Growing up with musically inclined roots, 18-year-old Sofia Gonzalez Romualdez follows the footsteps of her family as she enters the music industry. Fame is inherent as far as young Sofia’s family is concerned. It would tend to follow if your family name is Gonzalez-Romualdez. But showbiz and political pedigree aside, it is time for Sofia to step into the spotlight.
She has been a Viva Records recording artist for over 2 years, quietly building a music career and debuting with her single “Pikit Mata.” The song figured prominently in the movie “FanGirl FanBoy” (which starred Julian Trono and Ella Cruz).
And now, long after her debut, she comes back with a new sound in “Thinkin’ Of U.”
Passionate about music since she was little, Sofia has ventured out the music industry at a young age. “[Music] was always in me, there was never really a time where it wasn’t my passion. I never really saw myself doing anything else besides music growing up.”
And Sofia has always been into writing. While she had not had the chance to write her own debut, with “Thinkin’ Of U,” she’s not letting the chance go past. Seeming to mature as a songwriter in a short span of time she’s been with working with Viva, she has now crafted a very stylish, very modern R&B tinged pop piece. She has likewise been more comfortable in the recording studio and it shows in the new single, or rather, one can hear it her vocal performance on tape.
Young as she is, she has quite a list of achievements to boot in terms of music. With passion as her stronghold, she aims to be a unique artist in the market. Sofia is all about being herself, saying, “I don’t really write to sell, it defeats the purpose of being an artist. Being yourself is key, it’s better to sound weird than to sound like every other “artist” in the market. We shouldn’t be afraid to express ourselves, that’s the point of being an artist after all.”
This young singer has a lot in store, aiming to release single after single as she goes on a journey of more years in the industry. A gem among other “artists” in the field of Pinoy pop, Sofia is unique in a way that she does what she wants and records the music that she loves. She’s definitely a new breed that her generation would want to listen to. And this is just the start.
