Delila was born into a family of musical aficionados; her father, an accomplished piano player, even once had Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye round for dinner when Sophie was a baby. Growing up, Sophie was influenced by a lot of blues, jazz and classical music and early on she fell in love with Stevie Wonder as well as the Beatles. She began playing the piano at age 5 and within a few years was racing home from school to write songs and record in her father's home studio. So it's not surprising that at 17 she won a scholarship to the revered Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
Big boats, big planes, big autographs A scene straight from a 60s photograph We both know the moment never lasts. Sex and drugs and rock'n roll Eventually will take its toll Life is only exciting seconds before the crash. I'm on the ground You're in the air Flying around in your electric chair Flip the switch to reach the heights Miles above the city lights. When you're livin' the high life The whole world seems so small One if these days you're bound to fall When you're givin' next to nothing You might as well give it all One of these days You're bound to fall. Both hands held out across my face Too afraid to let you fall from grace Every stunt you pull I lose a little faith I've lost count of all the times You stepped across the borderline Knocking on heaven's door Ready to die to feel alive. I'm on the ground You're in the air Without a tie without a care Cut the cord to reach the heights Miles above the city lights. When you're livin' the high life The whole world seems so small One if these days you're bound to fall When you're givin' next to nothing You might as well give it all One of these days You're bound to fall It s a sacrifice You Gotta pay the price When you touch the sky You're bound to fall.

In Sophie Delila erupted onto the pop scene with the release of her impeccable debut, Hooked. The record boasted a string of truly unique and flavoursome pennings, carried by the memorable and Motown inspired lead single, Nature of the Crime. The release came out of nowhere and swept us off our feet when it was released and still has us tapping our toes along to the brimming collection of songs she pieced together for that introductory release. Fast forward 4 years and Delila has recently released a follow up record in the shape of My Life Could Use A Remix , a collection that takes a slightly different approach to her usual Motown influenced style and incorporates a much more commercial, pop-oriented sound. Having recently wrapped up several performances alongside music veteran and recording icon Jeff Beck, we were given the opportunity and pleasure to talk to Sophie to discuss new albums, touring schedules and the meaning behind some of the more personal sounding inclusions on her latest offering. Here is what Sophie had to tell us….
You just need to figure out where your girlfriend is. I wish you the best. Thought the girl and I had a future, and we did, just not with each other I'll bet there are hundreds of boyfriend converts out there. We have lunch and have each others undivided attention while the kids are at school. Thank you so much, L. Why Mormons are not sexist. I am a lawyers wife. I believe rules are to be obeyed.
