LA’s Sophie and the Bom Boms release debut ‘The Shmixtape’ EP

Sophoie and the Bom Boms

Her identity prior to this evocative new pop incarnation was as sought-after songwriter, earning her bread writing hits for A-listers like Britney Spears, British pop star Conor Maynard, and The Ready Set, among others. But make no mistake – this ain’t no wistful follow-your-dream template that Sophie is cooking up now.

What makes the 4 song offering so upbeat and engaging—besides the toppling beats bracing Stern’s sultry swagger—are the songs, themselves; soulfully primed missives like “Woman”—percolating drums and piano skating over Sophie’s empowering vocals.

“The Bom Boms are my backing band led by producer/multi-instrumentalist David Elevator,” Sophie explains. “He is my writing partner and produces all my songs. It’s always a surprise to me which Bom Boms are going to be at shows or rehearsals.  Sometimes it’s a big band, sometimes it’s just him.”

“Sophie Stern hit us like a brick with her catchy, infectious pop jam “Pray.” – Refinery 29

“Just when you thought things couldn’t get any catchier than Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry, or even Britney Spears (yeah, we went there…), Sophie Stern comes along.”  – NYLON Magazine

“… indeed the songwriter knows a thing about creating tunes that resonate with girls.” – Yahoo!

“Sophie and The Bom Boms will make their mark on the pop scene in the next coming months…soon become a name associated with Jessie J, Betty Who, Tove Lo, and Katy Perry.”Earmilk

“I wrote these songs as if I was talking with my best girlfriends,” says Sophie Stern from Los Angeles’ Sophie and The Bom Boms, who just released her debut The Shmixtape EP.
