Three words I’d use to describe myself are….Lame, long-fingered, wanna-be-punk rock.

My favorite season is….My favorite season is probably winter because I have an excuse to dress like a bum.

I find inspiration from….I find a lot of my inspiration through people like Matty Healy, he’s able to turn tragedies into something beautiful. It gives me hope.

For fun I like to….I go out on adventures a lot, I like to see the world.

Something I hope to accomplish as a musician is….I hope to get my name in lights one day, I hope to make my life a story worth telling.

My favorite songs of all time include….Definitely “Pretty Little Girl” by Blink-182 and “Missing You” by All Time Low.

I’m currently listening to…. “Forest” by Twenty One Pilots. Trying to get my rap game strong.

The first song I wrote was….It was this awful song called “Engine.” I was, like, twelve, and I had no idea how to write at all. The chorus was, “Like an engine, we all blow up.” No, Sophie, no, engines are not supposed to blow up.

One thing I want you to remember while listening to my music is….Good things will always happen.

Something odd I want my fans to know about me is….I started using “Sand” as a last name because even I misspelled my real last name. My old French teacher took off two points for misspelling it more than once. It’s the thought that counts.

My last meal would be….I only eat bagels, to be honest. Is that bad?

I’m absolutely terrified of….Spiders and bugs. My only solution to this problem is to burn down the house. (“Burning Down The House” by The Talking Heads playing in the background, of course.)

In the next six months you should expect….A lot! Going to be doing many more gigs in many more places. I’m going to make my music better too, obviously. Probably a few new hair colors as well.
