About the Artist

Sofia Palm is a London based artist with a fresh raw sound and love for honest songwriting. Starting out independently making folk music, she has developed her own distinct sound, incorporating rock, pop, punk and soul. She has played shows in London and Stockholm, and has opened for artists including Emelie Sandé.

Her cover of Psycho Killer by the Talking Heads is to be featured on the soundtrack of feature film ‘El Jardin’. Her influences include 70’s rock, her favourite artists being those like David Bowie and Patti Smith, yet draws from a melting pot of inspirations creating a sound of her own. Mostly self taught, she approaches songwriting in a unique and playful way. With a keenly observant eye and love for word play, her songs are that of story telling; painting pictures of her take on the world, with a quirky hook and emotive melody.

“We’re delighted to bring Space to life in a completely different way with a new orchestral arrangement by Walter Mair and the addition of the choir, especially in such a special setting as Abbey Road.”

Simon Neil in NME magazine

Soundtrack

‘Shadow’ was co-written by Sofia and Walter for the coming-of-age drama ‘Iceland Is Best’, starring Judd Nelson and Helena Mattson. The beautiful lyrics were performed by Sofia with Walter taking over production and recording a string quartet of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The instruments were recorded by Nick Taylor at the iconic Air Edel Studios (Madonna, Queen, ‘Mr Turner’). To add to a more emotional and warm sound the recordings were made to analog tape and later processed in Pro Tools.
