Panamanian singer/songwriter, Sofía Valdés, shares her dreamy single, “Little Did I Know,” out now via Warner Records. “Little Did I Know” is the first taste her of upcoming EP, Ventura.
The track is a “bittersweet farewell” and displays the 20-year-old’s warm vocals
“I wrote ‘Little Did I Know’ coming out of a really dark place,” says Valdés. “The song is about a very close person in my life that I am not close to anymore. I’m able to reflect on the past and be relieved I got out of a toxic situation with a toxic person before things got worse.”
Valdés has been preparing for this moment since she picked up a guitar at age 8. Her great-grandfather, was famous Cuban musician, Miguelito Valdés, and her great-great grandmother was Silvia De Grasse, a Panamanian singer who once sang with Louis Armstrong. As a child, Valdés learned to speak English by listening to music. First, it was pop, but soon expanded her tastes to British folk, ’60’s Motown, ’70’s soul, classical, and Bossa Nova.
