"Vocal Coach to Beyonce', Solange, Demi Lovato, Mario"

"Sophi has one of the most distinctive voices that I have had the pleasure of working with in my more than 20 years as a vocal technique teacher and this is obvious to anyone who hears her original music. I’m not given to faint praise, but when someone of Sophi’s abilities and drive comes along, it’s hard not to predict great things in her future. " - Tom McKinney, Vocal Coach


"Vice President MACH 1 Ent. - Los Angeles"

"LIVE IT UP" - "I like the melody, it's catchy and the chorus really hits hard when it comes in. I definitely think you have what it takes in all areas to be a pop star and a great writer!" - Chris Heintz, Vice President MACH 1 Ent.

THE NEXT POP STAR IS HERE: MEET SOPHI - SKOPE Magazine


"SOPHI Named Best Vocalist"

““Make You Feel My Love” was originally recorded and released by Bob Dylan on his 1997 album Time Out Of Mind. It has since been covered by major artists such as Adele, Kelly Clarkson and Billy Joel, yet Sophi still manages to create her own, distinctive rendition. Sophi's vocals come through clearly, with an expressive, soulful performance.”
- Dale Kawashima, Label A&R Exec & Music Publisher, Singer Universe (Feb 10, 2013) - Dale Kawashima


"Eye Rocks Radio"

"You could easily be forgiven when you listen to this finely tuned well crafted singer /songwriter with this great rocky sound , for thinking this could have taken the best part of the last decade to perfect ! But what I found truly amazing when reading was this brilliant young female artist was not only just thirteen, the vocals, compositions and over all sound was way beyond the years of someone so young ! I have high hopes for this extremely talented young lady and her gift ! A true star is what springs to mind and a very bright future awaits in this industry ! This is not the new AVRIL LAVIGNE . This is SOPHI with a sound all of her own !! " ~L.Perry - Eye Rocks Radio - Eye Rocks Radio


"Selena Gomez reveiws SOPHI"

"Very Nice" - MySpace


"7 Sounds Production"

"Simply Beautiful, you have a heavenly voice, keep up the fantastic work, and to me, you don't sound like any of those other artists, YOUR ORIGINAL" - 7 Sounds Production

Bio

SKOPE Magazine describes this 2015 International House of Blues Music Forward Artist as "The Next Pop Star". Label A&R Exec, Dale Kawashima reviews SOPHI's cover of "Make You Feel My Love" and states "Make You Feel My Love was originally recorded and released by Bob Dylan on his 1997 album Time Out of Mind. It has since been covered by major artists such as Adele, Kelly Clarkson and Billy Joel, yet SOPHI still manages to create her own, distinct rendition. SOPHI's vocals come through clearly, with an expressive, soulful performance." 

SOPHI is alternative pop singer/songwriter from Houston, TX. She has received an incredible amount of accolades from prestigious songwriting and performance competitions including being recognized as a 2015 & 2014 semi- finalist for the Unsigned Only Music Competition in three different categories— Pop Top 40, Teen, and Vocal Performance. She was also selected as an International Songwriting Competition Semi-Finalist for her song "Like Me", a 2013 Breakout Artist of the Year Finalist, and a "Global Emerging Artist" by Sony Music. She's the youngest artist to ever win "Best Vocalist of the Month" by SingerUniverse and her single "Like Me" was featured by the Daily Unsigned Radio to millions of drivers of cars manufactured by Honda, Ford, Porsche and more through their AHA stereo platform. Most recently, SOPHI was selected by Live Nation and the House of Blues as an International House of Blues Music Forward Artist. SOPHI is currently #1 on the Reverbnation Independent Pop Charts in Houston and has continued to rank in the top 20 Nationally and Globally for the last two years. With YouTube uploads scoring over 1.9 million views, fan counts rising over 225,000 on social media sites, and over 860,000 plays on Reverberation, SOPHI is quickly becoming known worldwide.

SOPHI began performing and writing songs at an early age with a variety of influences from U2 and Sting to Johnny Cash. Her original track "Free for the Moment" that she wrote at age 12 was selected by Union Square Media & DirecTV for their Gone Until December series on women surfers. In 2011, SOPHI was selected as Music World Entertainment’s (run by Beyonce' & her father Matthew Knowles) pick for their Kids Jamz Pop CD and was also chosen as one of the International Songwriting Competition’s “Crank Your Cred” Finalists for her song "Boy in the Hallway". SOPHI's a natural in front of a camera and on the stage. While her passion is singing, she also loves to write, act and dance. 

Over the past few years, SOPHI has evolved into a powerful and exciting performer with headlining shows throughout her home state and beyond—including performances at Music Week during South by Southwest, the House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, Music World’s House of Dereon (run by Beyonce' & her father Matthew Knowles), Six Flags Over Texas, SpringBoard South Music Fest, Texas Children’s Festival, the Austin Ice Cream Festival, Sony Headquarters NYC, Hollywood's SIR Studio, The Biz School Hollywood, the Tunes for Tots Tour Nashville, and many others.
