You may know Sophie Barker as one of the vocalists on Zero 7ís Simple Things, that luscious, sweeping vocal at the forefront of the albumís breakaway hit ĎIn The Waiting Lineí. You may also know her for her work with Groove Armada, The Egg, Grooverider, Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) and Muki, or maybe for her previous solo album Earthbound. She also worked on The Rainbow Collections, a series of childrenís music. Itís been a packed 10 years, thatís for sure Ė but with the release of new album Seagull comes the chance to get to know the real Sophie.
Sophie Barkerís new solo album Seagull reintroduces her with a more plaintive sound than before. And she talks about the new album Ė released on indie label Ho Hum Records Ė with an incredible excitement: ďItís like serendipity calling and coming together through the most natural of sources.Ē
