Sophia Bromberg

Sophia Bromberg may be a name you’re quickly becoming familiar with. She recently wrapped up Season 21 of NBC’s The Voice (team Ariana).

Sophia Bromberg grew up in a musical family, learning how to play piano, guitar, and started singing at the age of 5. She says “music cultivates an environment of creative and artistic expression, enabling me to embrace my identity in a unique way.  Whenever I play, I experience an indescribable feeling of joy and peace that I can’t find in any other activity”.

(June 3, 2022) Marin County, California singer Sophia Bromberg was introduced to the world in her auspicious debut on NBC’s The Voice, where she wowed the judges and audience with her versatile skills that belied her young age (16 at the time).

Her newfound fans have been anxiously awaiting her musical recording career, and it is now here in the form of her own composition, “Lately,” an incredibly tasty midtempo that should appeal to both classic R&B heads and younger fans. We know that we were immediately hooked by that voice she brings to the song.

We’re proud to present ”Lately” as our newest First Listen. Check it out below and tell us what you think of this talented new singer.

Being noticed by Billboard’s Editorial Director with only one song uploaded on Soundcloud isn’t an everyday thing for an independent artist, but when you combine a distinctly ethereal and powerful voice with visual lyrics that instantly pull you in — it makes perfect sense. Hailing from Washington, D.C., Naïmah radiates a seemingly effortless approach to her melodies and storytelling which sit in a soundscape of organic and electronic arrangements. Her style pays homage to a long legacy of Black musicians in country, rock, soul, and pop music. Fittingly, she was featured on Beats by Dr. Dre’s “Flowers for Black Women” on Apple Music alongside powerhouse artists like Nina Simone, Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, and Solange. Her music has also been featured in shows like the CW’s “Batwoman” and “Kung Fu”, and on numerous Spotify editorial playlists showcasing pop, indie, and emerging music around the world.

In 2016 she was a winner in the International Songwriting Competition and in 2022 she made the semi-finals. Among a long track record of performances, she has performed for Stevie Wonder and was an invited guest to the White House during President Obama’s administration. 

Her influences range from the classic (Sam Cooke, Fleetwood Mac, Elliott Smith) to the current (Cautious Clay, Japanese Breakfast, Phoebe Bridgers), and her timeless lyrics focus on empowerment, hope, and reflecting on the journey of everyday life.

Lexi Street

In the get down & deep south, just outside Atlanta, Georgia (pronounced Jaw-jah) is music that will make you want to get up... so you can go get a drink, sit back down to relax with a bourbon in your hand. 

Street writes bitter-sweet music about love, intimacy and just being human.   While most of her live acoustic music is steeped in leaves of Americana, jazz, and pop.  

In the studio, she is turning back to her original influence of electronic music with an inescapable southern twist.   Street's latest music project returns to her original love of electronic music. 

 Inspired by some of her favorite artists - Massive Attack, Portishead, Zero 7, the XX, and Rhye.
