Born in France but now based in London, Sophie Delila has certainly paid her dues. As a teen she won a scholarship at Boston’s prestigious Berkley School of Music before going on to work at studios by day, then gigging by night in New York. Sophie’s written songs for artists including Duffy and Rummer, duetted with the likes of Jack Savoretti and Plan B, toured with Mika and Lionel Richie and tonight Sophie is special guest to the legendary Jeff Beck on stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall (May 14).
Sophie’s sophomore UK album is set to see her truly step into the limelight in her own right. ‘My Life Could Use A Remix’ boasts an impressive array of collaborators such as the legendary Don Black, co-writer of the title track, singer-songwriter Judy Tzuke and producers Monarchy and The Suppliers.
‘My Life Could Use A Remix’ is due for release on June 9th, and features stunning lead single ‘Bound To Fall’, which was co-written with American singer-songwriter Julian Velard and inspired by the death of a friend who passed away in an accident. In Sophie’s words the song is about “the highs and lows of life, the higher you get, the bigger the fall could be. It’s about enjoying big moments as life is short.”
