Sofie Winterson

Dive into a Dutch singer's dreamlike, mystical river of folk, pop, and electronic music
Bursting out inside of me, this lightning smile of yours. Stop saying this is nothing new, that it all happened before.
lyrics from Said and Done

Sofie Winterson has found her artistic voice in combining her folk roots with electronic music which has led her to making dreamlike indie-pop. Sometimes also described by press as kitsch-pop or art-pop and often compared to Beach House and the XX. Sofie Winterson has kicked off her career with Your Eyes in 2013, the track was featured in a worldwide Braun campaign.

In 2014 Sofie followed up with a first single entitled 'Said and Done' of a new project with a video by the artist duo Pinar & Viola, known for their socially engaged art, videos for the likes of Diplo and monthly column for Dazed and Confused. Sofie showcased at SXSW 2014 and Eurosonic/Noorderslag to present her live set. Her follow up single 'River' was released May 2014 with a video by photography-film duo Petrovsky & Ramone and found support among many blogs worldwide.

Her truly impressive debut album 'Wires' was created with her bandmembers Lyckle de Jong (Keys), Rutger van Woudenberg (guitar), Illan Voshol (drums) and producer Rimer London, due to be released on Magnetron Music end of summer 2014.
