Soccer Mommy - 10th September - The Bodega

Soccer Mommy - twenty-year old Nashville native Sophie Allison – in celebration of today’s release of her debut album Clean has announced a full UK and European tour for this coming Autumn. She will kick-off her live plot in the UK with an appearance at Electric Fields Festival in Scotland on 31st August,

followed by dates in Birmingham, Manchester, Dublin, Liverpool, Nottingham and Bristol. She will then headline London’s Scala on 13th September, her biggest UK show date, and then round-off with a short European stint in Belgium, two shows in Sweden and one in Denmark.

Following a series of DIY Bandcamp recordings and last year’s Collection, Clean is Allison’s journey out of her bedroom and into the studio with a full band and an incredible record produced by Gabe Wax (War On Drugs, Deerhunter, Beirut) and mixed by Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey). “I’d never made a full album before, just EPs and random tracks thrown together. I wanted it to be a lot more cohesive than the rest of the stuff that came before,” explains Allison. “I wanted to make something that was a full piece of my life, that addressed similar themes and held together as a whole.” The result is Clean, an album that presents Soccer Mommy as a singular artist, wise beyond her years, with an emotional authenticity of her own.

Sophie Allison got her start in the local Nashville DIY scene, going to shows and hanging out with other musicians, though she kept her own songwriting secret. All that changed the summer before Allison left for college at New York University. She bought a Tascam digital recorder and starting releasing songs for free on Bandcamp under the name Soccer Mommy in 2015. A buzz began to grow, leading to live shows, a record deal, and 2017’s critically acclaimed bedroom-recorded compilation Collection. So Allison took the plunge - she quit school, moved back home to Nashville, shifting all her focus to music. She toured with Mitski, Jay Som, Slowdive, The Drums, and more with no signs of slowing down.

Clean - the cohesive record Allison dreamt of making - is a true step forward, a strong and mature album from an artist just coming into her power.
