Her music is drenched in reverb and atmosphere, but there’s a special spark to Jamieson’s step that her idols lack. We’re going to call it genius. – Drunken Werewolf Magazine
Having begun as a shy solo singer-songwriter, Sophie Jamieson’s project has evolved rapidly into something ambient and haunting. What were once quiet, melancholy folk songs are growing in strength and gaining atmosphere at the hands of her band, to provide one of the most engaging live sets taking place in London.
As hard-working as musicians come, Sophie spent her first year after graduating gigging relentlessly in the capital. The year has brought highlights of radio play on BBC 6Music and BBC Introducing, playing live in session for Amazing Radio, supporting Emily and the Woods, Keston Cobblers Club, Josh Record and a signing to boutique label Folkroom Records. Her debut, ‘Where EP’ was released in June 2013, launched with a sold-out show at The Slaughtered Lamb and has since gained wide praise from blogs and press. Sophie’s diligence has earned her a strong and ever-expanding reputation on the London music scene.
Sophie and her bandmates, Liam Hoflay and Alex Betancourt, continue to grace London venues on a regular basis. Drawing comparisons to the likes to Daughter, Sharon Van Etten and Beach House, the quiet three-piece are constantly pushing their sound, with the promise of yet more compelling material to come.
