Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Sandra North
Sandra North started her early musical years in Sweden, singing in church choirs and school ensembles. It was clear at a very young age that singing, dancing and performing was all she wanted to do. She slowly worked her way into the music scene by booking bands and artists for music festivals and doing various production work on TV shows. In 2015 she finally took the step to move to Los Angeles and pursue her dreams of developing herself as an artist.
Although raised in the far north of Scandinavia, Sandra quickly discovered her love for country music. Small town life, big dreams, hardships and heartbreaks all appear reflected in her music and writing. After performing around LA for the past 4 years Sandra has established herself well in the Country scene in California. She is currently collaborating with numerous musicians to continue to grow and create her own music.

The highly anticipated second single “Same Story ‘Bout a Broken Heart” was released on Feb 7th 2020. It’s upbeat country/rock character reflects a new side of her artistry and writing and speaks of disappointments in life and love. With radio airplays all over the world in Scandinavia, Europe, Australia and the US and three song nominations for music awards the success was a fact. Interviews and podcasts overseas in Sweden also lead to a live stream with the West Coast Country Festival this summer alongside established artists such as Jamie Meyer & Jay Smith.
