According to Sandy, "I was a gospel singer until I got my heart shattered in a breakup. Then I craved The Blues as an ointment for my soul." Her new January 2022 album "Feels Like Freedom" is a testament to life, living and kicking ass in the 21st century.
Sandy grew up playing piano and singing Gospel in the soulful city of Detroit. She attended Eastern Michigan University where she honed her craft in the music department. She connected with the now-legendary producer Eric Morgensen where her songwriting skills developed in the famed "Studio A".
Upon her coming of age, she and the band moved to LA where they played the local blues/rock festivals. Unfortunately before they reached any commercial success, the rigors of the music business saw the band break up and most of the guys went home to Michigan. Sandy stayed in Los Angeles and put another band together; a band with the right musical chemistry that showcases Sandy's unique fusion of Gospel and Contemporary Blues. Along the way, she has shared the stage with contemporary blues stars Teresa James, Coco Montoya, Tommy Castro, John Nemeth, and many others. As a member of Detroit's popular rock band The Rockets, she shared the stage with musical giants Joe Walsh, The Beach Boys, and Sammy Hagar.
