About Raquel Sofía:
A graduate of University of Miami’s prestigious Frost School of Music, Raquel Sofía worked as a backing vocalist for such greats as Shakira and Juanes before taking time to record her own material. Fluent in Spanish, English, and Portuguese, she launched her solo career as an indie artist and appeared on NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert in October 2014. The following year, she released her debut album Te Quiero Los Domingos (I Love You on Sundays), which hit #1 on the iTunes Latino sales chart. Two singles from this album, “Agridulce” (Bittersweet) and “Te Amo Idiota” (I Love You Idiot), have garnered over 9.5 million streams on Spotify. Also in 2015, she wrote and performed for the official Game of Thrones Mixtape. Her arrival as a performer was recognized by the Latin Recording Academy® with her nomination for Best New Artist at the 2015 Latin GRAMMYs®, ceremony where she performed for the first time. In 2016, she served as a guest vocalist on two songs released by Levee Walkers, a supergroup comprising members of Pearl Jam, Guns ‘N’ Roses and Screaming Trees.
In July 2017 Raquel Sofía released her first single,“Sonrisa Vertical”, from her sophomore album. The second single, “La Persona Que No Eres,” was launched in August 2017, a song that was inspired by the unique sounds and style of the 1950’s. She followed up with her nostalgic ballad “Déjalo Ir” in October. In early November she released her emotional single and video “Tenemos Historia”, that tells the story of how friendships change when one falls in love and things can never be the same. She culminated this with the release of her album 2:00 AM, which was fully released in January of this year. She has been living in Mexico for the past few months, growing her career as a singer-songwriter.
