"Private event in Leeds"

superb work and well prepared. Thank you - Craig P

"Klee Music"

Sophie Bernice is a real talent. Quiet and unassuming on stage, she quickly captivates the gathered audience with her mastery of music and voice. This is a mistress of song-smithery who has built upon her musical influences, and may well indeed surpass them in the future. An Artist in every sense of the term…. - Steve K

"Macedonian Arts Council"

Sophie is an amazing musician that I was very lucky to meet and to collaborate with. For our very challenging album with Macedonian lullabies which had to be adapted into ‘world music’ arrangements, and combining two languages, she created a very special arrangement which was perfect for her soft and esoteric voice. She even sang a stanza in Macedonian, making the song a rare gem. I am proud to know Sophie. - Pavlina P

"Chapel Gallery"

Walking past the clock tower in Ormskirk, I was stopped in my tracks on hearing the beautiful voice of Sophie Bernice. I'm so looking forward to seeing her career progress, such a talent. - Ian Brownbill


Still working on that hot first release.



Performing brings me so much joy, and I would love to share this with you and your guests. I can play a wide variety of classic covers, spanning across many genres and eras. These include tracks from artists such as Tracy Chapman, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, John Martyn, Elvis, The Kinks and many others. I can also play original indie-folk tracks. I am always open to requests and can compile a set list for you that creates the perfect atmosphere for your event. 

I have 17 years of experience in song-writing and have performed live at weddings, pubs, galleries and parties. I released my debut single with Liverpool record label ‘Klee Music’ in June 2018, followed by a self-released EP ‘Leave Our Skins’ in May 2020, available on all major streaming platforms. The EP been featured on BBC Radio Merseyside, BBC Radio Lancashire and BBC Radio Leeds.

Do not hesitate to get in touch for any enquiries you may have. I look forward to hearing from you,

‘Harrowing vocals and acoustics blend ballads with a powerful, emotional rawness that is compelling for someone so young.’- Liverpool Noise
