SKOPE Magazine describes this 2015 International House of Blues Music Forward Artist as "The Next Pop Star". 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.”
