Sophie Koh

New Single 'Lo-Fi' due out October 2011 Whilst Sophie Koh’s one-time wish to be a Playschool presenter never actually eventuated, she did manage to land herself on the set of Neighbours in 2010 for a musical cameo role. This opportunity led to a chance meeting with Australia’s indie-pop king, Ben Lee. A mutual desire to collaborate resulted in Sophie working with producer Brad Wood (Liz Phair/Pete Yorn/Smashing Pumpkins) at his leafy Seagrass studios in Los Angeles.

Princess One Point Five

What’s in a name?
Quite a lot actually. And sometimes not much at all. The Hebrew name Sarah indicates a woman of high rank and is sometimes translated as “princess”, described in the Hebrew Bible and the Qu’ran as the wife of Abraham.
