    Sop

    Sop is a London based musician, artist and writer who currently plays in punk bands Woolf, Child’s Pose and Dead Mans Float. They come from the queer and DIY punk scene and have been active in these scenes for the past ten years.

    Sop was also diagnosed with Inflammatory Arthritis ten years ago. This has led them to become an advocate for awareness on having a chronic illness, which is often invisible, and how one can navigate this in grassroots music scenes where often no formal or financial support exists.

    They use their experience directly in lyrics, often bringing the message of the ‘sick’ to the stage, and investigate how living with a debilitating illness can actually become a positive, unique and creative way of seeing the world.

    They were on the committee for the first two years of DIY Space for London, the cooperatively, volunteer run venue and social centre in South London and worked with Attitude is Everything to achieve Bronze accreditation for the venue. They also worked with them in the planning stages of In-Sight, the festival held there to celebrate the voices of disabled and chronically ill artists in the DIY scene where they also took part with a talk and performed with Woolf.
