Sophia Yau-Weeks is a Bay-Area-based singer-songwriter born and raised in Oakland, CA on Ohlone Land.

Yau-Weeks began songwriting at the very start of the COVID-19 lockdown as a means to understand and process her feelings and emotions. She wrote her first original single “Lasso the Moon” after experiencing the all-too-familiar heartbreak of a pandemic breakup. The single, which released in March of 2022, alludes to the film “It’s a Wonderful Life” where a man promises to lasso and capture the moon for the woman he loves.

Since then, Yau-Weeks has released a second original single “Align” regarding her struggles with anxiety and depression, and currently has a debut EP in the works. Ultimately, the driving force behind Yau-Weeks’ work - the desire to reach and relate to others through her art. She tells stories through song whether that be through poetic lyricism or captivating melodies.
