Today my family and I are off to visit the city I grew up in- Sydney Australia! I will be doing some performances, and spending time with family and friends in the beautiful Aussie summer!
Coming up in January, I’ll be performing back at home in Calgary, Alberta Canada at the Ironwood Stage and Grill with some special guests, and then, I’ll be taking time off for the arrival of baby #2, and will be back on Stage in June!
Recently, I talked to Alberta Prime Time about my current release, The Journey, and the video clip, click here to watch!
I’m really excited to share with you the video for the title track of the album The Journey! Featuring guitarist Pavlo, this video was filmed by Ringtail Films in the Badlands of Alberta, which has some crazy amazing land formations, which they are famous for! Also, to film out there, we stayed in the ghost town of Wayne, population 27 (that’s twenty-seven, no zeros lol!). It was a very different experience, totally unforgettable, with people telling us the hotel was haunted, the history of the town, the very unusually shaped mountains with beautiful cactus flowers… I’ll never forget this place! Thanks Thanks to Ringail Films, and my brilliant makeup team Maison Blu, and Jerome Salon!

So I have renamed this album The Journey= the act of traveling from one place to another, which I felt was more true to what I set out to do artistically. I hope you love it even more, it’s available now!
After a busy year, collaborations, recording, filming, writing, and rehearsing a new ensemble I’m excited to share with you my new group! Click here for dates! Coming up this winter I’ll be performing a few shows, until baby #2 arrives in March! Check out upcoming dates here: https://sophiearmstrong.ca/gigs/ We are planning a tour with my new band!

You know what? Meeting the youngest fans I have is always so much fun, and I got to meet so many of them performing at Southcentre Mall last week! Highlight video-
It’s been a busy month shooting a new music video, (coming soon!). We all traveled to the Badlands for the shoot, and had a fun evening at a very tiny hotel called The Last Chance Saloon….The location was Wayne Alberta, which has a population of only 27 people (!!!!) to shoot, and it was so beautiful! I can’t wait to share it with you!
All my life I have absolutely LOVED to dance! It’s been one of my musical inspirations, and if you’ve seen me perform, you know I can’t keep still! So I had an absolute blast performing with these amazingly talented dancers!
Friday night was an inspiring evening celebrating amazing people who have come to Canada and not only created new lives, but also made a difference in the life of others. It was an honor to perform at the Immigrants of Distinction Awards in Calgary! Airing on Global Television soon!
It’s been crazy busy since I last posted. Getting used to being a mom, practicing my violin at the craziest hours while baby is sleeping… being a mother is a absolute roller coaster ride with loads of learning curves and lots of love getting to know my little guy!
So… I’m getting ready to play my first show since Alexander’s birth, in early March, at an Awards Ceremony. This event is close to my heart, being an immigrant to Canada myself, from Australia, I know it’s not easy to pick up your life and move to another country and make a new life. So I’m excited to support those people who have been selected as doing amazing things in their communities as immigrants. Check it out: TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
