Sophie Stiles is a singer-songwriter and worship leader from Oregon. Marked by her soulful voice and vulnerable lyrics, her songs convey both honesty and truth. Sophie and her band were invited to record Run into the Light at Grammy award-winner Ed Cash’s studio in Nashville. The EP was produced by Ed’s brother Scott Cash. Sophie is a graduate of Seattle Pacific University, and is currently working on her master’s degree in science. She lives in Oregon with her husband and guitarist, Chris Heisner.
“I make music that is honest and true, and it always reflects real things Jesus is doing/has done in my life. I want people to know that God sees them, cares about them, and wants to save them. I had the opportunity to record at Ed Cash’s studio in Nashville and make an EP, and I since then I have played lots of local shows. I was a worship leader at Applegate Christian Fellowship for several years and I love leading people to Jesus’ feet. I’m open to however God wants to use my music.”
