It’s not often I find an artist I want to stick on repeat. Enter Sofia B. The London based singer-songwriter has quickly hooked me in, and it isn’t just her kaleidoscopic cover of Years & Years’ ‘King’ that has made her music lodge itself in my mind.
Her EP ‘In The City’ was released on Montiel Records in 2015, to which she told Lesbian.com of her creative process:
“It all started when I was living and working in NYC and had gone through a pretty horrendous breakup. For me it always starts with a lyric, story or emotion and then I start improvising over chords until I find something that sticks. Some of the songs I wrote to and from work, mostly writing lyrics on my phone and then recording videos of myself, so I wouldn’t forget what I came up with!”
Her second single, ‘Soldiers’, taken from ‘In The City’ was inspired by her best friend and fellow Crohn’s buddy who convinced her to book a flight to New Orleans for a joint adventure.
