2017 EMERGING ARTIST MUSIC VIDEO SHOWCASE: SELECTION #2 – SOFYA WANG
In September we teamed up with ReverbNation to run an exciting campaign in the hopes of discovering new talent to feature on our blog. For those unfamiliar with ReverbNation, it is an all-in-one platform for indie and DIY artists which gives them the opportunity to grow their exposure and their fanbase at a fraction of the cost of similar services. Thousands of ReverbNation users were given the chance to submit their videos to us in the hopes of being selected as 1 of 3 artists to receive a special feature on our site.
While reviewing submissions we considered the following criteria and applied it to both the music video as well as the music itself: Originality, Creativity, Style, Innovation, Execution.
Today, we are thrilled to present to you our second selection, Chino Hills, California based artist, Sofya Wang.
Sofya Wang is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Classically trained pianist and cellist, Sofya chose to boldly defy her Chinese/American heritage by being an active and vocal member of the LGBT community and publicly amplifying this through her music. Thematically her music explores sexuality, humanity with cheeky melodies and clever lyricism. Her debut single and music video, ‘Boys Aside’, provides some insight into Sofya’s intent on joining the likes of artists such as such as Sia, Madonna, and Lady Gaga, known for redefinining what it means to be an authentic pop artist.
