Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Indie band Sophia includes The Flower Shop Recordings mainman and former The God Machine singer/guitarist Robin Proper-Sheppard. After the sudden and tragic death of schoolfriend and God Machine bassist Jimmy Fernandez, Proper-Sheppard began searching for a new musical outlet. Together with friends and fellow musicians from other Flower Shop bands Elevate, Ligament and Oil Seed Rape, Proper-Sheppard began working on the music that would become known as Sophia. Citing influences such as Neil Young, Uncle Tupelo and Sparklehorse, early albums Fixed Water (1996) and Infinite Circle (1998) were much more acoustic-based and given the circumstances understandably more melancholic than The God Machine while People Are Like Seasons (2004) and Technology Won’t Save Us (2007) started to return to a more electrically dynamic and orchestrated sound. There Are No Goodbyes was released via The Flower Shop/City Slang in 2009.

2) Sophia is a act from Sweden. The band is the brainchild of Peter Bjärgö (born Peter Pettersson), also of Arcana. Using and heavy rhythms, sections, orcestration and soundscapes, Sophia crafts a dark and oppressive soundscape of nihilism, bitterness and sorrow.
