Whelan’s Upstairs

Sophie Doyle Ryder is a 18 Y/O Singer-Song writer from Malahide. The Dublin born artist has drawn comparisons to Rihanna, Ariana Grande and Anne Marie.

After the success of her first two singles, she is so excited to release her latest single Too Much.  Too Much is a heart-felt empowering song about a fresh breakup, she sings as if she were speaking to him.

“I wrote the song about a relationship that was super one-sided. I felt like it was always me giving and always him taking.”.

Sophie hopes that this song can help people explore their feelings of heartbreak and healing. The confusion and conflict of wanting to save a relationship but eventually feeling strong enough to stand up for themselves.

Sophie loves artists such as Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. The authenticity of these artists is what inspires Sophie to take her personal experience and turn it into relatable music. In a short 11 months Sophie has grown into her own style of music and has found her unique sound. 2019 saw Sophie release her debut track Mood. She has been dubbed as ‘One To Watch’ by a lot of music media and promoters.

Sophie’s song writing is always personal, always about a real situation whether it’s her own personal story or a friends’. She finds that song writing is a form of therapy. She’s been writing ever since she was 10.

Sophie is very excited for her first headline show with MCD in Whelan’s (Upstairs) on 6th March 2021. It will feature some unreleased music and some epic covers with a world class band.
