NEW ALBUM "DRESS" OUT NOW!!!
Single "Position" now in rotation on KCRW (US) and also on BBC2. The Guardian listed the single "Connected" on the list of 6 must listen new tracks around the world (February 2014)
In her 23 Sophie Villy is well known for her unique performing style. Minimalistic arrangements, vintage guitar's distinctive twang and soulful timbre of voice open up another deep world, full of grace and intelligence, nurtured in the bohemian quarters of Georgian culture. Artists were common visitors to Sophie's childhood home in Tbilisi, they undoubtedly left their mark. We hear, as a result, both the voices of modern neighbors and the echoes of twelfth-century poet Shota Rustaveli. Grounded in that multifaceted heritage, Sophie's debut album "Mother Fish" now takes a wide range of private stories to the outside world. The singer and her catalog are one and the same: wholly sincere and full of incisive observations.. You can feel a kind of 'eastern' power, even spirituality, within her work. At times it seems to adopt the illusionary forms of mirage: if you can see or hear Sophie - even once - you'll be unable to forget her.
Sophie Villy's single "Position" is one of her most acclaimed songs, released after her first US tour (2012).
Sophie whispers to all the people to be strong and wiser, to stay away from all the dirty political games, stay free inside of your heart. Sophie Villy is an author of soundtracks for French, Georgian, American and Ukrainian films. In February 2014 she opened the show for Anna Calvi.
"Her voice is transcending; it sounds worldly and magically. She has a unique, yet common spirit."
