Music discovery is all about luck and stumbling upon an artist that you know you will love and respect. For us, that artist is the immensely talented Soleil River Nation. Though still very early in her career, Soleil has blessed us with a sound and style that are refreshingly unique. Her single, “Small Girl in a Big World,” is a perfect introduction to her magic that deserves wider recognition.

Soleil’s voice is just magical, sweet, and innocent. Her wispy vocals float out of the speakers, taking you to a place of childlike delight. Gentle guitar playing is underlaid by shimmering drums, creating a very dreamy pop sound. In this production floats Soleil’s sweet, lilting vocals. The tunes are addictive and positive with a sunshine pop feel that makes it hard not to grin. The lyrics find Soleil pondering on her place in society as a young girl. “I don’t wanna grow up to see the bad things or the sad things or the mad things,” she sings softly in the first line.

The young singer-songwriter, with roots in Manila, Philippines, is only 10 years old with lyrics showing a level of introspection and perspective you don’t often see from such a young artist. You can’t help but feel empowered listening to her young voice expressing wisdom. She plays multiple instruments including piano, guitar, and trumpet. Nation has also been a standout member of prestigious ensembles like the Grammy-winning National Children’s Chorus and the Miami Music Project’s children’s orchestra, where she won “Student of the Year” in 2023. “Small Girl in a Big World” marks a milestone as the first release aided by Nation’s collaborations with nonprofit organizations Young Musicians Unite (YMU) and the Playing for Change Foundation (PFCF).

The single is a moving original composition where Nation shares her observations and experiences as a “Small Girl in a Big World” through lyrical storytelling. We recommend giving “Small Girl in a Big World” a listen. Every note displays her brilliance and her zeal. She has the abilities and desire to become a future superstar.

We are excited to follow Soleil on her musical journey, as we believe this is just the beginning. We are sure Soleil Nation will soon be lighting up the charts; she’s a gem in the rough that deserves to shine brilliantly. Follow Soleil Nation’s online journey. You can find her online to stay up to date on her upcoming releases and performances.
