Leicester-raised rising star, SOFY, started work on her rapidly growing collection of hip-hop inspired indie-pop bops just last year. Within 6 months of having written her first ever song, the 24-year-old had surpassed over 10,000 other entrants to become a finalist in BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge’s nationwide talent search and was counting the likes of YUNGBLUD, Sam Fender, Arlo Parks, Celeste, and Tom Grennan among her fans.
Upon release of her debut single, ‘Strawberry Milkshake’ in September, the song was listed as Radio 1 Introducing Track of The Week. SOFY was also featured on the Introducing show and received multiple plays on Future Artists with Jack Saunders, along with support from Spotify, Apple, and numerous publications, such as Notion & Wonderland.
SOFY’s incredible live shows have also been quickly earning a reputation – particularly as audiences are introduced to her lightning-fast humour and the utterly infectious energy of her and her band. SOFY’s debut EP, Bored In Colour Pt. 1, (releasing Feb 24th 2022) weaves witty and observational lyrics over vibrant and playful hip-hop inspired beats, exploring themes of 21st Century romance, social media, football, and toxic masculinity.
The 5-track EP marks the first of many expertly crafted songs to come from SOFY in 2022, in what is lined up to be a major breakout year for the prolific songwriter.
