Sandi King's Debut single

Vocalist and songwriter Sandi King released her debut single as a solo artist in 2023. “Frozen Heart” is a collaboration with two-time San Diego Music Award-winner Jonny Tarr. King is working on a longer form debut solo release for 2024.

King is the 2023 recipient of two San Diego Music Award nominations with her indie soul band King Taylor Project. She has contributed featured and backing vocals to numerous acclaimed original releases, including those of multi-award winners Joshua Taylor, Jonny Tarr, and Jeff Berkley. She is a highly active and sought after session and live vocalist in a diverse array of genres, and has performed with R&B legends The Manhattans and Heatwave.

Sandi also operates Backseat Booking, a DIY artist assistance one-stop, through which she provides everything from indie tour booking, calendar management and administrative upkeep, to lyric and performance video editing. She is also an experienced local music events planner, coordinating intimate house shows, album release parties, and small festivals.
