About


Jenna Sofia is a Finnish singer-songwriter, actor, and dancer based in Finland and NYC, NY. She grew up in a small town, but always felt that the best way to grow as an artist would be to go out into the world. What better way to get inspired than see and experience different cultures, traditions, and ways of living, while being surrounded by countless talented, driven individuals.

Jenna creates through the mediums of acting, singing, composing, writing, and dancing. Her training focuses on music and the performing arts, and she started out as a classical pianist and dancer — training ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance. In elementary school she fell for the theater, and continued her acting studies first in high school and community theater, and now majoring in Visual and Performing Arts at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, NY.


Music


"To me, music has always been a way to find new perspectives, something to relate to, or get inspired by. That's what I wish for listeners to receive from my work as well.
Music can be lighthearted and fun, and you don't always pay attention to the deeper message, but it can also be a very important way to connect and learn.
Ultimately, the reason I make music is that I enjoy it, and it's the perfect way to make an impact and express emotion. Could be something in my own life, something I see or hear in a film, on the street, or in some other artist's song. Inspiration is everywhere if you listen and look for it.

I think it's important to always hold on to what feels true, inspiring, and real when it comes to songwriting.
My process usually starts with the lyrics, 'cause it's easier and more interesting for me to build on a written story. There's an outline of a theme, so I just need to figure out the context. There are endless possibilities, but only one true answer, and that challenge makes it even more fascinating to me.

There's never a right or wrong to music, or any form of art though. I'm just forever intrigued by the way artists continue to portray such amazing stories through music, and if I can do that even in the slightest, it's more than I could ever ask for."
