Panamanian singer-songwriter Sofía Valdés has returned with her new EP, In Bloom via Warner Records. The bilingual title track, “In Bloom” is accompanied by a visual directed by Satchel Lee, which can be seen now below. Both the video and the EP find Valdés growing and maturing as an artist and young woman through personal relationships and her outlook on life.
Speaking on the new music, Sofia says, “For me, In Bloom means standing your ground and not letting anyone take you away from that moment. I was finding myself while I was writing the songs. I was going through a roller coaster of emotions which in every phase of it I felt like I was changing which I needed in order to pass the page. The song ‘In Bloom’ is a character that I made for myself. Someone I wanted to be like and look up to. This person that’s confident, firm, beautiful and proud.”
Sofia took her career to new heights in 2021, releasing her highly-acclaimed debut album Ventura, earning praise from W Magazine, Interview Magazine, V Magazine, etc. expanding her talents beyond music, she partnered with renowned luxury brand, Chanel, serving as a brand ambassador for their Latin American market and performing a set for NPR “World Cafe” from her home in Panama. She’s since had a successful festival run that included Outside Lands in San Francisco and Lollapolooza in Chicago. At only 20 years old, and already taking the next leap in her career with In Bloom, Sofia is rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
