NEW ALBUM: SOPHIA AMATO | GLORIOUS MESS
Once in a while, you hear an artist for the first time and know they have everything to become a big star. London-based emerging talent Sophia Amato is one of those. She just released her brand new EP titled "Glorious Mess via Univeral Music. Sophia creates a unique lyric-driven sound originating from Sicily, uniting pop, R&B, and electronic elements. Spending the last few years between London and New York and inspired by the art and jazz scenes, Sophia blends genres using synths and theatrical themes, poetic words and a sense of tragic romance. Working with writers and producers such as Bastian (Jess Glynne, Jessie Ware), Lapsley, Cut Father (Jamelia Kyle), Dan Caplen (Rudimental, Macklemore) and John Foyle (FKA Twigs), she weaves nostalgic stories. The track "Seven Sad Sins" has a luxurious modern take on soul, jazz and gospel, Seven Sad Sins is a mesmerizing listen, from the first 15 seconds to the beat-driven bridge. Much like Celeste, Arlo Parks and Cleo Sol, Sophie Amato is a unique talent in the contemporary soul music scene, and if not already, one to add to your radar.
