henry Jamison is one of those artists that just wraps you up in their own world. His rich delivery and encapsulating lyrics had us hanging on his every word. We were lucky enough to have Henry perform in a little Alice in Wonderland-inspired 'Mad Hatter's Garden' tucked above an olde sweet shop, and his set was suitably magical." - Adam, Sofar Birmingham
