about the human

Sandi stepped out from behind the drumset and into solo her project One Human Band, in 2013, The one human band show combines percussive acoustic guitar pop covers ranging from current to the classics, pleasing a crowd of any size and spanning many generations. Her original compositions contain clever inciteful lyrics that just about anyone could relate to. Sandi is no stranger to the stage and she loves to take requests and interact with the audience. Using a loop pedal to accompany, she could create 3 part vocal harmonies, add bass lines and take an occasional guitar solo, and once it is looped sit down at the drum set and sing the rest of the tune.

Originally from the Chicago area, Sandi has resided on the Suncoast for the past 20 years. Sandi is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist that has performed music as a solo-artist singer/ guitarist/ loop artist, bassist, and drummer in the Southeast region of the USA. Sandi has played in bands that have opened for national acts including Brandie Carlisle, Lisa Loeb, Sophie B Hawkins, The Funky Meters, and Peter Frampton.

Sandi’s current original release ‘Moving Forward’ (2021) is available for download on Spotify, Amazon, Apple, and many other music platforms. Releasing ‘Moving Forward’ was a labor of love that consists of songs written during the height of the pandemic. Sandi recorded all of the instruments on the tracks (drums, bass, acoustic/ electric guitar) wrote and sang the lyrics, and produced and arranged the release. Other catalog releases include Sun Dogs 2017, Time Flies for the Living 2015, Work EP 2014 all currently out of print.
