Spotlight Artist Sophia Mina

Here at ICMP we are proud to support our students and alumni and always look forward to sharing their successes.

Every Tuesday we source the best new releases from our community and make them #ICMPSpotlight of the week.

This week we've chosen to shine a light on ICMP Songwriting alumna, Sophia Mina.



Sophia Mina is as a a singer, writer and storyteller of Greek Cypriot & Chinese heritage, as well as one of ICMP's BA (Hons) Songwriting alumni.  Her music, she told us, has helped her in many ways, and was a sort of therapy while she was fighting with eating disorders and anxiety. 

Sophia’s music is rooted in pop and commercial RnB, developing through a great mixture of urban beats and strong melodies. 'Ain't Got Time', she told us, is about a guy that she was interested in.

He made no effort to message me, so I told him 'you say you like me, but you barely text or call me' Then the day after that, my phone was being bombarded with lots of messages and I was in a writing session with my producer... The concept of the song happened really naturally after that.

Sophia Mina is also a mental health advocate, youth ambassador for Tileyard Impact and a young representative of The Roundhouse. 

Keep up to date with Sophia Mina on Facebook and Instagram.

Listen to our Spotlight 2019 Spotify playlist, including 'Ain't Got Time' and more releases by ICMP students/alumni.
