We first came across ukelele songstress Sophie Madeleine with her beautiful Take Your Love With Me. We promptly bought ourselves a ukelele and learnt the chords. You know the score.
We double dare you not to press play on the above video and not instantly fall in love with Sophie’s perfectly toned voice. How has she not had more exposure? One would think that with the success of people like Dan Croll, Mumfords and Dan Howard, artists like Sophie would have had more of a look in?
Here’s ‘Run With Us’ from her side project Runaway Orchestra, which appears to have finally got a release in April through Mr Bongo here. We haven’t heard it yet, but if it has Sophie’s trademark mix of soaring melodies over masterfully simplistic chords, then it’s sure to be a winner.
For fans of: Jason Mraz, Cliff Edwards, Isreal Kamkawiwo’ole, Gotye, Dan Croll.
