Million Miles is the brainchild of Franco/ British musician Sophie Baudry. Her bluesy uplifting tracks, littered with meaningful soul and resonating lyricism, are hard to resist. After being offered a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music at the age of 16, Baudry moved to Boston, then found herself in multiple cities before finding home between London and Nashville. Along the way she wrote songs of love, loss and everything in between which became the building blocks for her debut and sophomore Eps, Berry Hill and Good Luck, Honey.
Her debut single Ice Cream & Cigarettes reached No.2 in Spotify’s US viral charts, whilst single Honey has enjoyed great success at AAA and College radio and she has been supported by Billboard, Paper Magazine and Pop Matters.
Hers is a sound that is current and timeless, channelling the music she grew up listening to – Al Green, Carole King and Bill Withers whilst evoking a vocal as effortless and rich as Lianne La Havas, Emily King and Nilufer Yanya.
