Twice Australian-Prize nominated composer-pianist. Dives into the heart and soul of the Australian land in her breakthrough new album.

A World Outside is a breakthrough album for composer-pianist Sophie Hutchings, seeing her expand into cinematic soundscapes with strings, electronics, and vocals alongside her signature intimate solo piano sound. Sophie ventures to new horizons collaborating with indigenous singers, including the highly-respected Yolngu Songman Rrawun Maymuru from Yirrkala (a remote community in Australia's Northern Territory).

An avid surfer and deep lover of the outdoors Sophie draws inspiration from the land for her new album.  
Says Sophie “This road trip was really about delving into the heart and soul of the land. Finding inspiration from its core. From the wild ghostly emptiness to its mystical other worldliness.  

It’s as though the band speaks. Whispers echoing around you as you look out beyond what seems to be an endless rugged landscape.. 

Contemplating textures of these rugged remote landscapes and interpreting that experience through music, from daydreaming through sunrises to hearing melodies in the wind…” 

“her rippling piano has an intimate, contemplative quality…a genuine sense of beauty” -The Guardian.
