"Music is a language of the human spirit. I can't imagine a world without music and love lifting people up through the power of song!" - Sandra
Seattle's own pianist-singer Sandra Locklear is both musician and singer with a natural gift for connecting with her audiences. With intuitive ease and passionate virtuosity, Sandra pairs a rich alto voice with jazz piano stylings refined over many years of playing venues in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, Canada and Europe. She effortlessly crosses over from jazz to blues, to folk to country, to pop and to rock with a technical proficiency honed since she took her first piano lesson at age seven. As a performer Sandra sets a fresh standard full of vitality and soul.
Shimmering with sensuality and the voice of experience, Sandra performs with Inner Circle, her top-flight band of professional musicians, or simply solo. Either way, the sheer diversity of Sandra's repertoire makes her musical presence stand out from many of her contemporaries. She performs a tremendous variety of genre based upon her jazz and classical roots: the Great American songbook, fresh swinging jazz standards, Broadway showtunes, sexy bossa novas, riveting ballads and she even writes her own songs.
Sandra is available for bookings either as a solo singer-pianist or with her jazz group Inner Circle. She can provide a state-of-the-art PA system and keyboard and is willing to consult with her clients about special music for their event
