Biography

Sophie Sputniks' love and appreciation for music was immediately born at the age of 3 as her mothers beautiful voice and fathers uncanny ability with blues guitar constantly seeped through the walls of their Boca Raton home in South FL. Born on November 14 1988, it took Sputnik several years of personal battles and discovery to stumble upon South Carolina folk musician Cary Ann Hearst, the artist ...who would ultimately solidify the kind of emotion she sought to personify through her music. This, coupled with a boundless respect for Thom Yorke’s brilliant melodies, has lead her to formulate her own unique style of grassroots blues infused with modern sensibility and Americana folklore rock n roll.

Described by many as someone who does not take herself "too seriously", do not underestimate the passion, inner struggles, true grit and raw talent that combine deep within this reticent livewire, resulting in the escape of prodigious sounds. After what she refers to as “the normal journey of a confused musician”, Sputnik set out to conquer the open mic circuits, not only in Scranton Pennsylvania, but also in South Florida, where she has been receiving acclaim as a solo artist for the past six months, playing in well respected venues such as Churchills, Radio-Active Records, Stage 84, DADA, The Monterey Club, The Speakeasy and Propaganda to name a few.

With her journey leaving her stronger than ever, Sputnik’s determination and hard work have acquired her management under Natalie Smallish, president and founder of Smallish Entertainment, a "small" entertainment company based out of Fort Lauderdale FL, which defines itself as an independent "pushing machine" for artists they believe can bring back the originality of what the music industry desperately lacks.

Currently, Smallish Entertainment and Radio-Active records have partnered up to flush out her first full length LIVE album, "THE CHASE." October 1st 2011.
