Record your own unique soundworld to win tickets to Sophie’s tour and a signed copy of ‘Seagull’
Sophie Barker, the sublime voice behind Zero 7’s stunning first two albums will release her new solo album ‘Seagull’ through independent label, Ho Hum Records on May 9th.
You may know Sophie Barker as one of the vocalists on Zero 7’s Simple Things, that luscious, sweeping vocal at the forefront of the album’s breakaway hit ‘In The Waiting Line’. You may also know her for her work with Groove Armada, The Egg, Grooverider, Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) and Muki, or maybe for her previous solo album Earthbound. She also worked on the Rainbow Collections, a series of children’s music. It’s been a packed 10 years, that’s for sure – but with the release of Seagull, comes the chance to know the real Sophie.
Fibratus is a London based producer and remix artist creating a number of interactive and participatory music works.
