Sandra Marlowe Bio

Singer and performing artist Sandra Marlowe brings presence, power and sass to the stage. With a background from classical and opera to Broadway and belt to R&B and blues, Marlowe’s foray into jazz debuted center stage in 2012, with a CD release, “True Blue,” garnering national and international acclaim. Another CD in 2020, “The Heart Always Remembers,” featured her skills as a songwriter/producer. Marlowe is an evocative singer with impressive technique and serious “chops,” expressed in the emotional and physical range she brings to each song. Her world-class voice captures audiences, while a warm wit and engaging personality draw musicians and audiences together in soul-revving moments. Marlowe performs at clubs, festivals, events, theaters and arts centers around the U.S., and is a featured guest artist with symphonies and orchestras. A music director and voice teacher, Marlowe advises and produces recording projects for fellow artists, releasing music and media projects under her label, LoveDog! Media. She is the originator and producer of “What She Said/The DIVAS! Concert,” an all-female cabaret presenting women’s perspectives through stories and songs, featuring seven divas from six decades performing five genres of music, singing it like it is!

“A rare voice capable of caressing the lyrics and reaching high notes with ease . . . “

“The focus everywhere in True Blue is Marlowe’s voice, and she’s capable of covering a lot of ground in knowledgeably superb fashion…convincingly. That’s the key. As golden as this CD is, I suspect we’ve only seen just heard the tip of the iceberg.”
– Mark S. Tucker, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
