ABOUT

Hello fellow rockers! My name is Sofija and I'm a committed and enthusiastic musician with almost 20 years experience.

I am self-taught and can play guitar, bass, drums, piano, ukelele, and harmonica, as well as accompanying vocals and harmonies.

While I am multi-instrumented, I feel my true calling is bass. It's been my main focus over the years and the instrument I'm most passionate about. I'm also a pretty good rhythm guitarist too, but bassists are often in short supply so I prefer to fill that role in a band, plus I'm 6'2 lol

I have a large catalog of both finished and unfinished songs that I've composed over the decades, songs of various genres but I definitely lean towards metal. I'm always happy to learn songs you wrote or want to cover and if you want I can teach you mine. I've been using Guitar Pro as my main composing tool since I was a teenager and I'm pretty skilled with all its features and parameters. I also have experience with DAWs including Audacity and Reaper.

My availability is pretty open, the only catch is I can't drive because I have epilepsy but both people I live with can drive and we own a car so I can usually get a drive to and from rehearsals and such.

If your band needs a bassist then I'm your girl. You can get in touch via:
