MICROPHONES BY RODE
Sophie Sputniks' love and appreciation for music was immediately born at the age of 3 as her mother’s beautiful voice and father’s uncanny ability with blues guitar constantly seeped through the walls of their Boca Raton home in South Florida.
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 needed 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,” she honed her skills and developed her style while conquering the mic circuits of South Florida and the coalfields of Pennsylvania in what she refers to as “the normal journey of a confused musician.”
Today South Florida audiences mostly know her as the lead singer and drummer for the band Killmama, who appears nonstop on stages across the region.
She also does studio work for other acts, like the soulful blues she did on an EP for the well-known regional band Que Lastima.
