Jazz vocalist Sophie Milman is a Russian born jazz vocalist who currently lives in Canada. After emigrating from Russia in the early 1990s, Milman, who is of Jewish heritage, spent most of her childhood years in Israel where she listened extensively to jazz. 

Sophie is also a student of commerce at the University of Toronto. What that has to do with music? Practically nothing. 

In 2004, a chance performance at "Real Divas" night (a local Toronto jazz series) brought Milman to the attention of producer Bill King, who then secured a few showcase performances. Subsequently, Milman signed a recording contract with Linus Entertainment and released her self-titled debut album. Take Love Easy is her latest release.

She won a Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year for "Make Someone Happy" in 2008.

Sophie has proved that blondes aren't always dumb. Apart from having a degree, she is also a successful singer who has won a spot on our favourite new singers.
