Compared with the likes of Michael Nyman, Max Richter, Dustin O'Halloran, and Nils Frahm, Sophie Hutchings has garnered much critical praise worldwide, including MOJO Magazine declaring her work as "stirring, vigorous, [and] grandly melodic." Sophie's compositions move from the disarmingly spare and elegant to the romantic and epic, managing to be both unfussed and exquisite and in a constant state of creative evolution. Sophie has released four albums, with 2016's Wide Asleep (PRE 039CD/LP) being listed in the top 30 for The Australian Music Prize. She was also nominated in the top five live instrumentalists of the year for the National Live Music Awards. Hutchings has proven a striking live presence in Australia and Japan either solo or accompanied. With her streaming audience stealthily growing and her work gaining attention at a rapid pace, she is finding new fans - most notably in the neo-classical and ambient genre abroad. Her popularity is growing exponentially in the UK and Europe, allowing Hutchings's music to reach further than ever before.
