Sopio Murusidze is a New York-based vocalist, composer, and lyricist from the charming city Tbilisi, Georgia. She has been singing since she could speak and started training in classical piano from the age of five. Having a musically immersive childhood led Sopio to be influenced by jazz, classical, Georgian folk, R&B and soul. While attending Tbilisi State Conservatorium she had performed in the city’s major concert halls, jazz clubs and was featured in the most-watched daytime TV shows such as “Our Morning” on Georgian Broadcaster and “Afternoon” on GDS TV. In 2015 Sopio was awarded for participating in Young Musicians Contents at Movement Theatre in Tbilisi, Georgia.

 

Sopio moved to New York City to expand her musical horizon and earned her Bachelor's Degree at The New School of Jazz & Contemporary Music. During her time in New York, she has sung in diverse ensembles led by legendary jazz musicians such as Reggie Workman and Buster Williams. 

 

In fall 2019, Sopio joined Young New Yorkers’ Chorus, performing a vast variety of music, from works of classical greats to those of prominent living composers, in venues including Rockefeller Center, Irondale Center and many of the finest churches in New York City.

Sopio Murusidze was cast for a Musical Production of Shakespeare’s 12Th Night, produced by award-winning adult troupe Clocktower Players. The musical premiered on November 9, 2019 at Irvington Theatre.

 

Sopio is actively collaborating with fellow musicians using her plethora of musical experiences and influences as her inspiration to perform live music shows. Along with her live recordings, she plans to release an album of her original music in late 2020.
