Sandy grew up in the foothills of the applachians in South Carolina, better known as The Piedmont.
Her musicial influences are: Etta James, Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Otis Redding, Elvis, Joplin, Sam & Dave, Big Mama Thornton and her Mom to name a few. The gospel influence was there as well from the “tent singings” she went to as a child. She sang in church and school events from the age of 5 and started writing at 14 when her mom gave her first guitar. Her love for music was always a part of her life, but she kept it mostly at home or among friends. Then one day in 1988 she found herself sitting in to sing a song with some friends at a local area festival. The club owner who sponsored the festival heard her and asked if she would play the club some friday night.
