Sophia Black Is Back With A Fire and Doing It On Her Own Sophia Black's Live Performance At Identity L.A. Was Pop Perfection
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… The evening’s musical fare started off with the infectious pop confections of Sophia Black. After dropping a widely lauded, self titled debut EP in 2015, Sophia seemed to slip off the radar a bit. It wasn’t until early 2018 when she resurfaced with the dreamy single “Real Shit” which featured a side artist appearance by KYLE. She would continue to roll out more singles throughout 2018 (“Blessed”, “Fire” & “Move”) and earlier this year dropped some dance remixes of “Move”.
Watching Sophia perform on stage, you would not have been able to tell that she’s been somewhat dormant for the past few years. Her performance was pop-perfection. From her extremely catchy tracks, to her seemingly perfect voice, to her hard hitting and synched choreography, her set had it all. She even got KYLE to drop in to perform “Real Shit” with her (which was fuego, btw).
But what made this performance particularly impressive was that she literally did it all on her own. This young lady went out of pocket to give Identity LA a performance that was as polished as any arena pop concert that I’ve been too.
On her twitter, Sophia explained:
“I really had no management team, no label support, and no tour support but pulled off that show as if I had a label budget. I’m fucking proud of myself. That performance was spectacular. I paid for every rehearsal, talked to every person at the venue, made my own schedule /time line, did my own hair n make up and styled myself + my DANCERS… IMAGINE THE LEVEL WHEN I HAVE A BUDGET.“
I’m imagining it right now, and I’ve got five on tickets to for that show…”
