INTERVIEW Sensational SOPHIE Singer, songwriter, dancer, model and mum. You can have it all! Sophie Ellis-Bextor, alumna of Godolphin and Latymer tells us how From Murder on the Dancefloor to touring with Take That. We ask Sophie about her career and bringing up four boys whilst working on her new album The Song Diaries. Tell us about your school days, did they influence your career? I’m not sure they influenced my choice of career but I did meet some of my best friends there. School was a mixed bag, I loved aspects but had a few tough bits. I think my careers advisor thought I’d end up in something to do with journalism as I was always into English and edited my school magazine. However I had other plans. Everyone was a bit shocked when everyone went to uni and I went on tour. Was music a big part of your educational curriculum? No not really. I did piano lessons when I was small and a few guitar lessons but aside from singing in the school choir I never had any singing lessons and I didn’t do music GCSE. I’m essentially learning as I go. With your mum being a Blue Peter presenter and your dad a film producer, did this impact on your choice of profession? It did in the sense that they let me feel that any job could be my job. That’s actually a brilliant gift for a kid. If they’d had more traditional jobs they might have felt more uneasy about what I ended up doing, but they were always very supportive. Was there one lucky moment in your career? I’ve had a few. The first was when I joined my first band - Theaudience - which came along via someone I met at an indie club. It hadn’t occurred to me to be a singer so I just tried it as I thought it would be a good story to tell the grandkids. I ended up finding the thing I had been looking for. Then we got a deal and that was incredible. W I NTER 18 ★ 19
