With her smoky-soulful voice and hypnotic, jazz-infused arrangements, Sophie Coran‘s “All That Matters” is a song of obsession…with a twist.
The twist? It’s not about love nor any of the usual subjects that haunt good music. No, it actually tells a story of the seductive world of the restaurant industry, describing how easy it is to get lost there while also revealing Coran’s intimate relationship with food and drink.
Sadly, we know little more of this, but the song speaks with its own eloquence:
I’ve become so wrapped up in it
I’ve forgotten what’s important
Holding on, can’t seem to quit it,
You’ve become my something constant
Whether or not you share Coran’s attachment to all things culinary, her music has the capacity to transport listeners to a sultry blues bar, somewhere familiar yet a long way from home.
“All That Matters” is the second single release from her forthcoming sophomore EP, and we’re happy to premiere it here today.
A classically-trained composer, Coran applies her skills to enrich cleverly-layered arrangements, allowing her cocoa-smooth vocals to slide effortlessly through the song. With a style honed through performances in her home town of Philadelphia and as far afield as London, New York, and Copenhagen, although there are no forthcoming live performances listed on her website, it’s worth keeping in touch through social media to see where Sophie Coran will be entertaining the world next.
