“Pears & Honey” by Singer/Songwriter Sophia Eliana out Friday, September 2 Brenda Bonneville, editor September 2, 2022 (Bar Harbor, ME) Singer/songwriter and folk musician Sophia Eliana offers a “stop and smell the flowers” moment with her captivating, energetic, and heart-warming fourth single, “Pears & Honey”. The new indie-folk song – written by Sophia Eliana and produced in collaboration with Maine musician, James Pike – captures the sensations of a tummy full of butterflies. Sophia Eliana’s honey-like vocals paired with James’ integration of slide-guitar, synth, and organ makes for a song as comforting as a home-cooked meal. “Pears & Honey” was inspired by a conversation at Sophia Eliana’s home in Maine. “I overheard a housemate of mine remark that her favorite snack in the morning is honey on toast. This simple, yet nourishing sentiment sparked great inspiration for me. I wanted to find a way to express how I, too, find ways to savor sweetness throughout the day. In the company of tea and a diary over-brimming with ways I radically honor myself, the lyrics of ‘Pears & Honey’ came together like a satisfying puzzle. Pears & Honey is a tender daydream about a longing for intimacy with both myself and a future partner” – Sophia Eliana About Sophia Eliana Sophia Eliana (she/her) is a musician, small business owner, and dancer from Monterey, California currently based in Bar Harbor, Maine.
