A UNIQUE artist has released a visual and live EP boasting three original tracks and videos.
Sofya Wang has today dropped Sofya Wang Live In The Studio, which features performances recorded at EastWest studios.
The songwriter, raised in Southern California, created the record by singing for eight hours straight and working with producer Kevin Lubrano and recording engineer Wil Aspach.
The unique release includes three original songs, including the bold ‘F**ked in the Head’ and a stunning and fresh take on one of the most famous and beloved Chinese songs of all time, ‘The Moon Represents My Heart’.
Sofya said: “This series was originally inspired by this performance of “The Moon Represents My Heart” that I gave at the Skirball for an Asian American Cultural event.
“It went well and I feel like the look was cool and you know, it’s like important for my people.. cause I gave a twist on it.
“I felt like I had something to say that other people like me might find important and connect to.
“So we decided to give that moment some permanence by making these live videos. And we included some other songs I wrote at that time.”
Sofya, who describes herself as “an artist who also happens to be gender fluid, lesbian, and first-generation Chinese American”, shines with authenticity.
Her tracks blurs gender norms and musical genres and her songs have introspective lyrics that explore personal relationships, sexuality, and self-discovery.
‘Sofya Wang Live in Studio’ is out now.
