One of last year’s most exciting independent artists to emerge, New Jersey native Sof has begun forging a unique path in the pop music realm. After her emotional cover of Britney Spears’ ‘Criminal’ went viral on YouTube, Sof began drawing the attention of listeners across the globe, receiving millions of views and hundreds of thousands of shares on TikTok. Her debut single, ‘Inertia,’ released in November of 2019, garnered praise from critics and fans with NJ.com calling the track “infectious” and pinning her as one of “31 New Jersey Bands You Need to Hear in 2020.” With a “knack for addictive songwriting,” rich vocals, and an enigmatic aura surrounding her, Sof is an undeniable talent.
In 2020, in lieu of COVID-19 and limited resources, the singer began learning how to record and produce on her own. In collaboration with her boyfriend and Philadelphia-based producer, Tyler Toomey, she recorded, arranged, co-wrote, and co-produced her follow-up single, ‘Bloom,’ in her childhood bedroom during quarantine. With plans to release more music this year, Sof is gradually shedding her layers and inviting us to watch her bloom.
