Soccer Mommy is the project of twenty-year-old Sophie Allison, a Nashville native. She cut her teeth in her local DIY scene, going to shows and hanging out with other musicians, though she kept her own songwriting secret. All that changed the summer before Allison left for college. She bought a Tascam digital recorder and began to experiment with production, pushing the quality and craft of her songs to new heights. A buzz began to grow around her Bandcamp recordings, leading to live shows and eventually a record deal, with 2017's critically acclaimed bedroom-recorded compilation Collection. So Allison took the plunge. She quit school, moved back home to Nashville, shifting all her focus to music. She toured with Mitski, Jay Som, Slowdive, and others, and was featured in the New York Times article "Rock's Not Dead, It's Ruled By Women." The bedroom project of Sophie Allison is now a full-time band with a new studio-album debut, Clean. The higher production values play to Allison's strengths, highlighting the maturity and growth of her songwriting. Clean presents Sophie Allison as a singular artist, wise beyond her years, with an emotional authenticity all her own. Clean is a true step forward, a mature, powerful album from an artist just coming into her power.
