Reggae songstress SophiaBrown has been confirmed for next month's staging of Reggae Sumfest.

Brown, whose song Gimme That Good Love peaked at the top of several video charts here in Jamaica, has seen her career hit a sweet upswing in recent times, charting hits like Love You Pure and Weak for You, both of which were on her debut album Spotlight.

She is now looking forward to adding yet another feather in her cap by being in this year's line-up of what is considered the biggest reggae concert in the world. "I have only missed Sumfest once, in 2006. It has always been my dream to be onstage there and this year I am happy to be there," she said. "2010 has so far been a good year and I am grateful to the members of the Sumfest committee, the fans and the members of the media, who have helped get my music out there. I am looking forward to performing my songs like Gimme That Good Love, Love You Pure, my new song Let It Be Me and others."

The singer was in negotiations to perform at this year's renewal of Sumfest and got confirmation this week. She is down to perform on Saturday night.

This signing for Sumfest is the latest indicator that Brown is on the verge of a major breakout. "I really feel like things are beginning to happen for me," Brown said. "All the hard work is starting to pay off."

Brown's stock has been rising rapidly and demand for her performances has been growing steadily. She is down to perform in Lowe River, Trelawny this Saturday at Izah Bing's concert alongside cultural artistes.

She was also among artistes who are involved in the I Am Jamaica campaign and shot her part in a video being produced under the campaign at the Stephen Stanley Recording Studios on Red Hills Road. - Leighton Levy, Star Writer


Beautiful, Talented and extremely passionate about music would be the best way to
describe the 5ft 3 dynamo vocalist Sophia Brown who is gearing up to release her
debut album "The Spotlight" this April. A full fledged performer by choice Brown has
been in the music business for over a decade and is still as persistent now as she
once was. "I want to be the first female reggae artiste to win the coveted Grammy
Award".
Sophia got her introduction to the world of entertainment as a dancer and with her
exceptional skills in choreography she created dance moves to songs for Dancehall
pioneers Barrington Levy, Little John and Michael Palmer. Her talent as a singer came
to the forefront after a progressive relationship with the Jamaica Tourist Board
developed into her doing live performances on what was then called the Appleton
Estate Tour. Supported by her family and friends Sophia left her St. Elizabeth home in
1988 to live in St. Catherine a short distance away from the music capital of Kingston
Jamaica.
Known to be a very realistic person, Brown began to realize that every journey begins
with a first step, and for her that momentous first step was taken in 1991 when she
recorded her first song. The Outa National produced single "Jig Mi" was a harmonious
track that gave Sophia her very first local listenership on radio. Recognition of her
vocal abilities soon followed and in no time she was off doing big shows performing on
the same stage with top-rated reggae acts such as Shabba Ranks, Lady Patra,
Frankie Paul, Richie Stephens and Doug E. Fresh.
Her next big show was the international festival Reggae Sunsplash in the city of
Montego Bay and with the eyes of the world watching she gave a commanding yet
gracefully set. That same year in 1992 a collaboration with the renowned Mad
Professor from Europe flung open many doors for the singer and landed her recording
projects across the globe starting with the Cayman Islands in 1995 where she voiced
for Strawberry Records which later sold out to CMI Records.
Securing a four-year, four-album deal with CMI Sophia’s accomplishments was soon
cut short when the company crashed shortly after. Nonetheless she stayed focused
and managed to form an alliance called Music Mecka with Dale Dunkley. This
production house was responsible for a host of singles releases during that period,
namely "Baby Tonight" and "Give it Up" both of which enjoyed favorable airplay.
In the years preceding Sophia took to the road and did several tours in and around the
Tri-State area of New York, Arizona and Virginia. She's been on stage with hip hop
greats Snoop Dogg, Lil Kim, and Jah Rule to names a few. Coming back home to
Jamaica during summer 2007 Sophia decided to concentrate on recording and from
this came her biggest single to date. "Love You Pure" was a tasteful Reggae / R&B
track inspired by the everyday problems that affect a typical relationship. "That song
came about one day when I was talking to a friend who was going though a few
challenges in his personal life. Afterward listening I was inspired to write about what
he was going through. It was a beautiful song that in the end captivated allot of hearts
especially those of people going threw difficult times in their love life and now it's like a
Valentine's Day Classic". A video for the single came shortly after and eventually it
climbed its way to the number 3 spot on the E STRIP Video Charts.
2008 ended with Brown forging numerous distribution deals from online music
retailers such as Rhapsody.com, Apple I Tunes and Sprint Music Downloads. Her
second official single "I'm a Rose" which was produced by Cell Block / Music Mecka
took flight as a follow up single to keep fans attentive long enough to complete her
debut album.
2010 now underway Brown was recently nominated for a second consecutive time in
the "Female Artist Of The Year" category at the Excellence In Music & Entertainment
Awards slated for early February. Acknowledging that hard work does pay off Brown is
committed to making her way into the music hall of fame. She recently signed a
distribution deal with the North American based music company Universal Records
who will begin distribution of her next album project due later this year. "The future for
Sophia Brown looks bright (laughs), I believe that I can touch the world with my music.
I feel strongly as an artist my responsibility is to differentiate fact from fiction and also
do my best to bring people together with positive lyrics".

Sophia Brown drops new single, “If You Wanna Love Someone” produced by Cashflow. A stepping stone in the right direction, new and improved sound quality, voice control and production in general, Sophie who seems to have found her way in the hearts of a growing contingent of men locally and internationally is poised to regenerate the female Reggae Lovers Rock segment that was once kept alive by the likes of J.C. Lodge and Dawn Penn. Of course one must appreciate the music of other young, beautiful and almost ‘super talented’ artistes such as Tessanne Chin and Alaine Laughton but Sophia Brown’s persistence will eventually make her a highly recognized artiste in the local Industry. Brown spent the better part of 2009 improving her craft through voice training programs and working with other writers to enhance her personal skills while getting a firm grip of the business side of a career that runs in her blood line. Since then, she has signed off on a major distribution deal with a major US firm and has released songs of vast improvement when compared to other materials released in the past. - Jamaica Star
