Singer/songwriter Sandi Hammond first started writing pop songs at age 11. In her late teens she graced the stages of Tanglewood, Symphony Hall and Carnegie Hall while performing with several professional choral groups. Now a gifted classically trained singer/songwriter, and a fine musician on keyboards and guitar, she touches audiences with her prolific and impressive repertoire of unique melodic songs. Fans describe her versatile soprano voice as full and emotional. She is most inspired by Joni Mitchell, Bartok, Paula Cole, Annie Lenox and Elton John.
