Sophia Roth ‘22: “Between Two Worlds”

Published By Duke Arts / published on: February 11, 2021

Sophia Roth '22 shares her first original single written during the winter break contemplating what it means to be in a place during the pandemic.

Part of our “Art and Artists are Essential” collection and invitation.

“I started writing music over winter break from home. I met Robbie Rosen, a producer and American Idol finalist, who helped me write original songs for the first time!

This is a song about being stuck between two places, and I think every Duke student has felt this in some capacity, especially during the pandemic. We were back in our hometowns for longer than we are used to, and many of us are questioning where we feel most at home.

I feel really grateful that with today’s technology I was still able to create music and collaborate, even from my childhood bedroom.”
