Harmony Woods

Pioneered by 18-year-old songwriter Sofia Verbilla, Harmony Woods explores relationships with a perspective that feels years beyond her age. Inspired by artists like Julien Baker, Mitski, and Paramore, Verbilla writes songs that build impressively compelling stories with the use of recurring lyrical and sonic motifs. Her consistent ability to craft a catchy hook comes at no sacrifice to her knack for unpacking visceral emotions with wit and heart. Following last year’s acclaimed debut of their LP “Nothing Special,” Harmony Woods has honed their live sound through touring, consistent local support slots, and the addition of musicians Chance Halter (lead guitar) and Hank Byerly (bass). Now crafting her second full-length record, Verbilla is demonstrating a staying power that is both undeniable and wildly exciting to witness.
