SOFI K - LoveHate Album Shoot - Behind the Scenes / by Christian O'Grady

14-year-old Sophia Washer - known as Sofi K, is releasing her debut album LoveHate on Friday, November 6th. The concept of the pop album revolves around the idea of mixed emotions and rather eclectic in terms of how each of the songs sound with hints of rock, jazz and blues. Christian O'Grady was called upon to conduct her photo shoot on top of Music Hall Detroit at the 3fifty Terrace for the young female artists new album art. Bryce Harding, who is producing Sofi K's album, was introduced to Christian through Sigal Levine the makeup artist and hair stylist for our shoot. The rooftop terrace was the perfect location giving us the beautiful Detroit skyline as our backdrop.

Thanks to all who contributed and Sofia's sweet mom Linda (who provided water + snacks)!
