E16: Leaving Mormonism…with a Song
Angela Soffe grew up in the Mormon faith, while living abroad in Southeast Asia. When she came back to America for college, it was culture shock on several levels, even though it was a Mormon school. There she began to discover her love and aptitude for singing. It was music that got her through the painful transition out of her Mormon faith.
She's a songwriter and lead singer of the Angela Soffe Band. Her music has elements of folk, pop, and bluegrass. There's a darkness-to-light message in her music, and her voice is amazing. Her song, “Rocks” won the Great American Songwriting Contest for 2018, and the "Second Wind" album has been nominated for the Independent Music Awards (2018)
In this episode she talks with us about leaving Mormonism and, throughout this episode, we include some of her music.
