Sophie Hintze is a professional singer/songwriter based in New York City. Sophie writes topline (melody and lyrics) for an array of genres with pop being a current main focus. There is signature continuity in her work bridging together her writing and voice, which is often described as alluringly sophisticated beyond her years.
Sophie’s charismatic singing and writing piqued the interest of BMG US in May 2014 and she was signed soon thereafter. She works with accomplished artists/writers/producers in the industry throughout New York and often travels to LA and Nashville on writing trips.
“Sophie is authentic, eager and tremendously talented in writing songs which deeply touch our souls. She lives for music, and we will work to
bring her music to a wide audience.”
~ Thomas Scherer, EVP Writer Services at BMG
“Sophie Hintze is the exception to the norm for a singer/songwriter of only 19 years old. She has a genuine depth in her writing and performances, reminiscent of some of music’s greats. We at BMG are very happy to have the chance to support Sophie at such an early stage of her career as a writer."
~ Kris Muñoz, Senior Director, Business & Legal Affairs at BMG US
“Sophie Hintze is one of those rare talents who possesses the stage presence of someone much older. She delivers the lyric with depth and soul, and tells the story in her own style. She can drive the band along with her powerhouse voice when the music calls for it, but can also hold the room in the palm of her hand with an intimate ballad. The kind of singer musicians always enjoy working with.”
– Matt Baker, Matt Baker Trio
