Biography

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.

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".

Lyrics

Medication

Written By: SOPHI

Acid laced sharp tongue
Poison water mind set
Brittle bones still young
From needles without thread
Spoon fed lies in high demand
Ties the knot on all loose ends
Let’s not pretend
That sinking ship won’t save your friends…

They’ll buy your explanation
If it’s for sale ohhh, ohhh, ohhh
We’re upside down, hanging to dry
Walking the tight rope through your simple lives
With closed eyes

Medication
Don’t let it seep into your system
Before the revelation
Medication
It will seep into your system
Here comes the revelation
Medication

Sleepless nights of pretty sin
Sugar highs and sweet skin
Absent minds wearing thin
Wasted time and time again
Wipe the blood from broken nails
Hide the facts so no one tells
Closed mouths and blank stares
But you’re numb so you don’t care

They’ll buy your explanation
If it’s for sale ohhh, ohhh, ohhh
We’re upside down, hanging to dry
Walking the tight rope through your simple lives
With closed eyes

Medication
Don’t let it seep into your system
Before the revelation
Medication
It will seep into your system
Here comes the revelation
Medication

Medication
Take it now
ohhh, ohhh, ohhh

Medication
Take it now

Medication
Don’t let it seep into your system
Before the revelation
Medication

It will it seep into your system
Here comes the revelation

Medication
