Sophie Villy (GE)
A stunning milllion colour personality, who is an enchanting, beautiful woman and a strange, powerful, provoking man at the same time. Not by any accident she is the favourite of Brian Eno, Nick Cave and many more. Her support will be by the charming Georgian Sophie Villy led band that comes to the Ship from the Ukraine.

Sophie Villy (GEO)
In her 23 Sophie Villy remarkably promising singer/songwriter is well known for her unique performing style. Her latest single "Connected" was listed in the "Best must listen tracks of around the world" by the Guardian. Minimalistic arrangements, vintage guitar's instinctive twang and soulful timbre of voice open up another deep world, full of grace and intelligence nurtured in the bohemian quarters of Georgia. Her debut album Mother Fish (2012) takes a wide range of private stories to the outside world. We hear both, the voices of modern neighbors and the echoes of twelfth-century Georgian poets; wholly sincere, full of incisive observations. One of her most acclaimed singles "Position", released after the US tour, is louder than any revolutionary speech, this is why it's played on air of KCRW by legendary DJ Chris Douridas. Sophie is a special guest of many film festivals and art shows. She composes soundtracks for French and Georgian films. 2014 must be very productive for her. Second album "Dress" is coming out this spring, following shows in NYC and LA. On March 3rd, after the concert in London, Villy is opening a show for Anna Calvi in Budapest.
