Bob has the hugely talented Sophie Jamieson on the show this week who he has Roger Mairlot, a huge gig goer, to thank for discovering. I have to say after watching the video below I was just blown away, she is incredible! Over to Bob:
There is a legendry gig goer in London called Roger Mairlot I have met him a few times here and there, in fact he is at about 75% of the gigs I go too, He is a great guy and I always love having a chat with him…he must goes to about twenty gigs a week maybe more! Well he spotted Sophie Jamieson first at a gig and then told Ben Walker from FolkRoom about her. Sophie has now isigned to Folkroom and has featured on one of the FolkRoom compilation EP’s. She will be releasing her own EP later in the year.
As you will hear in the session Sophie did she is just stunning and it is no surprise she is getting a name for herself on the London scene as one of the rising stars of the Folk world and I have to say she is one of the most charming people I have ever met too and I have met a lot.
