Born and raised in Los Angeles, Sandra Piller has the deep vocal talent and hearty, rough and tumble life experiences of a Nashville veteran. Kindred Spirits, her second CD, is the perfect title for a collection of finely crafted songs co-written by some of Nashville's finest writers. Starting off with a surprising remake of Exile's 'I Could Get Used to You' (the first single) the album was produced by rock and country legend and pedal steel guitar master, Marty Rifkin, whose credits include Tom Petty, Dwight Yoakum, Jewel, and Bruce Springsteen. Songwriters on the CD include 25 year Nashville songwriting veteran Jane Bach (Reba McEntire, Collin Raye, JoDee Messina) and Carol Chase (longtime member of Lynyrd Skynyrd). Reaching into her own family treasury, Sandra puts a signature country spin on songs written by her mother-in-law, Ruth Roberts, the famed sports songwriter of Meet the Mets and It's A Wonderful Day for a Ballgame (the Dodger's theme song). Uplifting yet soul-searching lyrics characterize Kindred Spirit's thoughtful and heartfelt songs and upbeat, danceable tracks pay homage to Sandra's loyal following of swing dancers in Los Angeles. A CD that at once embraces joy and pain, it proves to be the sweet awakening of a talented singer and songwriter.
