Warner Chappell Music and Ross Golan‘s Unknown Music Publishing have signed a global publishing deal with soulful country singer-songwriter Sophia Scott.
With a sound comprised of country, pop, rock, and R&B influences, Scott has built a following with songs such as “Side Effects,” “White Fence,” “Drink Too Much Wine,” and “She Ain’t Me,” the latter of which has amassed over 12 million streams on Spotify alone. The Nashville-based songwriter signed with EMPIRE Nashville in 2021 and has since opened for the Jonas Brothers and Kelsea Ballerini on the “Remember This” tour.
“Sophia Scott is one of the most authentic, exciting, and refreshing artists I’ve ever come across,” shares Golan. “She shares the attitudes of Loretta Lynn and Linda Ronstadt with a modern twist. It’s impossible not to love and respect her musical perspective. I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Sophia to the family.”
BJ Hill, VP of A&R at WCM Nashville, adds, “I remember the first time I saw Sophia sing her songs at a small songwriters round and how moved I was by the emotion. She has stories to tell in her music that will become a part of our lives. Her voice is pure and amazing. We are very lucky to be working with her, Unknown Music, and her awesome team.”
“I still remember the very first song I wrote. It was called ‘Cool Coffee Shop.’ Even as a second grader, I knew exactly what my life would look like and that I was destined to sing and write music (as cheesy as that may sound),” shares Scott. “After years of pouring my heart and soul into music, I can’t believe that little girl is now a published songwriter. Not only do I get to work with the best publisher in Nashville, but I also get to work with one of my biggest songwriting heroes, Ross Golan. This partnership is a dream come true for me. Thank you to BJ, Ross, Kelley [Fox], and everyone at Warner Chappell & Unknown Music for believing in me. I feel so incredibly blessed and can’t wait to begin this new journey.”
