PREMIERE: Get to know singer-songwriter Sophie Coran in her new single “Jimmy”
Newly returned from London where she released her debut EP Better, singer-songwriter Sophie Coran has traded scenes and returned to her Philadelphia roots. After spending the past year recording her tracks backed by Darla, the eight-piece instrumental funk band based in Philly, Coran is now preparing for the release of her second EP All That Matters. The combination of Coran’s intimate, smooth vocals with the full-band makes for a powerful combination that will certainly give the new EP a very different feel from the keyboard-driven debut EP.
The lead single “Jimmy” is a poppy, soulful track that tells the tale of an evening spent with the eponymous Jimmy, a coworker from Coran’s restaurant job. In her lyrics, Coran is often inspired by her relationships and encounters with other people and the lyrics show this.
Get a first listen to “Jimmy” below, and catch Sophie Coran performing with fellow Philadelphia singer-songwriter Jake Bernard at PhilaMOCA on July 15th before she embarks on a tour to support All That Matters, slated for a September release.
