April 2021 Happenings


The Lofi Sofias

Stay tuned for live gig announcements – we have some tentative shows coming up in May! In the meantime, we continue to practice and to work on pre-production. 

Founding member, guitarist and singer – Jessica Barnes has re-released some material from one of her previous bands – Echo 3!  Yay! Check it out. I’ll be putting some of my stuff up from the Halfbreeds as well. And of course, at some point, the Lofi Sofias will be out there on the interwebs!

For now enjoy Jessica’s groovy 90s inspired stuff music. So cute!

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!

Latest testimonial

Mother and CatHolly gave me an amazing reading that helped me figure out how to navigate my circumstances at the time, and gave me more confidence and clarity. She told me that in 10 months I would be really happy and have more money, and damn if it isn’t exactly as she said! Holly is very kind and positive, but also isn’t afraid to tell it like she sees it in the cards. She’s deeply knowledgeable about tarot as well as astrology. She helped me so much, I can’t recommend her highly enough! — Gina P., Colorado

Dismantled Project

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

I’m teaching yoga at the Tree Park in Flagstaff 

Here’s the announcement as it happened on Facebook:

Reach for the sun with a spring yoga session at the Tree Park!
Come practice community yoga with your neighbors right here in West Flagstaff! We gather for an hour to engage with yoga, movement, healing and each other in a beautiful outdoor setting – the park! We share instruction between yoga teachers in the community and create a space and time for those interested to come together and create a community of practice and see what evolves! We welcome folks that are new to yoga and experienced practitioners.
