“When she grabs the cello, it’s like a sword.  She becomes Wonder Woman”  -Hans Zimmer

Sony Music is delighted to announce the exclusive signing of one of the world’s most exciting and innovative instrumentalists, the internationally acclaimed cellist, Tina Guo.

One of the world’s most versatile musicians, she is as much in demand as a soloist with Hollywood’s top composers such as Hans Zimmer, as for her virtuosic skills on classical stages.  Tina Guo can be heard on the scores to several recent blockbuster films, TV shows and video games including ‘Batman v. Superman’, ‘Sherlock Holmes’, ‘Inception’, ‘CSI:NY’, ‘Vikings’, ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II and III’, ‘Diablo III’, ‘Hearthstone’, ‘Journey’, ‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ and many more.

Equally as comfortable in classical concert halls as giant rock arenas,  Tina Guo has performed to millions of people across the globe in sold-out venues from Carnegie Hall to Wembley Arena.  She has shared the stage with some of music’s biggest names including The Foo FightersStevie WonderJustin BieberAl Di MeolaCarlos SantanaFar East Movement,Ariana GrandeSkrillex and many more.

Her debut album for Sony Music will showcase her immense talent and innate musicality and will be available in Spring 2017.

Mark Cavell, Senior Vice-President, Sony Masterworks, commented: “Tina is an amazing musician with a unique appeal across all ages and musical boundaries. We are thrilled that she is joining us on the label”.

“It’s rare to see classical being given a heavy metal makeover in quite so emphatic a fashion as with the work of Tina Guo, an international sensation.”
