Tongues and Tails turned 30 this year and Sophie B Hawkins celebrates by going out on the road. She will be stopping by the Dakota Jazz Club on Friday, December 2nd
30 years ago, Sophie B. Hawkins burst onto the international music scene with her platinum-selling debut album, “Tongues and Tails.” Full of primal, fiery pop, the album was an immediate international success, earning her a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and going gold in the United States and platinum in many European countries and in Asia. The Top 5 single “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” became a radio staple, and has been featured in many TV shows and movies to date.
The last three decades have brought multiple awards, sold out concerts, appearances on film and television, performances with some of the best known names in the business, a documentary feature, a critically-lauded tour-de-force performance as Janis Joplin in the nationally-touring play “Room 105,” songs appearing in hit films and TV shows, and five more albums, including “Whaler,” which featured the record-breaking longest-running single in Billboard Adult Contemporary chart history, the Number One hit “As I Lay Me Down.”
Much more than just a singer, Sophie writes all of her own songs, is a multi-instrumentalist, and has been fully involved in every aspect of the production of her records herself, from background vocals and playing her own instruments, to engineering and production of her albums. She has proved an enduring artist with a fierce commitment to artistic integrity while both constantly evolving, and remaining steadfastly true to her own authentic history and experience which connects her to her fans at the very deepest levels.
