Sofa City Sweetheart is the music project of multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter J. Lopez. Sounds as if The Kinks and Elliott Smith had a baby.
From UK's Maddog Magazine:
“J. Lopez is a songwriter, performer, producer, and sound engineer and his talents are collectively known as Sofa City Sweetheart. Successfully tapping into that 60’s California pop sound he creates fetching melodies in his songs that retain a tongue-in-cheek edge. Of course, Lopez needed some help to fill out his debut EP. The operatic background vocals, violin, cello, and nicely compressed drums are provided by a company of musicians who make Sofa City Sweetheart sound like a band rather than a one-man effort.”
