SANDY SAUNDERS BAND
As a child of the south, Sandy Saunders grew up listening to country and southern rock music. As a music lover she had opportunities to meet then-upcoming artists such as Vince Gill, Patty Loveless, Garth Brooks and others.
When Sandy packed up to move to the Northwest with such memories in hand and her guitar on her back, she had no idea that she would be one to adapt such country styles to a rock-&-roll and blues format.
In 2008 Sandy, with the help of Bob Love, Chris Miller, Greg Jackson, Stevie Marie and Kevin Eddinger recorded an EP, " A TASTE OF SANDY SAUNDERS." Although "A Taste" was just a sample of Sandy's music in true country form, it introduced many folks to her great original music like "Shoot Myself", "Honey-dew" and "White Sand & Margaritas".
Sandy has now developed a style all her own that excites audiences throughout the west coast and beyond. Sandy states, “Don’t get me wrong, I love country music, but this is not traditional country music. This is flat out Rock & Blues. There just happens to be a southern girl at the wheel.”
Culture Mob online quoted that Sandy “has brought the grit and soul of her Augusta, Georgia birthplace to the Pacific Northwest.” With a unique style all her own, Sandy can blend an old Linda Ronstadt cover with a hard rock and blues Jimi Hendrix tune, adding a handful of original songs in between, and pull off a near-perfect set.
Sandy also is active with "The Northwest Womens Rythm & Blues"and can be found on any given night sharing the mic with such Northwest greats as Sonny Hess, Jim Mesi, Norman Sylvester, and many other "A" class musicians this region has to offer.
