Sophia Dias recording debut album in Jamaica
Chicago-based recording artiste Sophia Dias has already hit the ground running in Jamaica, recording her first-ever album called Bulletproof, which is set for an April 2022 release.
Recently, the gourmet chef, fashion designer, journalist, author and philanthropist arrived on the island, which she considers her second home, and has already laid down lyrics for the eight-track project alongside talented producer and musician, Clive Hunt.
For Dias, a novice to being a recording artiste, recording and producing Bulletproof is second nature.
"This album is based on my life experiences. All lyrics are factual, I just decided to keep it real and not sugarcoat anything. It makes the project raw and relatable because others go through similar experiences," Dias explained. Last year, she visited Jamaica and recorded the first single, Psalm 23, with Hunt. That working relationship prompted her to bring him on board for the full project.
"Recording Psalm 23 was a dream come through and I believe it touched so many lives, receiving a lot of support from across the globe. I look forward to working with Clive and the team again, because we have the right chemistry to fully develop the album. Clive Hunt has the ability to think out of the box," Dias added.
Dias has also recently launched her Dias Foundation, gathering all her volunteering experiences from childhood to adulthood to assist the most-impoverished children worldwide. Currently, the foundation is working on plans to build an elementary school in the Ivory Coast.
