Sofia Sarri started her music endeavors as the lead vocalist for the Greek post rock/trip-hop band Night On Earth in 2005, with whom she released two albums (Night on Earth, Outlandish 2006 & Second Hand, SONY BMG 2008). NOE’s breathtaking live shows became a trademark for the Greek indie scene influencing numerous bands with their long melancholic improvisations. Based in Athens, she continued to perform and tour with the most accomplished local folk singer/songwriters, while studying music and singing, embarking in numerous side projects, such as recording for rock band Borderline Syndrome (Stateless, 2012) and collaborating with jazz pianist Costis Christodoulou. At present, she has just finished recording her debut album on which she collaborates with some of the best Greek musicians, combining instruments such as the Cretan lyra and the vibraphone, bringing out her own unique perspective on melody and songwriting.
“[…] lead singer Sophia Sarri’s strong but still aching voice has the dramatic sense of classic cabaret down, while the understated power of the performers, strings, and noir-tinged beats and bass sets the mood early on, living up to the band’s name nicely.”
Ned Raggett, on Night on Earth Second Hand
