Sophie is a soulful singer/song writer based in Bristol. She is currently working on a collaborative album with Robbie Boyd and playing gigs in London and Bristol.
Sophie says To sing is such a gift for all, it can be a bridge to connect us with each other at a level beyond borders, beliefs or nationalities, in a place of joy we all know inside.
Robbie Boyd has performed live on ITVs This Morning twice, his songs have been aired regularly on BBC Radio 2 by Graham Norton, Paul O’Grady and Jeremy Vine. He has toured the world, supported the likes of The Kooks, McFly and The Feeling, played at numerous big UK festivals, and been raved about in The Times, Telegraph and Evening Standard.
Robbie says My music comes from my soul. I’ve always been a big observer of life and translating this into songs is a very natural process for me. I find it’s a wonderful way of expressing how I’m feeling without any barriers or filters that I might otherwise do in other forms of communication. For me it’s very important that the type of lyrics I use in my songs are empowering for others and will offer some sort of growth and meaning for people, rather than the usual songs that you hear on the radio (as I used to write) about unrequited love and neediness which don’t really serve anyone other than give the artist an opportunity to vent their unexpressed emotions. There’s a big responsibility to be aware of what we’re saying, especially through our art, as it can have a big impact on those who are receiving it. Ultimately words either lift people up or they pull people down. I have come to realise that my intention with my music, as much as possible, is to do the former.
