It’s okay to be vulnerable, is the core message of Sophia’s recently released debut album Fragile. Walking a tightrope on the border between pop and R&B, the Rotterdam singer-songwriter sets a good example. On ‘Questions’ she sings about her absent father and on ‘Ass Out = Trash Out’ she deals with her fraudulent ex-manager. Although Sophia releases her music on her own, Fragile has already been picked up internationally. A barriers-down, neo-soul effort that tackles everything from heartbreak to family abandonment,’ Paper says of the album.
