TORONTO MUSICIAN SANDRA BOUZA RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘SIT BY THE FIRE’
Toronto musician Sandra Bouza draws from the southern rock well on her new single ‘Sit By The Fire’. The 4th single from her new album, A Sound In The Dark, set for release on September 29th, ‘Sit By The Fire’ is a soulful song about living faster than you can handle.
“I think it’s really a song about burnout, in any industry or lifestyle, just trying to fit everything in all at once,” says Sandra. “And you always have this voice in the back of your head, or maybe a friend or influence telling you to slow down.”
Known as a musical shapeshifter, playing R&B, Soul, Rock, and everything in between, Sandra has a lot to offer through her music and life experience. Having spent a large part of her life in Spain, as well as travelling to far corners of the world, Sandra’s worldly vision is evident in her songwriting. Sandra lets her stories breathe in songs that are deeply personal.
After years of travelling, Sandra returned to her hometown of Toronto in 2018 and, within her first year back, she won the Toronto Blues Talent search and came second in the city’s prestigious Soul Slam. The early promise of Three Years, her 2018 EP, and Falling Away From Me, her first full-length album that followed in 2020, put everyone on notice that Sandra Bouza was an artist to watch.
Everything came together for Sandra during an artist’s residence on Halls Island, where she wrote most of the material for her upcoming album, A Sound in the Dark. Everyone who’s heard her sing knows that Sandra’s always been a powerful vocalist and a compelling songwriter, but with the new recording, she has truly found her own voice, and the promise of her earlier work has come to full fruition.
‘Sit By The Fire’ is available now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services worldwide. For more information, please visit sandrabouza.com.
