“SOPHIE COLETTE IS VULNERABLE, SWEET, AND HONEST IN THE WAY THAT IS OFTEN LACKING FROM SO MUCH POP MUSIC NOWADAYS” — POPDUST
SOPHIE COLETTE is a Brooklyn, New York-based indie pop artist, who emerged onto New York City’s music scene by way of fashion, and a little bit of Chopin.
While cutting her teeth in the ateliers of designers Phillip Lim and Thakoon, Colette collected lyrics in her sketchbooks and brought them to life with the help of producer Ben Rice (The Candles, Elliot & The Ghost, Queue) of Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, New York.
Following her self-released EP Strangers and Lovers, her single “Tonite” was featured at New York Fashion Week 2017 for emerging designer Jasmine Chong’s runway presentation.
Colette’s latest 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 content media platform ULTRA. In early 2018 Colette released several tracks including “Pattern” which premiered on Popdust, and “Slow Danse” which premiered on glamglare with an accompanying short film directed by Curvel Baptiste.
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 Degraw Sound to work on forthcoming releases.
