Sophie Callis plays a set inspired by Michael Jackson. Sophie says: At aged 7 I demanded my parents go to purchase me the 'BAD' album to play on my very first cassette player (Fisher Price)!! I remember that day so clearly. How I studied the album obsessively, creating dance routines and learning every word. Needless to say MJ has been a very consistent inspirational force in my life from a young age. To me he represents Passion, Power and Truth.
Sophie Callis has graced decks worldwide with her signature fusion of Jazz Funk, Soul, Boogie, Electro, House, Hip-Hop and World Music.
