    Sophia is a very professional vocalist and working with her is always smooth and fun. Again she offered several variations, so I had options. I hope we have the chance to continue our collaborations in future projects.

    It was a great pleasure to work with Sophia. I became aware of her through her beautiful voice. As my song was kind of experiment transforming and merging classical elements into/with hip hop and rap she helped me with creative ideas to get ahead. She recommended a rapper and synchronized rap and her own vocals. Collaboration was easy and fun. The experiment was successful and a great song was created. I'd be glad to do further projects with Sophia and her team. Many thx to Sophia, Abi and Tim.

    A great collaboration with Sophia. She provided me with the type of vocals I had in mind for the song and it turned out very very good!
    Great communication through the process. Made sure that the vocals were as I had requested. Professional and easy to work with.

    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.
