With no bounds, Sophie has been liberally firing jams at dance floors, working closely with Crown Ruler and various dance communities whilst being a musical friend to all. To describe Sophie McAlister’s output in just a handful of genres is to do Sophie’s craft a great disservice. She’s a purveyor of all the styles that lift your spirits and nourish your soul.
