Sophia is incredible. She has an amazing voice, super warm personality, tons of experience and to top it off, a husband who is an accomplished producer & sound engineer who is always ready with advice on song composition, the music business and the production/sound design of your song.
All in all, what you get with her is high quality, professionalism and a service that fits your needs, be it efficiency and deadline driven or more investing of time into the development of a song and artist.
Great communication, easy to work with. Defiantly recommend 🙂
Sophia recorded some harmonies for me and was absolutely fantastic! She came up with creative ideas I never would have thought of and really brought my track up to the next level, I would not hesitate in hiring her again.
I have worked with Sophia on numerous projects. She has toplined tracks for me in different genres and never fails to impress. She is full of ideas, works fast and has an amazing voice. Highly recommended.
