Artist bio:
A nostalgic voice amidst minimalist grooves; The Sophistocrats create a thoughtful, expansive tone. Together, their debut EP, was released on March 24th, 2018. With distilled melodic hooks and open-book lyricism, they depict a poignant narration to today’s definition of romantic love, self-love and trust (The Permanent Rain Press).

Since their inception in 2016, The Sophistocrats have built a dedicated local following that has enabled them to play the Sunshine Festival (Vernon, BC), MarketFest (Nelson, BC), the Sam Steele Days (Cranbrook, BC) and the Fisher Peak Winter Ale Series (Cranbrook, BC).

They’ve opened for touring indie bands like Dirty Mountain, Friends Of Foes, Living Hour, the Gabriel Palatchi Trio, FKB, Giant Water Bug, Steph MacPherson, Charlie Jacobson and The Racket. Their music has gotten radio play in Canada and the United States, and their song Nothing Left was a semi-finalist in the Music City Songstar Challenge.

The Sophistocrats create music inspired by shared experiences. “There is so much incredible music out there, but when I get to know the artist personally, it makes their music resonate with me on a deeper level” (Sophie, Canadian Beat Interview).
