sophie-longshaw-hold-you

As a follow-up to her ’emotive and stunning’ debut single releases in 2016 – which include ‘In The Morning’, ranked #8 on NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Top Ten Songs of 2016 list, 20-year-old singer-songwriter SOPHIE LONGSHAW returns with ‘Hold You’, a beautiful and soulful acoustic electronic track recorded last summer.

The London-based student’s amazing voice attracted attention last autumn when her melancholic cover of Muse’s ‘Supermassive Black Hole’ crashed Gigwise. After signing to TWIN, her debut AA single ‘In The Morning’ and ‘Let’s Go To The Beach’ became Editors Picks and gained very positive reviews from many indie playlists and ezines.

Produced by TWIN founder and BAFTA nominated composer/producer Chris Mann, Sophie’s unique stripped back and emotional sound is built around her vocals. Influenced by a range of artists such as Noah and the Whale, Lianne la Havas, Elbow and Lucy Rose her downtempo blend of indie and pop has been compared to Birdy, Lorde and Adele.

Go on, have a listen.

 

 

Song of the Day: In The Morning – Sophie Longshaw

Sophie Longshaw In the Morning

Today’s song comes from the adorable freckled redhead SOPHIE LONGSHAW. Fresh to the music scene, the London-based songstress released two original tracks under international music agency/record label DEFDISCO (UK/Dallas) in collaboration with Chris Mann’s Twin Records, which includes the stunningly emotive, In The Morning.

With such delicately soulful vocals, this 20-year-old clearly has what it takes. After leaving BBC’s The Voice, she recorded a heart wrenching acoustic cover of Muse’s Supermassive Black Hole was premiered on Gigwise…so if you can spare five minutes, check it out – but before you head off, I highly recommend you to stick around and listen to In The Morning.
