Hello world! I am Sandy, a 20 year old vocalist, guitarist and composer, from Trinidad and Tobago, in the Caribbean, with a love for performing and an even greater love for creating music. My real name, in case you were wondering, is Sunita Sandy Narsingh. Though I am not a formally trained musician, however, I do comprehend all the theory and science behind my work.
I discovered my musical ability at the age of four, starting with the keyboard, then vocals, progressing onward to the guitar and now with just a computer I can do full productions. My comfort zone to create falls into the rock and roll and alternative rock categories, but I also have a great liking for electronic dance music and this new genre being formed called Island Rock.
As a vocalist, my inspirations are Sia, Alanis Morisette, Joan Jett, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J and Pink! As a female guitarist, I admire Orianthi Panagaris. As a typical punk rocker, I love the style and attitude of Avril Lavigne. Music is my main passion but I am also a National Scholar pursuing a degree in Management Studies at the University of the West Indies and specializing in Marketing.
Even though I can be very competitive, I am a team player and I like to share my knowledge and inspire others. I have been performing professionally from the age of 15 and have competed at local music festivals, band slams and even a reality show called Digicel Rising Stars. Even though I did not win, I gained experience and learnt what I needed to do to improve. I have been featured in the local newspaper, the Guardian newspaper,a local television talk show, Synergy nights live, and have graced many stages across the country as a solo performer and also with bands.
I know that I am not the best musician out there but I am unique and would love the opportunity to be mentored and advanced from where I am. I want to perfect my art and I am at a stage where I need guidance so that is why I am here right now, in hope that I have what you are looking for, to be one of the selected 30 musicians for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
