BMG Chrysalis US signs songwriter Sophie Hintze

MUMBAI:BMG Chrysalis US has signed an exclusive co-publishing agreement with rising singer-songwriter Sophie Hintze.  Hintze, just 17 years of age, has been widely recognized for her strong vocal talent and prolific songwriting that spans pop, rock, soul and hip-hop. While Hintze still attends high school in New York, she balances education with songwriting and frequent performances at some of the city’s most notable venues.  In addition to writing music, Hintze has been cast in leading roles in numerous productions, such as The Last Five Years, Carrie:  The Musical, Xanadu, Legally Blonde:  The Musical, Oliver!, andThe Sound of Music. 

Hintze first came to BMG’s attention through her attorney, Dina LaPolt. After hearing Hintze’s song 'Better Off Alone', both LaPolt and BMG knew they had a special talent on their hands.  BMG Writer ServicesEVP  Thomas Scherer commented,  “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.”

BMG Chrysalis US business and legal affairs senior director Kris Mu?oz added,  “Sophie Hintze is the exception to the norm for a singer/songwriter of only 17 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 and artiste.”

Hintze says, “Words can’t describe the emotions that went through me when I found out I would be signing with BMG. It is home to some of my biggest inspirations in the industry and I feel honored to be a part of the family. This is a dream come true and I couldn’t ask for a better company to represent me.”
