Socorra @ Taylor Street Night Market

The SJZ Boom Box rolls out to Taylor Street Night Market, presented by Gordon Biersch Brewing Company and Moveable Feast, with headliner Socorra. Every Thursday night from 5-9pm, enjoy street cuisine, live music, makers and breweries coming together in the beautiful Japantown neighborhood.

Socorra is a singer-songwriter based in San Jose. She is a drummer turned guitar player, bringing her blues-driven indie-rock sound to the Bay Area. Suffering from stage fright at a young age, she didn’t start performing in front of people until she was 18 years old when she was recruited to be in an acapella group her freshman year of college. Throughout her college years she explored songwriting and performing more before joining the Peace Corps in Morocco in 2010. During her volunteer service she had opportunities to perform all over Morocco, discovering ways to connect with people through music.

After serving in the Peace Corps, she took an internship at an independent record label where she was more inspired to step out from behind the scenes and put out her own music. She released her EP, Break in 2017 and has opened up for acts like Blues Traveler and Fantastic Negrito. Heavily influenced by everything from Motown and Led Zeppelin to HAIM and Sheryl Crow, she strives to bring soulful performances to every show.
