Sophie Ackroyd
Songwriter | Producer

Sophie Ackroyd is a London-based songwriter and producer.

Her music has been played on BBC Radio 1 and Radio 6, featured in TV shows on the BBC & ABC network’s Grey’s Anatomy, chosen for Universal Production Music’s ‘100% Her’ album and has been a mainstay in Spotify’s editorial New Pop UK playlist for the past few years – with the majority of her releases also being added to New Music Friday both domestically & around the world.

Sophie 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, RØRY and Beth Mccarthy. She is currently working with artists such as India Parkman, lleo, Grace Grundy and Natalie Shay to name a few.

In 2020 she was resident at Spotify’s Songwriting Studio for 6 months, working out of Metropolis Studios. With Spotify, she engineered for Future Cut, Trakgirl, Nina Nesbitt, Plested 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 is now freelance at her own studio at Gorilla Studios in South London.
