Easter Sunday Lunchtime Special Featuring Sophie Simonds!
Sophie Simonds and her band will be making their debut in the Jazz Room, featuring songs from Sophie's forthcoming album. Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sophie Simonds has been a musician all her life, playing six instruments by the time she was 11, eventually achieving distinction in both Grade 8 Jazz Saxophone and Grade 8 Violin, within weeks of each other, before going on to start working as a session saxophonist at the age of 18. Inspired by the likes of Gregory Porter, Pink, Amy Winehouse and Bishop Briggs, with a backing of old school jazz influences like Muddy Waters and Miles Davis, as well as artists like Otis Redding and Tracy Chapman, Sophie writes mostly Blues, Rock and Neo - Soul, but being a saxophonist at heart, Sophie always finds a way to fit in a Blues riff, and a saxophone solo or two!
