FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
APRIL 1, 2011 â€“ TORONTO, ON
Sophia â€œSoJayâ€ Jackson, a talented singer/songwriter from Toronto, ON is set to release her debut album later this month that will serve not only to introduce you to her music, but re-introduce you to the soulful sounds of R&B â€“ SoJay is preparing to release her debut album later this month on April 20, 2011 at a release party taking place at Locus144 in Liberty Village, marking new territory in the career of this multi-talented singer-songwriter whose neo-soul brand of music is sure to ignite a new love affair with the genre shared with greats such as Marsha Ambrosius and fellow Canadians Divine Brown and Glenn Lewis. Â SoJay, who lives in Toronto, ON, has put the final touches to the album entitled â€œItâ€™s Time We Officially Meetâ€, and is now preparing for the imminent release that will hopefully build upon her fan base and get her music heard by more people than ever.
The album, which has been several years in the making, has been a labour of true dedication and genuine love of music for SoJay, who intends to lure you into her world with perfected blends of jazz, reggae and pop rock.Â With a collection of never released material, SoJay hopes to emerge as one of Torontoâ€™s most celebrated artists by capturing the attention of new fans, industry personnel and respected colleagues with her thought-provoking lyrics, smooth seductive vocals and live, grassroots delivery.
â€œItâ€™s difficult to express into words how passionate I am about this album. Itâ€™s been an extraordinary experience and I hope listeners will sit back, close their eyes, feel the energy and SMILE because this is why I make music.â€ â€“ SoJay, Canadian singer/songwriter.
â€œHer voice reminds me of an untamed, raw version of Nora Jones…before she went pop.Â Her voice has a raspy edge, clearly soulful, smooth like the calm before the storm, yet powerful like the storm when it arrives.â€ â€“ Christopher Rudder [excerpt from Rouge Magazine December 2010].
