Sophia Marshall burst onto the UK Americana scene as one-half of highly acclaimed band The HaveNots (Cooking Vinyl Records), earning praise alongside as an accomplished female singer-songwriter within the alt-country music scene.
Since the launch of her solo career in 2015, Leicestershire’s Sophia Marshall has continued to develop and hone her own musical voice, showcasing her individuality alongside fond influences worn proudly on her sleeve, but always presented with sincerity and sometimes painful honesty.
Sophia’s gloriously sad ballads and strong sultry vocal performances reach out across genres to break any listener’s heart, whilst her more upbeat numbers will put smiles on faces and set toes tapping. She has even been known to reinterpret the occasional old HaveNots song, when performing with her new indie-folk/indie-pop full band line up.
“Marshall’s larynx is somewhere between Emmylou Harris and Hope Sandoval. Heartening stuff.” Uncut Magazine
