SOFT LAD (aka Sophie Galpin) is no stranger to the music scene, having been either touring or in the studio for most of her adult life. As a musician, she is a multi-instrumentalist for the like of SELF ESTEEM and SOAK. Now she has made her way to the front of the stage with her own heartfelt pop songs, releasing her debut EP ‘Maximum Feels’ in 2022, inspired by the 90s pop of her youth – think Eternal, The Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child, but her songs nod to indie sensibilities such as guitar solos and soaring singalong choruses.
