A diamond in the rough, folk/pop singer/songwriter Sandra Dolores has been making waves throughout the central valley and Sacramento with an angelic voice and a devilish wit.

Influenced early on with vocal lessons at the University of the Pacific's Music Conservatory in Stockton, CA, singing in the church band, along with guitar lessons and choirs throughout high school, Sandra Dolores has refined her poetic, personal style. Working her way as a young woman in her 20s from the coffee shops and bars to center stage as a full-time musician at 34, leaving a marriage and day jobs to pursue her career, she uses these experiences to write relevant songs about love and life.

Shortly before the release of her first full length album Wait and See in 2011, Sandra moved to Sacramento and immersed herself in the local music scene. She is currently best known in the downtown Sacramento, CA area for hosting two successful Open Mics: The Torch Club and Old Ironsides. These weekly shows have shaped Sandra’s on-stage persona and performances into a finely crafted, unique story telling experience that is not easily forgotten by it’s listener.

"If I sense people are listening and focused, I will give short background stories on my songs, speaking lightheartedly to the crowd and to my band members. I call it having a conversation with my audience. I want them to feel like they are part of the performance. I am a story teller first and foremost. I write songs about my life, love, loss, joy and happiness." -Sandra Dolores

"Dolores emits a definitive and distinctive vocal phrasing that cuts through the clatter of conversations in a neighborhood bar, of a busy day, of a distracted life. Hers is a voice that enhances a conversation or a drive home, with a propensity to captivate." - Andy Furillo, Sac Bee

Working with 20 year percussion veteran Tony Galioto, and bassist Nate Riddle, together the three of them form a tight knit trio ensemble known as the Sandra Dolores Band. Sandra’s clear and concise vocal complimented by intricate acoustic guitar pick patterns, Nate’s warm bass tones and Tony’s closely controlled pop rhythms make this trio a one of a kind addition to Sacramento’s music melting pot.

With a catalog of songs that read like a diary, Sandra Dolores’ fearless honesty is engaging and her range is undeniable. Buy her newest album, Anima, released in early 2014 and available on iTunes.
