Canadian singer/songwriter Sofia Imas debuts with 'Cold'
Sofia Imas is preparing the international release her debut single “Cold” in July 2017 to coincide with her 22nd birthday. The release is accompanied by a wonderful lo-fi video that acts as the perfect foil to the raw and personal nature of the track. Championing a DIY approach, “Cold” was written, produced and recorded by the Canadian singer/songwriter, who also shot the video herself. Sofia is a singer-songwriter from Toronto, Canada who blends raw and emotional lyrics with rhythmic acoustic guitar to produce a compelling and unique sound. Having moved frequently as a child (spreading her time mainly between Russia and Canada), she was exposed to a variety of musical influences and developed an independent and self-reliant streak which today converge in her own work. Now calling the warmer climes of Tel Aviv as her home, she has begun performing in some of the city’s leading festivals and venues and developing her craft.
Her upcoming EP ‘Child Of The East’ is inspired by the sights and sounds of rural Cyprus where she decamped to a sparse village for 2 months in 2017 in order to work on the songs that would form her debut release. The result is an emotionally charged set of songs that take the listener on a uniquely personal journey filled with cinematic imagery and intricate melodies.
