Sid The Cat & Bootleg Theater Present
$12 ADV / $15
Sofia Bolt is the project of French-born guitarist and songwriter Amelie Rousseaux. In early 2017, pent up in Paris and searching for transformation, Rousseaux moved to Los Angeles. Her first few months in LA were a revelation - she found herself surfing every day, reflecting on her relationship, and immersing herself in American culture and music. This shock to the system brought a creative blossom that gave rise to the sweeping, beautiful, honest, and direct debut album Waves, released this past July.
Recorded live in a whirlwind five days by a cast of LA all-stars, Waves is at once casual and tightly constructed, with Rousseaux’s pop melodies leaping and diving over a bed of guitars and roomy drums. The dream team consisted of Van Dyke Parks, Emily Elhaj (Angel Olsen), Marian Lipino (La Luz), Bryant Fox (Miya Folick), and Itai Shapira (Rhye). In the months since the release, Sofia Bolt has toured in both the States and Europe, opening for Sharon van Etten, Interpol, and Stella Donnelly. The band is alive with electric energy, led by Rousseaux’s sharp-edged guitar and shout-along choruses.
