Get Online Ticket
Based in Troy, NY, pianist/keyboardist Sophia Subbayya Vastek defies easy categorization. Moving between musical worlds, she has been described as “a wonder” and “audacious” (Inactuelles), and as performing with “passion and profound tenderness” (Second Inversion) and “serene strokes and lyrical beauty” (Brooklyn Rail). With the piano as her foundation, Sophia’s music-making draws on ambient/electronic music as well as her classical background. Her debut album “Histories” was released on innova Recordings in 2017, produced by multiple Grammy-winning engineer Adam Abeshouse. She has since released the EP “Lili”, as well as several recordings spanning genres in collaboration with her partner Sam Torres. She is a co-founder of Organ Colossal, a nonprofit that produces and curates musical events with the aim of supporting local musicians. She is also one half of Tilted Arc, a synth and piano-based electronic duo. Sophia has performed internationally across three continents, as well as extensively in the northeastern United States.
