SOPHIE COLETTE is a Brooklyn, New York-based indie pop artist.
Initially arriving in New York City to pursue fashion design, Colette pivoted her ambitions to music after being scouted at a high school reunion by the bassist of former indie rock darlings, The Party Faithful. A month later Colette performed and toured with the band on keys, synth, and vocals all over New York City and the tri-state area, during which she met producer Ben Rice of Degraw Sound. She later presented Rice with a stack of sketchbooks filled with lyrics and visual palettes, bringing her solo project to the fore.
Colette’s latest single release “Version” premiered in 2019 on Asymmetric Magazine, and has been compared to Tangerine Dream for its “gently pulsing, down-tempo atmosphere.” (Sound Thread Music Blog). Her live debut at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall cemented “Version” as “Colette’s most stunning work to date.” (glamglare)
“Run Around” released in late 2018 was praised by Emerging Indie Bands for being intimate, melancholic, and emotional with poignantly layered electronics and vocals.
Her previous release “That Kind Of Love” premiered on CelebMix who described the track as a “truly mesmerising sound” and was selected as the exclusive soundtrack for media platform ULTRA. In early 2018 Colette released several tracks including “Pattern” which premiered on Popdust as “vulnerable, sweet, and honest,” and “Slow Danse” which premiered on glamglare, with an accompanying short film directed by Curvel Baptiste.
Previously, her single “Tonite” from her debut EP Strangers and Lovers was featured at New York Fashion Week for Jasmine Chong’s 2017 runway presentation to editors of Vogue, WWD, and Elle magazine. Selected footage from her music video for “Get Close,” directed by Stephen Dirkes of Obscure Films, was nominated for Best Creative Concept, Art Direction, and Visual Effects at the La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival. Colette supported the release with a European promo tour with indie-folk artist The Crystal Elephant across festivals and stages in Berlin, Barcelona, and Edinburgh.
Sophie returns to the studio to work on forthcoming releases.
