Philly / NYC groove collective Sofra returns with a new single, “Mostly Nowhere”
It’s been about a year since we were introduced to the Philly / NYC collective Sofra, a thirteen-member ensemble fusing jazz, funk, hip-hop, and soul under the musical direction of keyboardist Derin Caglar, a local native. Among those working with him are drummer Noah Silvestry (an occasional photographer for The Key) as well as MC Sterling Duns of the Hardwork Movement crew.
On its latest single, vocalist Olivia Reid and saxophone player Morgan Guerin lead the ensemble on an ethereal, six-minute trip between the dream world and waking life. It’s the first taste of Sofra’s latest project, Head To The Heart, which releases in February. Take a listen to the song below, and find more on the band here.
