BIOGRAPHY
Born in sunny south-east London in the late 80’s, Sophie’s convinced that she is the reincarnation of a mid-80’s clubber, owning to her penchant for George Michael hair, Le Bon trousers and, of course, the music. Electro-pop, new wave, italo disco and funk. Having had vocal training and piano lessons from about 8 years old, she picked up a rusty old guitar at about twelve, and strummed on it without knowing much about what it could do. Following a few more lessons, a lot of charity gigs and an advert in The Stage, by 17, she was in a manufactured pop-punk girl band called ‘Bloke!’. Unfortunately, the dizzying heights of fame weren’t quite reached, the band’s highest accolade was an Observer Music Monthly interview entitled ‘When Will I Be Famous?’ Leaving the band to concentrate on her studies, Sophie now attends Exeter University in Devon. After a couple of years dipping her toes into the extra curricular delights campus has to offer, she is now in her final year and DJing within the Bangers+Tash collective. Her residency at one of the city’s alternative clubs included playing with Jamboys and Foamo, and has warmed up for Dirty Pretty Things, Rosie and the Goldbug and the Scratch Perverts. Although she feels her happiest with 80’s synths, she is versatile, playing pop for Lemmy Out, the gay night on campus, hip-hop, funk and soul for fuel4life, the urban night in town, electro for houseparties and regular Bangers+Tash nights and a whole bunch of oldies for weddings. Returning to London after completion of her degree, she’s looking to continue playing and promoting.
