The Rock-itt : May 2010
As families ate and friends enjoyed a drink, Cover Girl prepared to begin their acoustic, almost folk-like set. After a late start, due to the Tavern hosting live feed from the Waratahs game (and win) , the duo took to the stage, starting off the show with 'Brass In Pocket', letting "The Pretenders" immediately set the mood for the rest of the evening. Covering songs such as Kylie Minogue ," Can't Get You Out of My Head' and Maroon 5 ' This Love", had the crowd singing along in no time. These two managed to make these covers their own with their unique arrangements and live guitar accompaniment. Songs by artists, Bryan Adams and Fleetwood Mac were real crowd pleasers and by adding a cover from Amy Winehouse into the mix, the duo ensured all age ranges within the room were able to relate and enjoy. With a chilled and laid back feel to them, they made you feel relaxed, while performing with professionalism. Combined with excellent stage presence and crowd interaction, it was easy to have a good time. Sophia Marie's debut album, "Twisted" pulls no punches. Describing herself as a cross between Madonna and Metallica, Sophia seamlessly blends soft and hard into an exotic mix of musical emotion. The Twisted album is structured around the theme of love and loss, the songs carefully arranged to create a loose story or old style concept album. The power and intensity of the songs in the centre of the album suggest Sophia Marie has drawn on some personal experiences to create songs that should drive deep into the all but the coldest of hearts. Highly recommended!
