Sandra St. Victor (2014) Her name is Sandra St. Victor and there is no one quite like her. Recognized for her multi-faceted artistry and vocal prowess by industry insiders and discerning music buyers alike, the Dallas-born singer-songwriter has been captivating audiences with her special blend of R&B, pop, rock, gospel and jazz for over a decade now, first as a member of the innovative trio known as The Family Stand from 1988 to 1993 and then as a soulstress in her own right via her much-treasured 1996 Warner Brothers set, "Mack Diva Saves The World"... Read more Five years on, expressing a whole new level of creativity and confidence, Sandra released "Gemini: Both Sides," her much-anticipated follow-up album. Once again filled with songs that reflect the everyday realities of life, love and relationships, the record was a remarkable tour-de-force for this one-of-a-kind artist: "The album is based on the two sides of my Gemini nature: one side, with reality staring in my face which can sometimes be very bleak and hard; the other, which is the optimistic, upbeat, sacred part of me." That music would become her chosen career was evident from an early age when, growing up in Dallas, Sandra began singing in church. Inspired and influenced by a diversity of music - from the jazz stylings of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Nancy Wilson to the out-and-out funk of Rufus & Chaka Khan, The Ohio Players and Sly & The Family Stone along with the pop and rock of Elton John and Jimi Hendrix - Sandra's natural penchant for creativity found expression first at Arts Magnet School and then at the University of Kansas where she toyed with the idea of pursuing a career in opera: "like Miss Leontyne Price. But I realized that I would get bored because I couldn't create [with opera]... I didn't see enough potential for growth or development for myself creatively in that arena." Opera's loss was a gain for other musical genres: back in Dallas, Sandra began performing with a local jazz group known as Laissez Faire whose line-up included late guitarist Zachary Breaux. As a member of Ayers' Ubiquity, Sandra traveled throughout the U.S., Europe and Africa and in 1984, after witnessing a gig in New York, Chaka Khan asked Sandra to come work with her not only as a background vocalist but as a contractor which meant auditioning and hiring other background singers to work with the legendary performer.

Over the next three years, Sandra worked with Chaka as well as developing a deep friendship with her: "She brought a lot out of me, just about expressing what I really felt and thought and not being afraid of the consequences... In 1993, Sandra began working on what she expected would be her first solo album for Elektra Records but executive changes meant that the proposed record never surfaced. Free of her contract with the label, Sandra moved to Warner Brothers and in 1996, Sandra's brilliant "Mack Diva Saves The World" was released. Longtime friend Chaka Khan cut Sandra's "I'll Never Be Another Fool" for her 1998 set "Come 2 My House" In 1998, Sandra helped secure a record deal for the group Profyle at Motown Records and the team cut her song "Lady" for their 1999 debut "Whispers In The Dark. In addition to consistent performances in and around New York at venues like Joe's Pub and S.O.B.'s, Sandra worked with good friend Pru on a promotional tour in 2000. In mid-2000, Sandra began work on "Gemini: Both Sides" in earnest: "I was disillusioned, disheartened and hurt that my 'baby' (the "Mack Diva" album) had been in a sense thrown out of the window... At one point, I thought of doing something else...maybe being a truck driver because I love to drive! After much dues-paying, Sandra St. Victor is ready to reap her rewards as a barrier-breaking musical trendsetter whose unique artistry puts her in a category of her very own. Because, when all's said and done, there is only one Mack Diva!
