Sophia is an experienced, energetic freelance freestyle female saxophonist, based in Cheshire.
She has been in high demand in the entertainment sector since graduating from the prestigious LIPA, in 2009, where she was awarded the Victor Greenberg Liverpool Jazz Award.
Her particular love of jazz, funk and soul music has allowed her to improvise/freestyle alongside DJs and fellow musicians across the world.
Sophia regularly performs in various venues across the UK, but has also had the opportunity to play in Spain, France, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Bahrain.
Sophia is available to play solo saxophone with backing tracks, solo saxophone with piano, saxophone and violin duo, or saxophone improvising/freestyle alongside a DJ for:
weddings, drink receptions, corporate events, functions, private parties and club nights.
She has a wide variety of music in her repertoire and is happy to cater to individual requests, whether it be providing subtle lounge 'Ibiza style' chillout lounge background music at drinks receptions, or mingling with guests on the dance floor whilst playing funky house tracks.
"We hired Sophia for my husband's 40th party and I've got to say say was absolutely amazing. With not using a musician like this before we were worried how people would react. There was no need for all that worry. We were inundated with positive feedback from our party guests the following week. Everyone was saying how amazing she was. Sophia really brought the party to life. I would highly recommend her to anyone. :-)”
