Toronto native Sandra Bouza (pronounced Bōh-zah) has a lot to offer through her music and life experience. Having spent a large part of her life in Spain, as well as travelling to far corners of the world, Sandra’s worldly vision is evident in her songwriting. Growing up, Sandra would spend five months every other year in Northern Spain, where her father was from and her mother would homeschool her children up in the mountains. After performing professionally in Canada for a decade, Sandra departed for Morocco where she lived and performed for three years. Within a year of returning home, Sandra won the Toronto Blues Talent Search and came in second in the Toronto Soul Slam. Newly committed to her own music, she connected with producer; Hill Kourkoutis, who produced her 2018 EP ‘Three Years’ and then her first LP ‘Falling Away From Me’ released in 2019, one month before Covid shut down the world. During a live stream concert at the Empire Theatre in Belleville, Ontario, Sandra connected with Juno nominated and Emmy award winning producer, Ross Hayes Citrullo. The two hit it off immediately and have begun working on another full-length album, expected to be released in the spring of 2023.
“There’s something in the vocals of Canadian singer/songwriter Bouza that puts a spell on me. I mean, of course there’s that huge amount of skill and the impressive range in which she sings, but that’s not it. There’s more. There’s the huge amount of passion packed in between the lyrics, there’s passion you can feel while she sings, there’s that playful approach where it feels like her voice is ‘dancing’ with the backing guitar/bass and the laid back drums. Practically everything falls in place with her performance.” ~ KMS Reviews
