“She’s a strong songwriter and stunning singer who brings a vitality to Cohen’s work, and can melt your heart with her own songs as well.” Kelly Nakatsuka, Artistic Director Island Folk Fest, Vancouver Island
From a very young age, Leonard Cohen’s songs have given Sophia Ammann a sense of home. In her career as a singer and songwriter Cohen’s work has always been a great inspiration. Today she offers you her interpretation of some of her favourite Cohen songs as well as a premiere of her solo debut work.
James Bay United is pleased to present Sophia in Victoria during her Vancouver Island Spring 2023 Tour. Tickets are $20, available at the door and via Eventbrite.
Sophia Ammann is a Belgian-based singer with Canadian roots. The past ten years, she’s been active as a front singer of bands Little Dots and Ansatz der Maschine.
