A confident musical voice that is distinctly jazz-based, Sophie writes and performs with an inspirational folk expression, giving us hints of Kirsty McGee, Thea Gilmore, and the wit, sensuality and expressive minimalism of Peggy Lee. Her music has been used on American hit TV series ‘Six Feet Under’ and recorded by various artistes including award winning UK jazz vocalist Liane Carroll and American pianist Louis Durra.

 

 

Her most recent CD ‘Songs’ was included in The Herald’s top 50 albums of 2015. “Nothing short of completely captivating.” FATEA

  Sophie is also a poet and writer and is currently working on a Masters in Creative Writing. Please visit her blog – Sophie’s Words: Spoken, Written and Sung
Alongside her writing and performance career, she is a busy music educator with an extensive private teaching and vocal and songwriting workshop schedule
and has designed a series of greetings cards featuring her landscape photography, lyrics and songs.
