New Release & Video: Sophie Morgan – Hey Annie

Twenty-year-old singer-songwriter Sophie Morgan released her debut EP Annie recently and the video for lead track Hey Annie is available to watch now…

Hey Annie is the perfect introduction to the EP. It is a folk-tinged track with a delicate animated melody and a warming honeyed vocal. The EP is shaped by Sophie’s musical influences and is a body of work that is ahead of her young years. The video is a relaxed affair and shows Sophie and her tight-knit group of musician friends performing the track together in retro inspired footage

Sophie says; “It encapsulates my earliest musical years, marking the end of the first chapter and the beginning of the next. The EP features the playing of all the musical friends I have made so far and is a real family affair recorded between all of our houses. I can feel that warmth and homeliness in the imperfections of the recordings – like the squeaking of my old piano stool or the creaking of the floorboards in my living room”

The EP also features a cover of The Waterboys The Whole Of The Moon, which is a record that Sophie has loved since being a child. Mike Scott of The Waterboys heard Sophie’s cover and was so impressed he invited Sophie to tour with the band this autumn. After honing her live sound with busking and her own live shows, Sophie will be performing with The Waterboys on all dates throughout October and November
