The Nashville-based songwriter Sophie Allison has been playing guitar at age six and writing songs since childhood. From her clear-voiced, hook-laden songs, Allison’s years of experience are evident in her music. Soccer Mommy’s refreshing take on ‘90s-style alternative rock has made her a one-of-a-kind voice in indie music today. She released her debut album Clean after dropping out of school at NYU. Since then, she’s cultivated a loyal fanbase and vibrant live show, touring with indie mainstays like Phoebe Bridgers, Vampire Weekend, and Mitski. In 2022, Soccer Mommy released Sometimes, Forever, her most realized artistic statement yet. The album reached #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
