Sandy Nitch – Bio
Sandy Nitch a native of the Tampa Bay area and began singing at a very early age to her parent’s records and while at church. At that time it wasn’t jazz that she was listening to—it was pop, country, folk and gospel music. Throughout her school years she was involved in the music programs and performed solo and with groups honing her skills enough to be awarded a full music scholarship. She turned away many opportunities with her mindset at the time being set on building a family which led to a change in career path. It wasn’t until later in life that she read a quote by Joseph Campbell, author, which would help her to take the other fork in the road.
“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” ~ Joseph Campbell, author.
Sandy had continued to sing throughout the years albeit it was at open mic nights and karaoke. And, she continued to sing music from many genres. It wasn’t until she met her husband that she realized what she was missing out on love and jazz. Sandy believes that music always tells a story and jazz tells a love story like no other. When Sandy’s husband realized her overwhelming love for music and performing he encouraged her to perform full time. And, when she finally made the decision to let go and just do it…she found her niche.
Since finding her niche Sandy has both managed and performed with a 16 piece orchestra. And, currently sings with a jazz duo, trio and quartet and guests with other bands when called upon both in Florida and Nevada. Sandy's last album was recorded at the Sonsong Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sandy is a published poet, a watercolor artist and she strives to nurture her creative side by always continuing to learn and see things through a different lens. Today, she is working on original music and recreating some of the greats from the 70's through 90's. Sandy is often compared to Julie London, Karen Carpenter and Diana Krall—her vocal styling and sensitivity is that of a saxophone player—smokey, sultry and smooth. Sandy brings a mixed bouquet of jazz, blues, and pop with her wherever she goes, but don’t be afraid to ask for a little bit of country. Sandy Nitch is a member of the Southshore Arts Council, Firehouse Cultural Center, National Association of Mobile Entertainers, Apollo Beach Woman's club, National Notary Association as well as others.
