Sophie B. Hawkins — platinum-selling international artist; Best New Artist Grammy nominee in 1992; painter; ardent environmentalist; LGBTQ+ and animal rights advocate — is also a Westporter.
And she’s as passionate about our town as anyone I know.
The other day, Sophie and I chatted at the Westport Library — a place she knows well, from performing and recording. It was a wide-ranging, warm conversation.

I was surprised when she commented that she could wear sweatpants and flip flops in Westport and nobody cares — “Where else in the world does that exist?” Maybe she was joking.
Phenomenal interview. Thank you Dan. I met and bought her first CD in 1990 in New York City. She was playing back up for whoever all I remember was her. I played her CD over and over 🎼again happy to have her as a neighbor and looking forward to her newest creations.❤️🤩❤️👩🏼🎤DorothyRobertshaw
I recently saw her in concert out in the LA area. Loved hearing all those songs again.
