Sofia is a budding singer-songwriter from Vancouver. With success at several national talent competitions under her belt (Best album at Young Artist Academy, Rising Star at LA Music Critics Award and more), Sofia has been wowing audiences around the world with her powerhouse vocals (boasting an astonishing five octave range) and astonishing natural talent.

Drawing influence from the likes of Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Mariah Carey and more, she writes music with interwoven elements of R&B, Soul, Pop, Gospel and Hip-Hop forming a fresh and unique sound, carrying messages of positivity and empowerment. After two years of artistic discovery and refinement, the pop princess is releasing her most powerful material to date. Having already received radio play and TV coverage in Canada and the USA, the new single, “Smile” is already generating a great buzz around the young artist, with reviewers saying “From the opening chords to the first few notes sang, every moment takes you on a beautiful musical journey”.

Produced by Roy Hamilton III (Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Joe), the track is smooth and uplifting. Warm and jazzy guitars pave the way, driven by an R&B inspired drumbeat and gospel style backing vocals. Sofia’s voice is soulful, emotive and heart warming throughout, delivering her message of positivity with perfection. Sofia’s goal is to change the world with her music and with her latest single she is one leap closer.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
