SOPHY

Born and raised in Hong Kong, SOPHY is a singer-songwriter/ vocalist/ producer. With roots ranging from local pop music to jazz and electronica, she first appeared as a finalist in TVB <The Voice> in 2009, and later co-founded an indie label Bunny Eats Ltd. with famous local producer Chiu Tsang Hei in 2016 as she debutted 《Sophrology》 in the same year, which earned her at iTunes Album No.1 once the album was self-released. She then released in 2017 her second EP《QUARTER》, which earned her the nomination by 2018 Golden Indie Award in Taiwan. With her hands-on music vision to self-curate all materials, she is creating her own sound amongst a new generation of cross-genres artists in Asian music contemporaries. 

 

After two highly-acclaimed canto EPs, her latest album 《HARSH (殘)》 marks the ambitious vision conceptually and sonically to fuse pop / dark R&B/ electronica with her soulful vocals, creating an apocalyptic soundscape for the discourse of the digital age. The album was nomindated for the Renaissance Award (Music) 2020. SOPHY opened for Moonchild (US), Rhodes (UK) and indie electronic music label Dark Paradise (TW); performed at Clockenflap (HK), Asia Music Keep Rolling Festival (TW); Her collaborative single ‘Soul” with Kosgi from London was also featured by Future Classics reccomends (AUS) while her recent album was also featured by local & overseas media editorials including Mixmag (UK) and Avyss Magazine (JP) etc.

As SOPHY explores her creative journey, upon leaving Bunny Eats Ltd end of 2019, she is now based in Taipei & Hong Kong. Breaking the limit between pop music and contemporary arts, she continues to open up the imagination and participates in various cross-over & collaborations with artists across the world.
