Having initially made a name for herself performing as the lead singer for indie rock band Theaudience, Sophie’s career in the music industry soon soared to new heights following her incredible success as a solo performer. Sophie’s wonderful debut album, Read My Lips, was quick to establish her as a relevant act on the international stages. As such, Read My Lips, saw Sophie achieve considerable international success from the get-go, selling over 2 million copies in total. Three of the album’s four singles also became top three hits within the UK.
Following the album’s success, Sophie was soon awarded the Edison Award in the category of Best Dance Album. Providing a worthy follow-up to her first album, Sophie soon treated her audiences to the release of her second studio album, Shoot from the Hip, producing two top ten singles in the process. Sophie’s third studio album, 2007’s Trip the Light Fantastic, also achieved commercial success. The same year saw Sophie tour with a number of other well-known acts, including George Michael and Take That.
