Sophie-Maude Turner | Music / Performing Arts2023
Born and raised in Tauranga, I like to make music that is driven by a desire to motivate, inspire and tell my story my way. By drawing from my own life experience and liviing with Autism, ADHD, OCD and Tourette’s syndrome, I hope to be able to articulate stories and share perspectives that connect with audiences across the spectrum.
At nearly 19, I first emerged on the R&B-pop scene with singles ‘Insane’ and ‘Comfortable’, and recently featured on renowned Kiwi act Deadbeat’s new single ‘Diamonds’ alongside hip-hop producer and DJ, Joey Illah. My latest single “Take Me Away” reached No.1 on the NZ Hot Single Chart and the video is on MTV Australia! But best of all, it was played on my dream station, ZM.
2022 will see a string of new singles, a live tour and hopefully a video or two which will help me to secure a spot in the New Zealand music scene.
