“I wrote these songs as if I was talking with my best girlfriends,” says Sophie Stern.
Her identity prior to this evocative new pop incarnation was as sought-after songwriter, earning her bread writing hits for A-listers like Britney Spears, British pop star Conor Maynard, and The Ready Set, among others. But make no mistake – this ain’t no wistful follow-your-dream template that Sophie is cooking up now.
What makes the 4 song offering so upbeat and engaging—besides the toppling beats bracing Stern’s sultry swagger—are the songs, themselves; soulfully primed missives like “Woman”—percolating drums and piano skating over Sophie’s empowering vocals.
“The Bom Boms are my backing band led by producer/multi-instrumentalist David Elevator,” Sophie explains. “He is my writing partner and produces all my songs. It’s always a surprise to me which Bom Boms are going to be at shows or rehearsals. Sometimes it’s a big band, sometimes it’s just him.”
