Sophie Milman, cantora russa naturalizada canadense de origem judaica se constitue na atualidade como uma das mais gratas revelações do genero jazz. Além de ser um linda mulher, esbanja talento desde seu primeiro disco em 2004 e não para de fazer sucesso com mais de 100.000 discos vendidos até agora e já faturou o Juno que é um premio da musica muito importante no Canadá. E ela só tem, 25 anos.

Relativamente nova na cena jazzistica, Sophie Milman lançou o fabuloso cd "Take Love Easy", quarto trabalho de sua exitosa carreira musical no último 5 de maio que também será lançado simultaneamente nos Estados Unidos e Japão no 2 de junho.

Ouça no website dela audio-clips e entrevista em inglês. O disco está simplesmente sensacional. A leitura que ela faz de "Beutiful Love", "Where do You Start", "Triste" de Tom Jobim e "The Best is Yet to Come" já justifica a aquisição.

"Not the next Ella or Sarah but the first Sophie Milman...she is one of kind" - Don Heckman, LA Times.

Russian-born singer Sophie Milman has toured the world, won a Juno, sold more than 100,000 records - and she's only 25! Since her self-titled debut was released in 2004, it has sold almost 100,000 copies worldwide, hit the Billboard Top 5 in Canada and the Top 15 in the United States, and topped the iTunes jazz charts in five different territories. Her most recent release Make Someone Happy won a JUNO for best vocal jazz album 2008 and since then she has maintained a rigorous touring schedule across the globe – headlining sold-out shows in Canada, the U.S., Japan, and throughout Europe – and continued to balance her burgeoning music career with her commerce studies at the University of Toronto.

After emigrating from Russia to Israel with her family at the tender age of 7, then moving again at 16 to seek a new life in Canada, the transition from bookish teenager to glamorous jazz ingénue was perhaps unlikely. It was the offer of a recording contract after just three or four professional singing engagements that touched off a series of events that soon found this beautiful, multilingual talent gracing the cover of Voir, Klublife, Wholenote, and The Globe & Mail.
“(It’s Not Easy) Bein’ Green”, recorded by the likes of Ray Charles and Shirley Horn (but first made famous by Kermit the Frog), that most speaks the world as Sophie knows it and the person that her life has made her. All the moves, the migrations, the struggles, and the triumphs are summed up in the last line of the song: I’m green, and it will do fine. It’s beautiful. And it’s what I want to be. Sophie Milman, : so much accomplished, and so much more to come. In other words, exactly what she wants to be.
