Introducing Sofia Claire : Latest Single “Kickin’ Up Stardust” Out Now

Today we are featuring California’s Sofia Claire on the site for the first time. Born and raised on a farm in Redwood City, she is influenced by artists including Lainey Wilson, Cody Johnson, Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton and has a passion for everything cowgirl! Her father taught her all he knew about farming, hunting and animals, while her mother shared her passion for Country music with her daughter… it was always playing in the family home and really shaped Sophia as a Country singer. She is a favourite choice for performing the National Anthem on the rodeo circuit, and in 2021 released her debut single “I Don’t Feel Like Dancing Today” and the follow up, “Always Almost Over You“. This opened the door for new opportunities for writing and performing, she is excited to be ‘back in the saddle again’ with her band for a Summer tour this year and new music.
The latest single “Kickin’ Up Stardust” was released last Friday, 28th February, a catchy, toe-tapper of a song which Sophia co-wrote with multi-award winning songwriter Steve Bogard and Michael Wilkes. Produced by Dr Ford and recorded at the Sound Kitchen in Franklin, Tennessee with studio musicians, the song’s positive message is about keeping your head held high and focusing on bigger and brighter days ahead when you get kicked down.
There’s some really great lyrics which put a smile on my face, among my favourites being “You were just a bright, shiny hunk of fool’s gold. I’m scattering glitter ‘cross this hardwood floor, I’m a honky tonk angel with a neon halo” .

Talking about the release, Sofia says “‘Kickin’ Up Stardust’ is the first song of mine that I co-wrote to be fully recorded and released. I am beyond proud of what we have created and cannot wait to share it with the world. Stardust is a feel-good song about picking yourself up and taking the bull by the horns“. 
To quote co-writer Steve Bogard, “Michael Wilkes and I had both done a bit of background research on Sofia and knew she was a California girl with strong country roots. Since her look and sound were on the more elegant, classy side of Country, we started preliminary work on Michael’s title ‘ Kickin’ Up Stardust’. Sofia arrived and all of us knew right away it was just right for her. Her vocals fit the melody and the groove perfectly and she added all the right touches of feminine metaphor so that we could almost see the video as we wrote the song“.
