MOBO Award nominee Sandra Godley returns to Nashville this week to record her 4th Album “Diamond Fusion”. Following the success of her previous album ” Miracle”, which earned her the MOBO nomination, Sandra is set to blaze a trail again with her unique sound working with some of Nashville’s best musicians.
“I’m stretching the boundaries with this project by fusing soul, gospel, pop and dance together with a contemporary sound. The lyrics are honest, tackling subjects like broken friendships, saying sorry and I’ve also included a love song”, she told us. Born into a family of music lovers, Sandra’s greatest influences in music were the likes of Oleta Adams, Aretha Franklin, Amy Grant, Andrea Crouch and Nat King Cole.
Not only has Sandra been busy song writing over the last 2 years, she has also put her voice to radio presenting with regular shows for UCB Radio. She explained, “I decided to get some coaching and business advice to see what my main strengths were. Thanks to some great mentors I could see that I’m a communicator through song and word. Radio presenting is just an extension of my voice and it fits in well with my mantra- ‘Always have something to sing and always have something to say’.”
She’s also passionate about mission and is a Trustee of Feed the Hungry, a global charity which does exactly what it says on the tin, declaring “I don’t think you can be a Christian artist and not have a heart for mission. Mission keeps you grounded and pushes you not to hold onto your microphone so tightly!”
Her role as Executive Director at Coventry’s iconic Albany Theatre sees her showcasing many up and coming talented artists, which for her is a way of giving back.
Through her many contacts and connections, executive marketing and events knowledge, Sandra has become a trusted ‘go to’ person within the industry. Her vast experience includes performances at The House of Commons, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Premier Radio to name a few. Her multiple music awards give testament to her many achievements.
Sandra is signed to US label, C&C Music Group based in Nashville and will be joining a distinguished panel including Lauren Evans and Anthony David King at the 2nd annual Music & Media Conference hosted by aStepFWD. It takes place at the prestigious University of Westminster in the heart of central London on Saturday 23rd September 2017.
She sent us this message, “I’m really looking forward to taking part in this year’s Music and Media Conference and know that there will be something there for everyone. This is a great and much-needed initiative and I can’t wait to see everyone there!”
