Sophie released her first album when she was 16. The album was collaboration with Brooklyn-based musicians One Ring Zero. She drew lyrical inspiration from her father’s (author Paul Auster) English translations of French surrealist poems. The album was highly acclaimed in France and quickly found an audience throughout Europe. Following that album, she met writer/musician Barry Reynolds who has worked with Rufus Wainright, Marianne Faithful, Antony & the Johnsons and Grace Jones and began collaborating on material.
