Jazz & Pop Vocals
A singer with equal parts heart, charm and individuality, Shorai has been a mainstay on the Minneapolis Jazz scene for the past 10+ years. With five self-released albums under her belt, she mixes old classics, modern revivals and her own pop gems with ease and soul. Shorai has collaborated with many of the Midwest’s finest and most celebrated musicians and has garnered international vocal recognition through commercials, televisions shows and films.
“There’s been buzz about Sophia Shorai for some time. I think I heard Leigh Kamman rave about her a while back on his radio show The Jazz Image, and Tanner Taylor wants to record with her, and she’s versatile, singing jazz standards and pop tunes and Latin classics … I like Shorai’s voice a lot. It’s very pretty, sometimes little-girl, sometimes breathy, sometimes tough, reminiscent of Stacey Kent but not derivative.” – Pamela Espeland, Bebopified
