Story of My Life EP (2008)



I'm a 21yr old singer songwriter called Sandel and like most ppl, I'm just trying forge my own place in this world and I’ve got my voice, guitar and keyboard to do it.

My songs sound just like me:

** Straight down the line with a touch of bohemia

** Realistic with a touch of idealism

** Living in the moment but prone to reflection

And when I write them, I’ve got a bit of a checklist:

I want to go beyond singing about unrequited love

I want to create pop songs that my listener’s can’t get out of their heads

I want to combine all my favourite musicians into one sound (i.e. Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Jewel, Coldplay, Tracy Chapman….) but…
I don’t want to be defined as any one of them

I want my songs to be inspired by what happens in our 21st Century lives- the good and the bad

And I want to make sure that I write them in a way that makes all those years of music practice worth it

Finally, and most importantly, I want to share my music, because I believe that the human experience is meant to be shared

So an idealist? Perhaps. But doesn’t our world need some dreamers?

Other things about me:
** Recent gigs: Opera Bar, The Piano Room, The Eastern, The Sandringham Hotel, Gaelic Club, Excelsior Hotel

** ‘Hello My Friend’: Number 1 on the Australian Internet Radio charts (May’09)

** ‘Dreams’ and ‘No Words’ both highly commended in the 2008 MusicOZ Awards

** ‘Story Of My Life’ EP: released August 2008. Recorded & mixed @ 301 Studios; featuring celebrated industry musicians Joe Accaria (drums), Alex Hewetson (bass), Chris Wright (guitar).
'Story' is an offering of acoustic pop, with an eye to the world.
