    ‘Songs’ has been listed in the top 50 albums of 2015 by The Herald
    “Nothing short of completely captivating.” David Kidman, FATEA online magazine
    “Folk-inflected jazz with rootsy warm-heartedness. “ Scotsman Weekend Life Magazine
    “Bancroft’s best album by some distance , her voice as beautifully recorded as I’ve heard it.” The Herald
    “If Dolly Parton was from Scotland and sang jazz for a living then that’s exactly how Jolene would have sounded, but as we’re not living in an alternate reality we must console ourselves with the fact that someone has seen that dream all the way. Sophie Bancroft is the lady brave enough to take on that Dolly standard.” Roddy Hart, BBC Scotland

    2014: Recording ‘SONGS’, the seventh CD from singer-songwriter Sophie Bancroft, features songs new, old, borrowed and blue, encased in Louis Durra’s stunning arrangements. Bringing to mind Rickie Lee Jones, Norah Jones, and Suzanne Vega, ‘SONGS’ takes the listener on a journey that could be about a year in a life, or indeed a lifetime, with songs of love lost, found and long-term – intertwined with the spirit of Scotland’s natural beauty, an inspiration for much of Sophie’s writing. “I am thrilled to have my landscape photography on the CD cover. These images from my many walks, reflect the influence of the countryside on my song-writing.”
