Sophron Entertainment LLC was composed, produced, and published by Khalil Bishop, also known as Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, vibrancy and grit became his middle names. Most kids stayed up watching tv or reading books. When he could, Khalil pulled all-nighters arranging loops and sounds together to create musical journeys on GarageBand.
He ventured into the world of performing and went to college for Theatre - Acting. While there he landed memorable roles, including Fortune in Lynn Nottage's Ruined, Freddy in Steve Martin's Picasso at the Lapin Agile, and Belize in Tony Kushner's Angels in America. During this time, he also performed in the University's Chorale, Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and Chamber Choir, with whom he toured around Italy performing classical choir works. Meanwhile, Khalil teamed up with a couple of family members to start an inclusion-driven clothing company, Brooklyfide.
After graduating, Khalil began marketing himself in the film industry. He featured in TVONE's For My Man before moving to Los Angeles to perform in an Around-The-Clock Play Festival. His momentum was cut short when his bare wallet couldn't keep up with the steep LA life, so he moved back to Baltimore, MD.
That summer... Dreamville's compilation album Revenge of the Dreamers III, Lizzo's Cuz I Love You, Beyonce's Homecoming, Ari Lennox's Shea Butter Baby... Not to mention Nicki Minaj's Queen... Let's just say he fell back in love with music composition, production, and songwriting.
Now, Khalil combines his performance and design skills to create art designed to exhibit the nuanced twist and turns of life for intersectional communities.
This is a story of hope, resilience, and grit.
