Daughter of a second wave feminist and a scientist turned computer guru, Sophie D’Orléans is an indie R&B singer songwriter with an inviting presence. Her relatable songwriting is witty and subtly subversive. She accompanies herself on piano, intuitively layering pop and jazz to create a characteristically contemplative sound. Layback and indulge in her silky voice, sweet melodies and zesty grooves.
“a poignant narration to today’s definition of romantic love, self-love and trust."
“atmospheric and catchy hooks with an emotion that is raw and transparent"
If you like Allen Stone, Laila Biali or Alicia Keys you’ll love Sophie D’Orléans.
