BIOGRAPHIES

Sophie Morgan

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

Sophie Morgan is a 17 year-old singer/songwriter from Widnes- right in the middle of Manchester and Liverpool. She began playing piano age six and reading poetry books around a similar time, which ultimately lead to writing her first 'proper' song when she was nine. She began gigging age 14 in an over-21 bar, getting home at 3 in the morning on a school night!

Two years ago, she won an international competition run and judged by her favourite band The Counting Crows, in which she covered their song, ‘Holiday in Spain’.

In 2011 she was singing at a wedding of a family friend and one of the guests happened to be Simon Jones (bass player of ‘The Verve’). Since meeting him that day, age 14, he has been a real mentor figure to her as well as producing some of her tracks.
