Reggae’s newcomer Sophia Squire, has promised to step up her search for a place in the music business. And, although she recently concluded an Atlanta tour, the singer believes there is a lot more room for improvement.
Squire has been impressive since she became a solo artiste in 2006, after she left reggae group Black Sylk, in which she spent two years. But with the music industry being male dominated, the singer knows it would take something special for her to gain the popularity she solely desires.
“I think I’m different from other artistes in the business. I mean, I will touch a certain beat that some singers might avoid, and then my message is of a variety. So adding those is something I believe will work,” said Squire.
Squire said she has always had the love for music, and after a significant rise of female artistes in recent years, she is now convinced that her time could come sooner than expected.
There is enough confidence in her at the moment, as she has now released another stimulating track titled, What We Gonna Do. “They are uplifting tracks,” she said of the song and others like A Love Like This and Baby I Love You, which features Lutan Fyah.
After the release of her best studio effort to date, Ra-ta-ta-ta-tat, she calmly admitted that the balance between maintaining a dominant presence and to continue providing the right entertainment would be very difficult to sustain.
Squire recently came from an American tour, where she toured four of the country’s major cities to promote her music. She has also performed on several local shows such as Manchester Fiesta, Ron Muschett’s Miss Whitehorse show and the most recent Reggae Sumfest.
