R&B/pop singer Sandra Bouza has a lot to offer through her music and life experience. On her forthcoming LP, Falling Away From Me, produced by Hill Kourkoutis (SATE, Jules) and available in January 2020, the Toronto native who has lived, studied or worked all over the world, lets her stories breathe in songs that are deeply personal.
The album’s eight tracks together build on the deep grooves of her previous EP Three Years, showing off Sandra’s sultry, soulful vocals. But what really shines through, on standout tracks such as “Almost Love,” “Losing You” and “East Side Woman,” is Sandra’s ability to lyrically examine relationships from all angles—from the thrill of discovery to the fallout of poor decisions. These are songs rooted in hard-earned experience, a badge of honour Sandra wears with pride.

As she’s proven over the past two years, Edmonton singer-songwriter Andrea Nixon is an artist who believes that one’s life and one’s music are inseparable. That was the foundation of her acclaimed debut album, Diary Of A Housewife, and those who have yet to check it out have another opportunity now with the release of its latest single, “Stronger Than The Storm.”
It’s unfortunate timing that the song arrives immediately after Hurricane Dorian, but its message of hope can offer solace to those affected, and to anyone else going through challenging times.
You can get “Stronger Than The Storm” from iTunes, and hear it at Roots Music Canada by clicking below.
