Sophie Jamieson is a London-based songwriter who delivers intimate, visceral and uncomfortably honest songs. She explores the dips and troughs of mental health, uncompromising examinations of loneliness and pain, but always with an underlying strength that promises hope, and growth. Sophie released her first EP, Where to critical acclaim in 2013. A botched recording experience and a personal breakdown contributed to a withdrawal altogether from music for four years, in which she trained as a cocktail bartender and thought she’d never make music again.
In 2019 however, something changed, and the songs started coming. Since then, Sophie has released two EPs, Hammer and Release, which examine depression, coping mechanisms and isolation, as well as the effort to rescue oneself. Her debut album, Choosing, will be released this winter on Bella Union. Following on from 2020’s EPs, it aims to close this chapter by looking at self-destructive behaviour straight in the face and grappling with it more uncompromisingly than ever before. It’s about trying, failing, and trying again, to pull yourself out of a downward spiral, choosing yourself and allow yourself to live.
“The title of this album is so important,” Sophie explains. “Without it, this might sound like another record about self-destruction and pain, but at heart, it’s about hope, and finding strength. It’s about finding the light at the end of the tunnel and crawling towards it.”
Eva Lunny also a member of fresh Brighton psych outfit Hutch, is a harpist, composer and ambient music producer from Brighton. Eva creates a mix of soundscapes and neoclassical pieces for her live show.
