First of all !
One of my favourite songs from "Dress"
Sophie Villy's second album :
Far From Moscow: ”The singer-songwriter Sophie Villy is blessed with manifest expertise in a range of languages - English, Russian, Ukrainian, and Georgian. Not long ago, she returned to Kiev following a number of concerts in the US. Several of those events overlapped with the damage done by Hurricane Sandy. The first order of business since her homecoming has been the publication of this debut video, shot in Tbilisi.” David MacFadyen
Who is she :
Sophie Villy - remarkebly promising singer/songwriter, known for her unique performing style. Minimalistic arrangments, 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. In 2008 she was hiding from warfare in her homeland, but has since moved to her motherland Kiev, Ukraine. 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" took a wide range of private stories to the outside world. Her second album "Dress"(See Below), released in may 2014, is already a different story and attitude of her to art and life in general. "Dressed in myself I walk, I walk, I walk"..
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.
