Anna Sofia On Her New “Self Aware Bitch” EP, Influences, Socks, Future Plans & More

A 16-year-old Toronto singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Anna Sofia threads together narrative pop with the scope of a classic 1990s teen flick and the unpredictability of 21st century genre-bending. Dubbed by OnesToWatch as the “bedroom-pop” songstress who “rapidly affirms herself as a new talent to watch — especially in the infancy of her music career,” all signs point to a major international breakthrough for Anna Sofia with her newly-released EP titled Self Aware Bitch.

The Self Aware Bitch sessions were primarily produced by rising producer Jeff Hazin with GRAMMY-nominated producer Frank Dukes (Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Post Malone) lending his talents to the title track. Ultimately a triad of successful singles had set the stage for this six-song EP, following the success of “Meaner Girl,” “I Try” and “No Fun.” Streamed over two million times independently as of 2019, further critical acclaim for Anna Sofia has also come from Lyrical Lemonade and Complex.
