Hi Sophie please tell us about you?
Hi! I’m 18 and I write, sing, and produce pop music.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Creative, dedicated, and focused.
How did you get started?
I started singing before I could talk, so music came very naturally for me. I started writing when I was 9 and really fell in love with making music.
When was it that you first realized that you wanted to pursue music as a career?
I decided to pursue music as a career when I started writing.
Best advice ever given?
Trust your instincts.
Do you have any music influence?
Taylor Swift was my first major influence.
Do you get nervous before a performance?
Yes, but mostly excited.
Do you have a favorite song? Why?
I don’t have a favorite song. I’ve listened to so many amazing songs in my life that I don’t think I could ever pick a favorite.
Tell us about your single “Two Young Lovers”?
I wrote it last summer and decided to release it on a whim. I started the production and uploaded the song in a month’s time. It was scary releasing it independently and I almost didn’t, but it has gone really far on it’s own and I am so happy I did it.
Now tell us about “Limitless?”
A friend introduced me to Sam’s manager over email, and I sent him the acapella for “Limitless.” I had written the song with Meron Ryan and Lindsey Saunders months earlier, but no one was interested in it. Sam ended up producing a version that was amazing, then he signed to Dim Mak and “Limitless” ended up being the first single off his EP. I am so amazed at how well it’s done and very proud to be a part of it.

What is the feeling to have a single in the Top of all the dance lists?
It is a pretty incredible feeling. Knowing that a song I loved creating with people I love to work with connected with so many people is truly the reason I write songs.
Explain your sound in 3 words?
Fun, fresh and honest.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Headlining a world tour, multiple number ones, and making a difference in the world.
Any exiting news you want to share with us?
I have new music coming out really soon that I can’t wait for you to hear, and some exciting collaborations to be announced later this year.
If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing?
What hidden talents do you have?
I am an amazing chef.
3 things you can’t leave your house without?
Sunglasses, lip balm, and my phone.
What music do you like?
Your idea of a perfect Sunday is?
Staying at home in my pajamas all day reading or watching Netflix.
How’s a normal day in your life?
I wake up around 7am, make a cup of coffee and start going through my emails. I like to get all of my business done in the morning so I have time to be creative later in the day. Sometimes I have writing sessions at 1pm, but most of the time I work alone.
What is your favorite healthy food?
A good salad.
And your favorite cheat food?
Do you support any charities?
Yes, being charitable is very important to me. I co-wote a song called “Firefly” that has been used as a theme song for ACT Today! Autism Care and Treatment and Firefly Autism. I hope to use my music as a platform to help heal the world.
What do you think of Social Media?
I think it is an amazing way to connect with people, but it can be overwhelming. It has been incredible for artists because it gives us a platform that we didn’t have before. I really enjoy social media, but I find that balance is key.
