Passionate about artist development, Sophie has worked with artists from around the globe across many genres ranging from country to electronic pop and can adapt to any style as a versatile and inventive songwriter-producer. She is continuously working with some of the industry’s most up-and-coming artists and writers and has played an integral role in the development of new talent such as Kings Elliot, lleo, Brooke Law and BOBBi.
She recently completed the 2019/2020 studio residency at Spotify’s Secret Genius Studio, where she spent 6 months working at Metropolis Studios. With Spotify, she engineered for Future Cut, Trakgirl, Nina Nesbitt, Plested, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and many more.
Taking a rather unconventional route to where she is now, Sophie started her education with an English Literature degree from Oxford University, before realising her passion for songwriting. After leaving a steady job at the BBC in a career U-turn, she learned the ropes of audio engineering at various different London studios – Red Bull Studios and Battersea Park Studios (formerly Sphere Studios) before going freelance at her own studio at Gorilla Studios in South London.
