Soko - Musician, Actress, Fervent French Woman - in Love with "Telling Stories"

Stéphanie Sokolinski, better known as Soko, is a 27-year-old actress and musician who's steadily garnered accolades and critical praise for both facets of her work.

Immortalized on the screen in Alice Winocour's impeccable historical drama Augustine, SoKo's 2012 album I Thought I Was an Alien also shot to fame thanks to the viral sensation of Wren Studio's "First Kiss" video, which starred strangers kissing.

Currently on tour supporting Foster the People, Soko is an unassuming French woman, artistically driven and still in awe of the worlds that surround her. We here at Crossfade had a chance to speak with Soko about music, film, and Gallic passion.
