Sophia Galaté is a singer, musician, and songwriter from Los Angeles, CA, she’s been singing and performing since she was 6 years old. She spent her university years, studying music in Chicago, the city that influenced so much of her music and ways of life. Prior to her artist debut, Sophia spent a few years managing and working with other artists in the music industry (Soulection, Pell, Durand Bernarr). However, once she emerged as an artist, she knew that this was the path where she could be her most authentic self.
Her music is a blend of the sounds that define her life—R&B, Soul, and Jazz. Sophia pays homage to her biggest influences by taking inspiration from D’Angelo’s soft vocal runs and melodies, and Amy Winehouse’s ability to create timeless music.
Sophia’s music and sound are uniquely hers, and incomparable to any current artist. On her debut EP, SOFIA, she’s created a new neo-soul feeling for her audience to enjoy live and at home. Notably known for her voice—her tone is luscious yet sultry, and her use of runs and harmonies truly show off her skills. Her lyrics are personal and most importantly, relatable to her fans. Her recent single, “Options” is a more upbeat and fun song about exploring the more vulnerable parts of herself. Her music jumps between devastating heartbreak ballads and sing-along self-love anthems. It allows you to wallow in your post-break-up melancholia but also has the power to pull you out of it and onto better things.
One thing that sets her apart is how captivating and confident Sophia is on stage. She has opened for artists such as JoJo, Soulection, Kenyon Dixon, Gene Noble, Son Little, and has performed with artists at Lollapalooza. Additionally, she sold out her first headline shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Brooklyn, and has recently just finished her first west coast tour with Rozzi
