Sophie B. Hawkins Debuts at The Acorn!

Monday, Oct. 12 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)

Indie/AltSinger-Songwriter

Vulnerability underscored by grit, strength sealed by fire, mood driven by melody, reconciliation that turns to inspiration, this is the territory of Sophie B. Hawkins’ remarkable sixth album, which is at once the most directly personal, musically transporting and defiantly raw work yet from the Grammy nominated singer/songwriter.

Since her instantaneous 1992 breakthrough with the indelible hit single “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” and her acclaimed debut album, "Tongues and Tails," Hawkins has proved to be an enduring artist with a fierce commitment to evolving. Despite the growth in her music and fame, she has remained steadfastly true to her own authentic history and experience.

Her first album, "Tongues and Tails," is full of primal, fiery pop and was an immediate success. This album earned her a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist.” Hawkins followed that with "Whaler," which featured the smash hit ballad, “As I Lay Me Down." This song remains as the longest-running hit single in the Billboard charts in American history. The album, as equally gutsy as her first, was an atmospheric departure that sealed her rising reputation for musical breadth and lyrical depth.

Box office opens at 4 PM ET
Starts 8:00pm, doors open 7:00pm
