Born in the Bronx, New York, Sophia cut her teeth as a member of the 90's NYC hard rock outfit Sophia’s Toy with a commanding, snarling stage presence. Named “Best Undiscovered Artist” by VH1, she has collaborated with the likes of Metallica’s Jason Newstead, Psychotica, and Joey Ramone, and performed with an incredible variety of artists from Rod Stewart to Jennifer Hudson to Jefferson Starship.
Sophia is a veteran live and studio vocalist, voiceover artist and actor. Her talents in both English and Spanish have been employed in countless commercials and jingles. Sophia has released two CDs of killer rock & roll, Her Majesty and Revelator, co-written and produced by guitarist Billy White. She often tours as lead vocalist with the legendary Big Brother & The Holding Company, singing the Janis Joplin songbook, and frequently appears with the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra.
