Mobo nominee SANDRA GODLEY is returning to Nashville to record her 4th Album 'Diamond Fusion'.
'I'm stretching the boundaries with this project by fusing soul, gospel, pop and dance together with a contemporary sound,” she says. "The lyrics are honest, tackling subjects like broken friendships, saying sorry and I've also included a love song"

Following the success of her album ' Miracle', which earned her a MOBO nomination, Sandra is set to blaze a trail with her unique sound working with some of Nashville's best musicians.

Born into a family of music lovers, Sandra's greatest influencers in music were the likes of Oleta Adams, Aretha Franklin, Amy Grant, Andrea Crouch and Nat King Cole.

Not only has Sandra been busy song writing over the last 2 years, she has also put her voice to radio presenting. She presents regular shows for UCB Radio.
"I decided to get some coaching and business advice to see what my main strengths were. Thanks to some great mentors I could see that I'm a communicator through song and word. Radio presenting is just an extension of my voice and it fits in well with my mantra- 'Always have something to sing and always have something to say'."

She's also passionate about mission and is a Trustee of Feed the Hungry, a global charity which does exactly what it says on the tin.

"I don't think you can be a Christian artist and not have a heart for mission. MIssion keeps you grounded and pushes you not to hold onto your microphone so tightly!"

Her role as Executive Director at Coventry's iconic Albany Theatre, sees her show casing many up and coming talented artists, she sees that as her way of giving back.

Sandra is signed to US label C&C Music Group, Nashville.
'Diamond Fusion' is due for release early 2018.
