Sophie Barker's distinctive and critically acclaimed vocal range, paired with her emotional song-writing skills, have yielded world-wide chart-topping singles, million-selling albums and music collaborations with artists as diverse as David Guetta, Zero 7, Groove Armada, The Egg and Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins).
Having formed her first group at 9 years of age, as a teenager, Sophie went on to write and perform songs with her guitar at venues across the UK. After completing her degree at UCL, she moved beyond her mid-90s record deal with Sony, to join downtempo lounge wizards, Zero 7, and co-wrote their huge hit 'Destiny' with Sia Furler.
Her evocative vocal delivery and charismatic stage presence became an integral part of the Zero 7 sound and live show. Capitalizing on her fan base, she began to release as a solo artist. Her first two albums 'Earthbound'(2005) and'Seagull'(2011)gained support from DJs as varied as Don Letts and Janice Long, earning her radio plays on BBC6musicand Radio 2 among a plethora of other UK stations.
Herlong-awaited 3rd solo album, 'Break the habit'took 4 years to record but sees her more comfortable than ever in her own skin. Undoubtedly her best work to date, the LP effortlessly flows between her upfront live sound, finely-honed from intense touring and appearances with her band at festivals andvenuesacross the UK and USA, and more atmospheric, mood-driven electronica.
