Sophia Urista

Sophia was born in Detroit and moved to New York City after graduating from The University of Michigan to pursue acting. She began a musical singing career two years later after winning a karaoke contest. She ambushed the City's blues open mic circuit and thereafter met the legendary Ashford and Simpson, who, in addition to producer Quincy Jones, mentored and encouraged her to pursue writing and recording her blues inspired songs.

Currently, residencies at world renowned Sleep No More at The McKittrick Hotel, Duane Park Restaurant on the Bowery & The Box inspire her to connect with her audiences in unconventional and refreshing ways.

She is the lead singer of NYC rock & roll trio "The VeeVees" with Andrea Belfiore on drums and songwriter Garrett Cillo on guitar and vocals.
