Auster has announced a special performance at NYC's Rockwood Music

The thundering drums and ringing guitars on the track underscore Sophie's visceral vocal and heart-wrenching lyrics. The track is the first taste of the transfixing sound she has created.
released her first album when she was 16. The album was collaboration with Brooklyn-based musicians One Ring Zero. She drew lyrical inspiration from her father's (author Paul Auster) English translations of French surrealist poems. The album was highly acclaimed in France and quickly found an audience throughout Europe.
Following that album, she met writer/musician Barry Reynolds who has worked with Rufus Wainright, Marianne Faithful, Antony & the Johnsons and Grace
Jones and began collaborating on material. The performance at the Rockwood will be the first glimpse of crafting the daring and soulful sound of the forthcoming album for the past few years. Following multiple packed performances, it will also mark the final time she plays Rockwood as she moves into bigger venues.
