The Lofi Sofias
We have been in pre-production for our debut album. Jessica and I wanted to have the album out by now (of course), but with the pandemic, progression is slow. We are all at different levels of comfortability being in the same room together, and we also have different timing regarding vaccinations, but we are making due by rehearsing outdoors and some of us are getting together at Mudshark Recording Studios and doing the preliminary work for us all to be able to work successfully during recording.
Here we are testing tempos in the studio – Ringo, the pug who lives at Mudshark takes scratch tracks very seriously!
The Lofi Sofias has a website – Lofisofias.com
We also have a shop on Threadless. We have one design available so far for t-shirts, mugs, tote bags, beach towels – everything a fan could want next to the actual album or seeing us live!

Not much is open yet for playing live music. However, our rehearsals are becoming quite the spectacle. They tend to happen on Saturday afternoons – between 2 and `4. Neighbors pull up chairs, bring drinks, dance with their kids. It’s understood we are practicing – but it’s been great – because ya know, even though we are working stuff out and fine tuning songs for the album, stepping things up for showmanship is making us work just a little harder, which yields better results.
Also, it’s fun! It’s nice to know that people are enjoying the music – sometimes it’s hard playing to the void otherwise. Feedback really helps.

I am using cardboard to explore the process of making in a new way, of tearing down a structure and repurposing it in a way that pleases me. The ritual of taking apart and rebuilding is soothing when I think of it as a response to the breaking down of our social structures since the pandemic.
There are so many ideas piling up in my mind I can’t see them all clearly. They don’t stop coming, they keep showing up. I had to start somewhere and release the bottleneck. I am letting them come out, one at a time, and laying them down as quickly as possible. This project is both a prelude to more work on canvas, and, an offering of a more affordable alternative to my canvas pieces.
I am resuming this work – check back in soon to see more pieces.
Yoga in the Yard
After a winter break we are back! I am teaching the first class of 2021 – and it happens on the Equinox!
Here’s the announcement as it happened on Facebook:
10:30 – 11:30 am
Tree Park / James Cullen Park – FLAGSTAFF, AZ
(Venmo: cosmic-holly-troy; Paypal: paypal.me/sacredfolly)
For my class on the Equinox – the Sun’s movement into Aries. It’s the astrological new year. Think about some intentions that you would like to fortify, or new intentions since the Winter Solstice. What new dreams have come through in this last month of winter?
This is going to be a short workshop/yoga class with an emphasis on movement and the astrology of Spring!
