Having produced and played for Sandy, I can tell you first hand that her vocals are lush, warm and compelling with a great deal of stylistic range. Her songs always tell a story and are told with wit and charm. Energy and joy are hallmarks of her performances. Sandy sees life on the bright side and will not be deterred in pursuit of her dreams.

I first heard Sandy perform here in Leduc at our Performing Arts Center as part of a concert series. I left that night feeling as though I had just had my soul washed. It was quite a wonderful experience!

In my experience, Sandy understands what I need and delivers it with creativity, professionalism and intentionality to help me achieve my goals. Her passion is not just for the medium of music artistry but also for the people who will be moved by it. She knows when to be front and center and when to support from the shadows.
Sandy is a consummate professional. She’s penned an impressive and prolific catalogue and delivers performances that range in depth and emotion from quiet reflection to side-splitting hilarity. Sandy is authentically and consistently always Sandy … and that’s a very good thing!
Sandy’s rendition of the bilingual version of the National Anthem was remarkable. Her live performance was reflective of a professional recording artist. Thank you for sharing your musical gifts with us.

What impressed me was Sandy’s sensitivity and receptivity to understanding and connecting with the purpose of the evening and with our audience. She was a delight to work with because of her authenticity and the joy she conveyed in every beautiful note. The compelling original piece that Sandy wrote for the evening captured the essence of the theme of our event and poignantly described experiences that resonated with many in the audience.

Sandy’s voice gets better with time, as she displays a new maturity in terms of both her tone and phrasing. (indigo rain) is a high-water mark in her recording career, to date.
Kurt Leavins, Magic 99
… she obviously enjoys shaping strong melodies and bringing real sincerity to the material … her sound and savvy efforts at self-promotion have helped her win recognition internationally and here at home.
Roger Levesque, Edmonton Journal
Sandy can be considered among the greats of modern Canadian jazz vocalists standing beside the likes of Holly Cole, Diana Krall and Molly Johnson …
