British guitar virtuoso Sophie Lloyd has just released a new song titled “Fall Of Man Ft. Matthew K Heafy”. It is the second single from her upcoming debut album and she has collaborated with TRIVIUM singer Matthew K. Heafy for an epic metal journey.
“Working with Matthew K. Heafy has been a dream come true!” Sophie says. “TRIVIUM have been one of my favorite bands since I was a kid, I used to dye my own TRIVIUM t-shirts and wear them every day.”
Matt adds: “Sophie Lloyd is an immensely talented force of a musician and songwriter. I recall first seeing Sophie‘s guitar playing online and being truly blown away — so having been a fan of Sophie‘s for several years, I was honored when asked to guest on an upcoming track. When I learned that TRIVIUM had been a longtime favorite band of Sophie‘s, I was humbled and appreciative.”
Lloyd is one of the most prolific guitarists on the world wide web, a trailblazer who is redefining the concept of a “bedroom” guitarist. A talented composer and accomplished musician, Sophie graduated from the prestigious BIMM in 2018 with a First Class Honours BMus in Popular Music Performance, honing and refining a talent she has nurtured since childhood.
Since then, she has amassed the kind of following that even the guitar gods she grew up idolizing would be envious of, with a reach surpassing three million followers across her social channels, built through a steady stream of sharing her talent via guitar “shredleys”, covers and her own original material.
Most recently, Sophie could be seen shredding on stage as guitarist for multi-platinum recording artist Machine Gun Kelly on his recent “Mainstream Sellout” world tour, which included sold out shows at legendary venues such Madison Square Garden in New York and Wembley Arena in London.
At 27 years old, Sophie Lloyd is just getting started, with work on her debut solo album in progress and a few others items to tick off her bucket list.
