“Boho chic soul folk carried by dangerous lyrics, hypnotic grooves, and a seductive voice”
Singer-songwriter Sandy Powlik has been turning heads for years. From fronting a 17-piece big band to co-founding and being sole lyricist for original folk rock group, Sonnenblume, to running the show for over a decade as Lola Parks – she continually progresses and evolves.
A multi-award winner, including “Most Outstanding Musician" “Female Songwriter of the Year” “Band of the Year” (100.3 The Q!, 1999) with her first band, Sonnenblume), her 2011 release, Here, garnered three Vancouver Island Music Awards nominations and continues to receive international attention.
Some BUZZ around this leading songstress:
● “All This Time,” off The Hustle (2017) is CBC’s all-new 2018 “The Early Edition” theme song
● Kids’ song, “Levidrome Song” (2018) is feat. on CTV News (Vancouver), Global News (Toronto), internationally on Twitter and 3,450 views in 5 wks on YouTube
● “Trouble with Me” off Here (2011), is feat. in indie film, T he Orchard (2016) and short film Ryan & Lola (2014)
● “When Comes the Change” (1999) airs on TV’s Higher Ground
Sandy has performed on five continents, led several Western Canada tours with her trio and shared billing with numerous Grammy and Juno winners and nominees.
2019 finds her working on her next album, TV/film writing (hopefully stints in LA), recording techniques and playing across Canada on VIA Rail.
Sandy's music is: sultry, organic, natural, jazz-infused, smooth, soulful, genuine, evocative, dangerous and fun.
