Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Sophia grew up in a family that is heavily influenced by music, and got her start writing and performing in high school. She first gained a following when her covers of songs from the likes of Adele and Amy Winehouse started going viral, but it would be her own writing that would take her to the next level creatively. In 2016, Sophia joined the second season of Song Kites, where her natural song-writing gifts blossomed. Her original song, “Hell”, which has garnered nearly 3 million streams on Spotify is a pared-down piano track, which showcases her lyrical chops and puts her emotionally-charged vocals front and center. 

Since joining the Baramey team in 2020, Sophia has continued her musical evolution, incorporating R&B vibes into her jazz-inflected sound. Drawing on a range of inspirations from Sabrina Claudio to Billie Holiday, Summer Walker to Ella Fitzgerald, Sophia blends and bends genres in ways that have never been heard before in the Cambodian market.
