To Sophia are a three piece acoustic band from Manchester, UK.
Najia Bagi (vocalist), Paul Balcolmbe (guitarist) and Dave Johnson (percussionist), officially began playing together at the beginning of 2007. Since then, they have been gigging regularly at various nights in Manchester and London. Their influences range from Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn, to Amon Tobin and ‘progressive’ rock bands such as Tool, Led Zeppelin and The Mars Volta. So their style is difficult to define! It has been described as “Folk ‘n’ Bass”, “Acoustic Drum ‘n’ Bass”, “Flamenco-inspired acoustic rock” and “Soul”.
To Sophia’s only musical aim is to create something original, passionate and exciting, as music should be.
To Sophia have just been signed to a small indie label in Manchester, and are planning to produce an album in early 2009.
