We need to support all local artists so they can suceed in making great music".

Sophie is one of the organisers of Reading Pride and hosts the second stage called "Pride aLive". This year there are fourteen local acts who are either supports of LGBTQ+ rights or who are LGBTQ+ themselves. The event runs every year and this year is being held on Kings Meadows in Reading on the 31st August. This is the third year the stage is running with Sophie spearheading the connection between the LGBTQ+ community and the local Reading music scene.

The band originally release their debut EP in October 2018 to celebrate Sophie's 50th birthday and have recently released their follow up single "Hold on to the Light" which is also available on most digital platforms. They are looking forward to recording some of their other popular tracks which they play live as well as potentially recording a new Album next year.
