Music Is My Life You See...

Sophie Ellis-Bextor is unique in every sense of the word. Her voice isn't like anyone else. The first time I saw her I thought she looked sort of like a porcelain doll. Which she obviously capitalized on her video 'Get Over You' where she plays a manequin come to life! (A video you HAVE to see!)

Her music is unique as well, being a mix of pop, disco and 80's electronic music. her music career began as part of an indie band back in the late 90's. Then Sophie got her big break. In 2000 she sang lead vocals for Italian Dj - Spillers hit single 'Groovejet' which ended up going #1 in the Uk.

Success came fast from there. Her debut album was released in 2001. In 2002 she had the most played song in Europe for the entire year with 'Murder on the Dancefloor.'

Despite 2 hit singles from her second album, the album was seen as a commercial failure and Sophie ended up taking a hiatus to give birth to her son.

Loyal fans were rewarded for their patience earlier this year when Sophie released her AMAZING 3rd album 'Trip The Light Fantastic.' Despite the fact that she hasn't been able to replicate her early success the music is just as good as it was before. Her latest single 'Today The Sun's On Us' was received very well by critics across the globe.

Currenltly Sophie is touring with Take That and will be releasing a Greatest Hits album November 19th.

While I'm at it... here's the video I mentioned.
