Sophie Shear


As a native Nashvillian, Sophie Shear started out as a recording “session singer” at the ripe age of 8, gaining experience in a wide range of genres and styles.

She possesses a unique and remarkable ability to “see” what’s happening inside of a voice with her ears, which makes for lightning-fast results in areas of range extension, increased power, pitch control, tone clarity, and style application. The changes are palpable. Understanding a person and communicating on their level is key to maximizing their potential, and communication is Sophie’s gift.

Despite having coached well-known artists for over a decade, Sophie rarely speaks about her client list. "I don’t want people to get distracted by the celebrity status of some of my artists, because everyone who sits in front of me is treated equal. And we want our clients who are in the spotlight to find a private, inspiring environment to strengthen their gifts."

I cannot recommend Sophie enough to vocalists who are ready to transcend to the next level, wherever they may be. She truly understands the anatomy and art of the voice.

Honestly, Sophie revolutionized the way I approach and understand singing. It's a night and day difference that I couldn't find from just reading and teaching myself.
