Sophie Bancroft (Jazz)

After a musically rebellious teenage era, at the age of 17 Sophie expressed her desire to be a jazz singer to her father, who promptly sat her down and played her his favourite albums by Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and Astrud Gilberto and started singing regularly with the family band.  Edinburgh was full of an exciting generation of young jazz musicians at this time and Sophie soon formed her own bands, developing her skills alongside  Brian Kellock, Colin Steele and John Rae to name but a few, and receiving much acclaim from the press.
