Podcast 463: Sofia Wolfson

Meet Sofia Wolfson, a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, writer, and Fretboard Journal contributor who just released an incredible album called Imposing on a Hometown. This project features a bunch of former Fretboard Journal subjects and contributors, including Meg Duffy of Hand Habits, Mason Stoops, and Harrison Whitford. Mostly though, it’s a collection of great songs by an incredibly talented guitar fanatic.

During our chat, we talk about growing up in LA (and the unique venues that helped shape Sofia’s music community), the beauty of the Gibson J-45, working at LA’s famed Old Style Guitar Shop (where Reuben Cox famously makes rubber bridge guitar mods and started a mini-movement), the making of Imposing, the influence of Margaret Glaspy and so much more. We also talk about Sofia’s soon-to-be-published interview with Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker in the Fretboard Journal.



Give Imposing on a Hometown a listen and then sit back and hear the story behind it here. It’s a good one.
