SKOPE Magazine describes her as "The Next Pop Star" adding that she's "not your average teenager by any stretch of the imagination." 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."
