Her Majesty

by Sophia Ramos

NYC's Sophia Ramos has a raging, powerful singing voice straight out of the Headbanger's Ball. Sophia Ramos is everything that a woman in rock could possibly be. Her music rocks, while her voice snarls and seduces, and the total magnetism she commands is

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sophia's spitfire performances have the aura of once-in-a-generation rock & roll happenings, leaving audiences mesmerized and intoxicated.

Conjuring the combined spirits of Hendrix, Mercury and Jagger, Sophia prowls her stage like a groove-crazed sorceress, wielding her astonishing voice like Luke Skywalker's sword. Sophia's talents are not news to her fellow musicians.

She's tough and smart, a showstopper who appeared onstage on the 1996 Lollapalooza tour wearing huge KISS boots and a leather jockstrap filled with lemons, which she tossed into the cheering crowd.

She's attracted a star-studded list of studio and stage collaborators: Jason Newsted of Metallica; Paul Simon; Karl Wallinger; Billy Bragg; Joey Ramone and Psychotica, with whom she appeared as featured vocalist on their main stage Lollapalooza tour with Soundgarden and Rage Against The Machine. On her stunning new CD, "Her Majesty", Sophia confesses loss, struggle, faith and survival with honesty and wisdom.

Indeed, Sophia is the rare composer who has both mastered her craft and tapped the wellspring of universal emotion with sincerity and a mighty dose of brute force. Sophia's impassioned voice - alternately James Brown and Chris Cornell, lyrical insight, and physical charisma empower her infectious melodies.
Her deliverance is nothing short of soul-defining as she breaks traditional barriers of women and of ethnic groups. Sophia is a woman with a heart of gold and a vision of rockn'roll and refuses to be constrained by any predetermined opinions of what she should be doing.
The result is a truly compelling album.

When Gwen Stefani dropped the rock torch, Sophia Ramos was there to snatch it up and run like hell. Ramos is definitely establishing her place in rock and roll royalty with her release “Her Majesty” and proving that the girls can rock just as hard (if not harder) than the boys. She’s also proving that she has plunged deep into the waters of intellectual thinking with songs that make the listener not only recognize her sound but also her thought-provoking lyrics (covering everything from racism to the power of woman). Her ethereal vocals combined with her philosophies ring through on songs such as “Black Madonna,” which ironically has quite a whimsical, California rock sound. My personal favorite on this one would have to be “Esperanza.” This song enticed me with its funky, dirty guitar trips accented by Ramos’ staggered, beautiful vocals. Why Ramos has not been receiving the nationwide attention and radio play that she deserves is beyond me. She is sitting on gold with this one.

Leaves me BREATHLESS!
It absolutely positively doesn't get any better than this! Sophia is ON FIRE! Her rawness and incredible ability to reach inside of you and extract pure passion and energy, is nothing short of superior! Her songs, her lyrics, her sultry, prowling ways; and her voice.... MY GOD.... HER VOICE is practically edible! If Sophia can't make it to the top, knowone else should! This woman's amazing talent and name she be on the lips of everyone & if anyone deserves to be in the utter spotlight... IT'S SOPHIA!

Buy the cd, or listen to a sample song, and you'll be hooked! An addiction I'm thrilled to have! Yes indeed!

The new Queen Of Rock!
Blood, guts, heart and soul. THAT`S the fuel to the firey vocalist Sophia Ramos! This lady has been burnin` up the road coast to coast for a while now, and if the knotheads running MTV/Clear Channels actually KNEW anything about REAL music, she`d be burnin` up the charts and airwaves, too! But I guess a Female Rocker of color whose not an Alanis/Avirl knock-off just doesn`t fit into their scheme of thing. And who cares anyway? We`ve got her, and that`s all that matters! "Her Majesty" [Sophia`s third release] is a 10 track hook-laden affair that runs from rough to smoothe, hot to cool, dirty to sweet. The lead-off tune, "Black Madonna", really sets the tone for the rest of the disc. Sophia radiates power and passion, both in her vocal performance and in her songwriting; check out "What I Do Know", "Kill Your Pain", "Torn Down" and "Girlfriend's Ghost" for proof. Just TRY to get these songs outta yer head! And Sophia has surrounded hereself with some damn fine musicians as well, complimenting her voice to a "T". I think this lady could sing the phone book and it would sound killer! God knows WHY she`s not on a major label, but maybe if all who read this woud go and BUY the album [details at the links below], that just MIGHT happen, now wouldn`t it? So pick this one up, and bow to "Her Majesty", Sophia Ramos, the new Queen Of Rock!

Best new artist to come forward in a long time!
I can't stop playing Sophia Ramos' CD! This is the freshest CD to come out in quite a while and one you won't be able to stop listening to. The hard rockin' grooves, haunting lyrics, and incredible vocals will have you holding up your lighter by the second song. I'm already anxiously awaiting her next release.

Music Industry needs to wake up and stop tellin' a woman she can't sing rock-n-roll just because she's Puerto Rican. This CD is the shiz-nit!

Janis Joplin Of Our Times...
I saw Sophia in Central Park: Janis Joplin tribute...
Yes it was covered in New York times. Yes, she was pronounced a show stopper! But wait, - there was Nina Simone's daughter there as well. And yes, many other artists. But, my God, - Sophia, - I'm still speechless. I f*cking cried. You're UN-BELIEVABLE! There's no one out there even close to your power! You oughta record just a Janis CD. You're our JANIS! I stand in awe!!!

I've got friends in Bronx. They said you had a band, - Sophia's Toy. Would love to have a compilation of ALL OF YOUR songs!!!

Maybe I should become your manager :) and get you the recognition you deserve.

Perhaps, touring Europe may help?
