Sophie Coran’s sonic world is crafted with firm intentionality, effortless poignancy, and imagistic seduction. The genre she feels the most at home in, her signature Noir & B style, is a blend of R&B, jazz, and classical composition, tied together with a ribbon of hyper-sentimentality. Her debut album, S P A C E, details the struggle of unrequited love, and learning to balance the imperative nature of self-worth with desire. Inspired by high-profile artists like Fiona Apple, Nick Hakim, and Amy Winehouse, she pulls contemporary swells from pop music and overlays them with intimate string and piano arrangements. Pair that with her affinity for classic films, vintage landscapes, and the romanticism of Europe, and you have a uniquely visceral experience that only she can so masterfully deliver.
She is joined by longtime producer and engineer Michael Cumming of Treacle Mine Recording in Philadelphia, PA, and is backed by her band, Logan Roth (keys), Arjun Dube (drums), and Mike Morrongiello (bass). Tipped as one of 10 Artists You Should Know from Philadelphia on NPR music, “Singer-songwriter Sophie Coran fancies her aesthetic Noir & B, which is a clever way of packaging an artist who boasts both a faux-fur coat vintage Hollywood look, and a smoky-voiced after-hours lounge sound. Below the surface, though, Coran's songs are complex studies of human connection — between lovers, between parents and their children, between strangers.”
