Sophie B. Hawkins

GRAMMY Award Nominated SOPHIE B. HAWKINS burst onto the international music scene with her 1992 platinum-selling debut album TONGUES AND TAILS, which included the indelible hit song “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover.” The last three decades have brought multiple awards, sold-out concerts, memorable appearances on film and television, collaborations with the best-known names in the business, an acclaimed documentary feature, a critically-lauded performance as Janis Joplin in the nationally touring play ROOM 105, and seven additional albums including WHALER, which featured the record-breaking, longest-running single in Billboard Adult Contemporary chart history, “As I Lay Me Down.”  Released in 2023, her latest album FREE MYSELF embodies a bold, new chapter of artistic perseverance and independence, while featuring some of her most soul-stirring songs about love, resilience and self-empowerment. Sophie worked with Thomas Meehan in 2012 on her very first musical but  Birds of NY is her first solo theatrical project.  She is also in the process of recording her ninth album.

Much more than a singer, Sophie writes all of her own music, is a multi-instrumentalist, and has been fully involved in every aspect of the production of her records.  An enduring artist with a fierce commitment to her creative integrity, she is also a passionate activist, who is devoted to LGBTQ+ advocacy, animal rights and environmental causes, as well as the support and promotion of her fellow female musicians.
