Drum & Lace, aka Sofia Hultquist, is an Italian composer, performer for film, fashion and media. She is also an avid sustainability advocate, in particular within the garment industry.

Her composition work ranges from writing music for video look-books to creating soundscapes for fashion presentations, to composing for feature-length films, co-scoring the fashion documentary "The First Monday in May" (directed by Andrew Rossi) that opened the Tribeca Film Festival 2016 in NYC and "The Gospel According to Andre" (directed by Kate Novack) that premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in September 2017. 

She also performs her music live, and has performed at venues and galleries in the LA area. Recent performances include ‘Midnight Roses LA’, an audio visual show in support of her latest EP, that included live dancers and an art installation at Nous Tous Gallery in Chinatown LA; and the performance of chamber-ambient piece 'Gardenia', for two cellos, piano, and live electronics/vocals, at The Echo Society VI Family festival that took place in a mansion in Silverlake, Los Angeles. 

She's currently based in Los Angeles, CA where she shares a home studio with her also-composer husband Ian and her two furry friends Fiamma and Lupo.
