Sofia Lafuente – If You Care
Sofia Lafuente delights with the bittersweet yet stunningly beautiful “If You Care.” The alt-pop singer-songwriter was born in the United States and raised in London by her American father and Spanish mother and, from an early age on, turned to music as a form of escapism. “If You Care” comes from a deeply personal place and lyrically deals with the highly difficult music business and the industry’s unfair expectations, especially for women. While there was a time when Sofia thought of maybe not belonging, she now feels more confident as an artist and says about “If You Care:”
I wrote it about being a woman in the industry but I realised it can also relate to people that are in a relationship with someone who’s not fully in, and what’s helped me, regardless of whether it’s your job or romantic life, is surrounding yourself with people that empower you.
