Tickets are now available for Sophie Kilburn at The Grace.
Sophie Kilburn is a Derbyshire born singer, songwriter who merges melancholic pop with fiery indie-angst. Her bold sonic fusion of old-school rocker & modern pop warrior is inspired by Alt-Pop heroes like Haim, Phoebe Bridgers & Alanis Morissette, with a heavy emphasis on lyrics & storytelling.
From releasing “alt-indie banger” (Fame Magazine) Indigo Fever and “driving pop-anthem” (Complex UK) Broke, Sophie has received global recognition as an “undeniable songwriting talent” (XS Noize), as well as backing from BBC Introducing and Mahogany Sessions. Sophie soon followed with her stripped back & intimate single Call Home, premiering in Clash as “something special”, leading to her playing Amazing Radio’s virtual CMJ Festival alongside Declan McKenna, Beabadoobee and Wolf Alice.
Last year, Sophie made waves releasing her debut EP My Room Made Public, digging emotionally deep to question how much of our lives should we really share? The project included driving indie-pop banger ‘Movements’ that featured on Flux FM (Berlin) New Music Radar Show and Get In Her Ears (Hoxton Radio) as their ‘one to watch’.
My Room Made Public received high praise across the board from being backed by Amazing Radio UK and US, to being called ‘truly a one to watch’ by 1883 and Lock Magazine alongside Rag n Bone Man and Charlie XCX, to BBC Introducing, naming Ruthless and I’m In Love With My Therapist as ‘Track of the Week’ by the East Midlands Team, resulting in a “mesmerising” live session for BBC Radio Derby. Renowned BBC DJ Presenter, Dean Jackson, has hailed Sophie ‘as an artist to get excited about’, with Right Chord Music crowning her as their ‘Breakthrough Act of 2021.
This year, Sophie returns with her EP Not Bitter Just Bored; a collection of songs being released throughout 2022, going through the stages of a heartache recovery from unconsciously accepting toxic behaviour to unpicking attachment styles and what society has conditioned us to be, all in the aid to regain self-confidence and worth. Sophie will be bringing her Not Bitter Just Bored project to a headline launch night at The Grace, in London on Thursday 27thOctober
