Sophia's acoustic combo Ritmo Malanga features a fresh, soulful take on classic boleros, rancheras and Latin American song. “Much of the music I am doing now is the soundtrack to my earliest memories ... it blasted out of my mother’s record player, the neighbor's window and Spanish TV”.

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 actor, live and studio vocalist and voiceover artist. 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), frequently appears with the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra and fronts her own band.
In Fall 2014, Sophia appeared at The Berkeley Repertory Theatre as a featured actor and vocalist in PARTY PEOPLE, an original play about the ambitions and regrets of the 1960s revolutionary groups the Black Panthers and Young Lords, directed by Liesl Tommy and created/produced by the groundbreaking New York theater collective UNIVERSES.
