A prodigious talent whom picked up many repeated postings on this blog and many others like it. It was a genuine shock and shame when Sophie Jamieson stopped just as she appeared to be making headway in the almost impossible ‘industry’ mid way through 2015. Not only that, but Sophie was (and probably still is) one of the most genuine, caring and kind people I came across through music.
We do however have the music she released prior to remember her by, the track which I will always turn to is the impossibly beautiful Ode to the East. It’s filled with the genuine emotion and class that Sophie seemed able to create at will, a slow-motion acoustic waltz filled with space and atmosphere that plucks at your hear-strings and leaves you desperate for me.
A reunion show by chance?
