On June 24th, Argentinean-American singer-songwriter Sophia Angelica released “Eyes That Stare” a tango-house fusion that features Nyke Van Wyk, one of the fastest fiddlers in the U.S.. The song was created in memory of her great-uncle Juan Carlos Rybin, one of the top 5 violinists in the world.
“Eyes That Stare” was produced by Grammy-nominated and Billboard Award winner Napoles and Randy Wisky, and mastered by Grammy-Award winner Bernie Grundman (Prince, Michael Jackson).
With social media followers internationally and a unique bilingual flare, Sophia has now shared three pop singles off her album, including the relatable upbeat “Here I Am” and her Latin tropical song “Que Seria De Mi”.
