Imposter Syndrome - Sophie Lloyd's Pioneering Odyssey in Modern Guitar Artistry

Sophie Lloyd emerges as an emblematic talent in the world of contemporary guitar, pushing the boundaries traditionally associated with "bedroom musicians."

Educated at the distinguished BIMM Institute with First Class Honours in Popular Music Performance, Lloyd has been a prodigy in the making since her youth. With a following that transcends 3 million fans across social media platforms, she has established her name through an unbroken chain of guitar "shredleys," covers, and groundbreaking originals.

Not confined to individual accomplishments, Lloyd has parlayed her rising fame into partnerships with industry titans like Amazon Prime, Hard Rock Cafe, LiveNation, and Harley Davidson. She offers an exclusive guitar curriculum via Truefire and left an indelible impression on the fashion world with a performance at Paris Fashion Week for Redemption Brand Clothing. In a pioneering move, Lloyd launched her signature guitar with KIESEL, becoming the brand's inaugural female artist collaborator.

Having recently completed a stint as the lead guitarist for multi-platinum artist Machine Gun Kelly's Mainstream Sellout World Tour—with sold-out bookings at legendary venues like Madison Square Garden and Wembley Arena—Lloyd is on the cusp of another career-defining moment with her debut solo album.

Early releases have already received universal acclaim, featuring collaborations with industry luminaries such as Matthew K Heafy, Nathan James, Cole Rolland, and Michael Starr. The album also boasts contributions from additional musical powerhouses including Lzzy Hale, Chris Robertson, Tyler Connolly, and Brandon Saller.

Endorsed by authoritative music publications (NME, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Total Guitar, Guitar World) and with frequent spins on leading radio stations like BBC Radio One and Planet Rock, Lloyd is poised for exceptional success. Her debut album, "Imposter Syndrome," promises a captivating lineup of tracks:
