Sophie, a nineteen year old, originally from Malta but based in the United Kingdom, has successfully reached the semi-finals of the Open MIC UK Songwriting Competition, days after making it through to the upcoming edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the track Let the Sunshine In co-written with Lou Mullen, Alexander Dew, and Adam Packard. At the beginning of the process for this songwriting competition, there were about 9000 entries, with Sophie being the only Maltese act. She is now a stone's throw away from the Grand Final of this contest and up against some of the best emerging writers in the UK.

Bursting onto the local music scene is no mean feat, and at a young age, Sophie was one of those artists who showed a lot of promise and went onto represent Malta at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the track Extra Cute, which achieved a mid-table showing. Since then, she has collaborated with a number of local and foreign songwriters and released several singles, including some incredible cover versions. In 2011, she tried to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest with the track Love to Love You which she co-wrote with Elton Zarb, winning songwriter of this years’ edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
