Sandy Spady’s upbringing in Virginia as the daughter of a pastor may have seemed like a perfect beginning to a successful career as an R&B artist, which is how Spady first began in music—starting off as a lead vocalist in Black Voices, a 100 + member gospel ensemble and forming her owned R&B and jazz a cappella group called First Class.
She went on to work with notable producers such as David Anthony, (Britney Spears, Janet Jackson) and Vada Nobles (Faith Evans, Lauren Hill), and writing songs for Indian pop/R&B artist Rushma, and Sumeet, a Canadian born Indian R&B artist who released a critically acclaimed album “Deeper.”
Spady, however, is hitting her stride these days lending her soulful vocals and creative songwriting to House and Electronica music, where she is steadily gaining a name for herself. Her vocals and songwriting are showcased in the songs “Killing Me” and “Forgive Me” released in the May 2009 Strictly Rhythm Music EPK, The Wizard Brian Cox ft Sandy Spady – Soulgasm Sessions, Vol I., and was specifically singled out by Bruce Tantum of Time Out New York’s review, who raves: "All three tracks (and various mixes) are radiant, especially “Killing Me,” featuring Sandy Spady on the mike—it’s vocal house at its dreamiest.” Spady’s song “Killing Me” was also featured on the popular Defected In the House Ibizia 09 compilation and “Forgive me” was on the Bargrooves Summer Session II compilation.
In January 2010, she released “Your Heart Is Calling You” on Daddy Funk Records, which is already generating excitement with critics and fans. Some of House’s finest producers are coveting her talents, including The Wizard Brian Cox, who is collaborating with her on another set of songs that should hit the airwaves this year. Spady is a true professional—she takes her craft seriously and can write with the best of them, while possessing a voice that recollects the legendary Toni Braxton. Her recent noteworthy forays in the House and Electronic music scene are only the beginning sparks of what is sure to be a white hot career as a versatile singer/songwriter.
