‘With Creatures of My Mind, Sobi has presented herself as a wistful, delicate singer-songwriter effortlessly weaving gossamer acoustic guitar with sanguine vocals in this wonderful second EP.’ – The Modern Ape
‘Morning Light is a good example of her soulful voice and insightful lyrics, which come together to revitalise a classic folky sound.’ - Fearghus Roulston, Clowdy Blog
‘Just Like You, bringing to mind the introspective soul-searching of Laura Marling’s early recordings, is a personal favourite.’ - Fearghus Roulston, Clowdy Blog
‘At first listen the songs on Sobi’s second EP, Creatures In My Mind may seem like the kind of laid back music that would be played in the background of a coffee shop, yet on deeper inspection the lyrical themes, as well as their support from the backing music, tackle some mature subjects for someone so young’ – No Place like Tone
Supporting Villagers at the Epstein Theatre, Liverpool :
‘Charming the audience with both her line of patter and beautiful tracks such as Just Like You and closer Crawling, Sobi‘s name will be one we hope to see among the Liverpool listings again soon.’ – Emma Walsh, Get Into This
Supporting Liam McClair at Rooftop Live, Manchester;
‘Her songs with just her on an electric guitar work wonderfully well, they are set into stark focus, such as Just Like You where she lifts the song in the chorus by the power of her voice alone.’ – Even the Stars
