Sophie says:

My name is Sophie Draper and I am seventeen years old. I have been singing since I was young. I used to write poems from a very early age and recently I have started writing songs since I took up learning the guitar. I performed last year in a show called ‘Live and unsigned’ where I was spotted by agents that then signed me to their Artist academy, where artists like Pixie Lott and Rui Da Silva have emerged from. In this I am writing and recording new songs with an acclaimed songwriter/ producer with an aim to have an album of demos and to be signed up. 

I would say my influences are Michelle branch, Taylor Swift and The Band Perry as my voice fits in the country/pop genre. I have won a few music festivals and played my own song called ‘Your eyes’ in Trosley festival in 2010. I performed at various school events and am now at my first year of college (Kcollege) studying music performance where I have performed at a few college gigs. 

In the future I wish to be a recognized recording artist and reach out to people with my music as others have to me.

Sophie is accompanied by George Priddle on guitar.
