Sophie Ellis-Bextor rocks into Lynn Festival Too

Sophie Ellis-BextorPop sensation Sophie Ellis-Bextor hits the stage of Festival Too on Friday. She recently spoke about how much she loves performing live at gigs – so we should all be in for a real treat!

Ever since the 32-year-old stormed onto the scene with retro dance track Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love) in 2000 she has gone from strength to strength, effortlessly combining motherhood (Sophie has two young children with her husband, The Feeling bassist Richard Jones) with co-writing and performing a series of chart-topping albums.

Her music is a toe-tapping mixture of mainstream pop, disco, nu-disco, and 1980s electronic influences.

Her fourth album, Make a Scene, was released in June, soon after Groovejet was named “the decade’s most played track on radio.” A few weeks ago she revealed that she has already began work on her fifth album.

A few interesting facts about Sophie:

* Her mum is ex Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis, and she admitted that when she was younger she used to nick her mum’s badges to make a few quid in the school playground, charging 50p for a badge or £1 for a badge and her mum’s autograph.

* In 1997, whilst singing lead vocal with indie band The Audience, readers of Melody Maker elected her to the number-one position among the ‘most sexy people in rock’.

* Sophie has other talents apart from singing: She’s a songwriter, model and occasional DJ.

* Recent quote: “I haven’t shied away from writing happy songs, because I am happy, plus they’re quite hard to write and I like that challenge.” ~ Belfast Telegraph

Sophie Ellis Bexter will be performing at Festival Too in the Tuesday Market Place, King’s Lynn on Friday 8th July – along with Sinead and the Dawnbreakers.
