Early Years[edit]

Solovay began writing songs on guitar at age nine and released her debut EP, Gone, in 2009, at age fifteen. Its title track, "Gone," won the New York Songwriters Circle "Young Songwriters Award." In July, 2010, Solovay opened for John Mayer and Train on Mayer's "Battle Studies World Tour" in Scranton, Pennsylvania.[1] She released her sophomore EP, Superhuman, in 2012, along with a few singles. During the summer of 2011, Solovay was profiled by The New York Times for being a musician while balancing school work.[2]

In 2016, Solovay graduated from Yale University, where she was an American Studies major with a focus on Visual, Audio, Literary and Performance Culture. She moved back to New York City and released "Rough Draft," in 2017.[3] It was put in rotation on Sirius XM The Pulse's show, "Train Tracks," and added to several Apple Music playlists, including "Future Hits" and "Breaking Pop."
