Hello Sandy, thank you very much for this honor
Sandy, how did you start your music career?

I started singing at the age of 5 with my brothers in a band! I was actually the backing singer. I actually started professionally in 1992 when I arrived in Italy with the producer Roberto Zanetti.

The first dance project you worked with was Double You?

Double You was the first internationally renowned dance project I worked with but before that I was part of Netzwerk and also released a single as Babyroots.

 

I know that in ’94 Dancing With An Angel was a huge hit in Italy… Did you think that this song had a potential to be a hit?

I think that when you're working on a single you never know what the outcome will be. Almost everything I sing sounds like a hit to me but that's not necessarily what happens! It was a great single though!

 

I know that you gave voice for many eurodance projects like 2 Shell, A.T. Tomix feat Salimah, Babyroots, Corona, Double You, JK, to name a few, which one was your favorite and why? And from today’s (Benassi Bros,Favretto, KMC)?

Again I love almost everything that I sing for different reasons and all of these projects were really important to me. I think that when a single is released and you hear it on the radio, the emotion is undescribable and that song becomes your favourite… until the next release!.

 

Have you been involved in the choice of the project name under which the songs that you recorded would be released?

Sometimes I have been involved right from the start but other times the project already exists and I am a featuring artist.

 

What happened after you left Double you?

Everything! My career really took off. With Double You I went on tour in Brazil for 9 months and really learnt the ins and outs of the music business. After that I officially became a recording artist!

In ‘95 you released a single under the name Sandy, called Bad Boy, was it the only single released under the name Sandy?

Yes it was actually!.

 

In ‘98 you worked with Alexia at her album The Party - how was working with her?

Alexia is a very hardworking, hugely successful singer who I admire a great deal. .

 

How did you start to work for Benny Benassi?

I have worked with the Off Limits team for many years and so it was almost a natural progression to work on a project with Benny.

 

With the project Benassi Bros you released a great song which is my favorite Illusion - who wrote that song? Does the track has a story?

Daniela Galli wrote the song and it talks about how love can sometimes seem unreal, how everything seems to run so quickly and how it would be to just stop those moments in time. Great song!.

 

Another great song that I love is Castaway. Did you think to release this track like a single?

I don't think there is any plan to release it as a single but I'm glad you like it!.

 

One of the producers you worked with said this about you: "Sandy, you have a lucky voice. Everything you sing turns to gold!". What do you think about that?

Well what can I say? I was very honoured for someone to say that about me… I don't know if it's true but I try!.

 

Did you think about releasing a solo album?

I am working on a solo album and hopefully it will be to your liking!.

 

Do you write your own songs?

I do write some of my own songs and also for other artists... mainly pop though.

 

How many songs did you record in one single day of recording session?

On a good day I have recorded 3 or 4 songs in one day but it really depends on the song and how my voice is that day!.

 

Sandy what do you think about eurodance?

I love Eurodance! It's what I've always done and it's what I do the best!.

 

Do you have a wish to sing a duo with some singers, and if you do, with whom?

Wow! There are so many people I would love to work with! Where do I start? I would love to sing with India Arie, Maroon 5, The Script, James Morrisson..

 

Do you often have contacts with other dance divas such as Jenny Bersola, Alexia or Meoldy Castallari?

Well I actually saw Jenny 3 days ago and Alexia last week! I don't have much contact with them because everyone is so busy but it's always good to see them..

 

If I had to characterize yourself in three words, what would it be?

Loud, hypersensitive, lazy!.

 

What do you hate the most?

LAZINESS!

 

Thank you so much Sandy
