“Jazz School Drop out”
My name Sophia Bastian and I would describe myslef as
a Bluesy Singer with young attitude and a vintage Soul and Reggae infatuation.
I’ve studied as a Jazz Vocal Major at City College and my musical influences are classic Soul, Blues and HipHop.
You can find comments and reviews to the a few demos on ( www.amiestreet.com/sophiabastian) in RECs.
My EPK is on:
Over the course of last year I’ve been showcasing my music at numerous places:
I had a residency at Manhahatta Lounge
shows at DonHills, Sweet Rhythm — “James Brown Tribute” ,the Nuyorican Poets Cafe , Club 205, , and Stephen’sTalkhouse in Amagansett.
I’ve been featured twice in the “Eclectic ride” line up at DROM in the past two months.
” Sophia Bastian might be one of the most promising young talents out there( …)
Beyond the general enticement of a young singer with Jazz reference and
a lush voice, Ms.Bastian manages to deliver herself as an original artist:
Her stage presence is luminious and her songs transcend wit and soul.
I haven’t heard a female singer do reggae like this… made me dance !
I stumbled in on one of her gigs and was captivated. “
