Sandy was born into a musical family. Her mother Mary taught her and her four siblings piano and music theory. Both her parents had/have beautiful voices. Mary and sister Jane sing with the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir. Brother Dan is a professional trumpet player and created an all-natural, healing lip balm called Chopsaver. Musicians and non-musicians alike love it!
Growing up in Elkhart, Indiana, Sandy sang in choral ensembles in school. After graduating from Indiana University, she sang lead in rock and roll cover bands, including Dual Purpose, Hit ‘n Run, and Class Action. She also sang jingles for radio and TV and on original album projects. Sandy was a founding member of Heart 2 Heart in 2005, and has enjoyed playing for special events at venues including Hillcrest Country Club, The Stutz Artists’ Open House, the Palladium, JW Marriott, Midland Arts & Antique Market, The Propylaeum, The Villa, Crooked Stick Country Club, Carmel Farmer’s Market, Blackhawk Winery, Chef Joseph’s Restaurant, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Marco’s Restaurant, and for various fundraisers, receptions, and private parties.
Percussionist John Trimble became aware of Heart2Heart through original keyboardist/co-founder, Dana Spence. John is the composer, keyboardist and drummer for his long-time ensemble, The Demand Badger Octet, and had Dana play keyboards on several tunes for their last two CD’s, “The Third Floor” and “No Opera.”
Wanting to return the favor and being a big fan of Heart2Heart, John actually took up congas to allow sitting in with Dana and Sandy as drum set would not be appropriate. John loved both the song choices and the sound of Heart 2 Heart and soon became a permanent member.
