Currently selling out venue after venue on her North American tour and fresh from a stunning duet performance with Aaron Neville at the Montreal International Jazz FestivalP it all started for Sophie in the Ural Mountains of Russia, where she was born. Her family migrated to Israel after the collapse of communism, and relocated to Canada a few years later. Little remained from their upheaval other than some family heirlooms and a cherished vinyl record collection, which provided the music that is now the foundation for Sophie's love of jazz.
Sophie Milman's formative years were spent growing up in Israel where she began listening to jazz intently, which led to her deep appreciation for artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Oscar Peterson, Stevie Wonder, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Ray Charles and many more. At the tender age of 15, Sophie and her family were uprooted yet again to Canada. It was through her love of music that Sophie was able to adjust to her new surroundings, and her introduction to the rich and diverse musical landscape of Toronto's cultural scene paved the way.
'I love Toronto. I love the fact that you can find every type of music in this city. I love Toronto's openness to new styles and ideas. It creates such an eclectic and rich musical and cultural palette.'
Headlining sold out 500 capacity venues on her first tour this summer. Sophie and her band performed at every major Canadian jazz festival, including the prestigious Festival International Du Jazz Du Montreal - which sold out two months in advance. According to Elle Canada, Sophie is: "The Real Deal".
This beautiful and critically acclaimed artist has graced the cover of New York's Jerusalem Report and Forward newspaper, Voir magazine in Montreal, Lifestyles magazine, and Klublife magazine in Toronto. Sophie has it all, she is not just beautiful and talented but well educated, fluent in four languages and juggling her career with studying commerce at the University of Toronto. The international release of her album by KOCH Entertainment for the USA and JVC in Japan is awaited.
