    Written over the last few years, it features songs that look at life’s cameos from a feminine perspective, reflecting a more settled period in her life where she is experiencing her children growing up, her relationships becoming more long-term and having to scroll further down the drop-down menus to find her year of birth online. The music is ultimately wrapped in Sophie’s voice, her intimate acoustic guitar, and accompaniment from her band featuring double bassist Tom Lyne, fiddler Amy Geddes and guitarist/percussionist Ross Mitson.

    “Bancroft has delivered an outstanding set of songs that deserve to be heard by a wider audience” MAVERICK MAGAZINE 4 stars

    “Her voice is a perfect instrument, and when partnered by her own songs, the effect is both moving and incredibly life affirming.” LEICESTER BANGS

    “She channels her jazz raising into folk intimacy” NETRHYTHMS
