Hey, I’m Sophie Morgan. I have just turned 15 and music is my life.
I’ve been writing for several years now and performing pretty much all my life! If I could find a plank of wood to stand on, I’d call it a stage and perform. Piano is my main instrument but I can play guitar and manage the drums. I was raised with music and it’s in my blood. My family are a big inspiration on my music and writing. My lucky number is 13 and I love Barbados and Portugal. I’m a December baby I have amazing friends all over the world and I believe in love. I was actually born to music and I have never thought of doing anything else in my life! While everyone else is in school choosing proper jobs like accountants or lawyers, there’s me just wanting to play my music and one day maybe playing an arena. Music is like a sixth sense and a best friend.
I love every type of music! From Frank Sinatra with my grandad, to My Chemical Romance and the Counting Crows with my dad! I admire Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Lady Antebellum and lots of other talented musicians. I first saw Avril Lavigne’s video for Complicated when I was about four and I knew I wanted to do that. My grandad went out and bought me a guitar and a skateboard and then a beautiful grand piano that I write most of my songs on. I’m always in class jotting down lines and pretty words ready for my next song, or typing in notes in my phone when a spark of inspiration hits me.
I love recording. I first recorded when I was seven, in a little studio called Frog Studios and now I am recording my own songs frequently. I travel down to London once a month for vocal coaching with David and Carrie Grant, who are amazing people and have gorgeous kids! My first proper performance was when I was about nine or ten singing My Immortal in a local theatre for a school concert. I have been performing ever since! I am constantly at concerts, it’s my favorite thing! I have waited by stage doors from the age of ten until 2am in minus temperatures just to meet my idols, and my mum and dad are with me every step of the way.
Things are really starting to happen for me now with the help of some very talented musicians. I am currently working on recording my first album at Faktory Studios in Great Barrow, Chester. Simon Jones, the Bass player from the iconic British band ‘The Verve’ is playing on the tracks along with Richard Barnes, a very close friend and talented guitarist, singer and songwriter. It all sounds amazing and 2012 is going to be so much fun. I am so excited
Thanks for taking the time to read about me, Sophie xo
