2016 has seen a busy schedule for Sophia, already having performed at Simon Says Festival at De Montfort Hall, the YNot Festival and opening for Americana-UK’s favourite singer songwriter Peter Bruntnell, Sam Outlaw and Dave Wyatt.
Live, Sophia has been performing with her sister Sarah (providing harmony vocals, ukulele and bass guitar) and Andy Jenkinson playing electric guitar and bass, and – on occasion – has employed the talents of one of Jazz FM’s favourite new artists ‘Magic Number’ (a.k.a. Ross Hillard and Tom Wardle).
Her first solo independent release was her five track Paper Thin EP. A collection of heartbreaking and hopeful stories, wrapped up in irresistible tunes. Produced and intricately arranged by band member Andy, who – as Sophia says – “… breathes life into my songs.” Following the e.p. came the release of the wonderfully catchy “Missing Peace” single (and its delightful video!)
