Demonstrably So .
'An indie cult artist', from the UK, producing 'singer-songwriter songs with crossover appeal....excellent songs and performance with excellent commercial value....excellent songwriting and composing talent here....this is as good as anything out there.' (GISC). Sandy is a featured artist on the Americana CD (Various Artist Compilation CD: Americana) which is also available on CD Baby. His debut complete album, aptly titled 'Demonstrably So....', is the definitive Sandy Melrose: just great songs that range across styles, each stamped with his distinctive voice. The feel is a fusion of adult contemporary mature pop with country and folk influences set in a soft rock genre. Essentially a mix of acoustic and electric,occasionally laced with some fine sax and keyboard. The lyrics are original and textured and reward repeated listening. This album has an edge which makes it refuse to lie down and be comfortably labelled, but it's warm enough to go to bed with. You should neither forget nor regret the experience. The songs are constantly engaging and other artists looking for quality songs are welcomed. They deserve to be shared and embraced. ****** Biography notes Sandy is a working musician with substantial experience.
