Our award for EP Of The Year 2013 goes to Sophie Jamieson with 'Where'.
We've been following Sophie's progress over the past 12 months with keen interest and recently nominated her for the UK Blog Sound Of 2014 list, which pleasingly she duly made onto the top 15.
Released in June through Folkroom Records, 'Where' is a 5-track album that is deftly powerful and belies the tender years that Jamieson possesses.
Here's what our writer Sarah had to say when she reviewed the EP back in August.
"Jamieson's music fills shady silences with pensive waves of stillness. She makes gently breathing melodies with soft instrumentation, lifted with cello and electronic nuances, while her vocals lift and fall from heady breaths to strong expressive, full bodied notes...Folk is always in danger of falling through the cracks of dull repetitiveness, but there is just enough emotional and instrumental tension within this EP to keep a dreaming listener entranced. This is music like flickering candlelight, to lie still, to think and to feel to." // Sophie Jamieson
