A 20-year-old singer/songwriter born and bred in Panama, Sofia Valdes creates the kind of emotionally honest and beautifully original pop music that could only come from years of exploration. After learning to play guitar at the age of eight and writing her first song at 13, the independent-minded artist sharpened her craft in part by building an eclectic sonic vocabulary informed by everything from folk and bossa nova to '60s Motown and '70s soul. She took charge of her musical education and quickly found her way to formative influences like Bob Dylan, João Gilberto, Stevie Nicks, and Bobby Womack. Later on, she honed her distinct songwriting voice and soon began the process of bringing her debut EP to life.
