Austin-based singer-songwriter and comedian Sofia Echegaray is a two-time SemiFinalist at the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest. Her songs range from poignant ("Soon," "Dancing") to zany ("Geek Love"), and cover all points in between. Most recently, her topical blues "Nickel and Dime" -- recorded with Carolyn Wonderland and Shelley King -- has been getting attention and airplay on Folk & Americana stations throughout the country.
Sofia is a triple threat -- writing, singing, and comedy. She has sung for the Austin burlesque troupe Carousel Cabaret, provided backup vocals (Eric Taylor, Idgy Vaughn, Johann Wagner), and her co-write "Dancing" was recently released on the debut CD of Mountain Stage NewSong winner Grace Pettis.
