LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Catchy, empowering and full of attitude!
Hi Sandra, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
My name is Sandra North and I’m a born and raised Swedish country artist. I started writing lyrics as a teen but it didn’t turn into songs until I started pursuing a career in music upon my move to LA in 2016.
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released on June 17, 2022. I’m so happy to finally have this song ready for the world to hear! It’s been one of my favorites ever since my guitarist created that first riff a few years back. It’s extremely catchy and full of power and attitude and it’s been really exciting seeing it come together. There’s a lot of rock in me so with songs like these I get to express myself in a different way and bring out the fierce and tough girl inside, which is very liberating.

What is your vision for this song?
“Gone” is a strong independent breakup song. I wanted an empowering anthem for the listener to draw strength from to hopefully impart the wisdom and clarity to put yourself first and walk away from things that aren’t good for you.
What is your favorite part of this body of work?
I love the whole sound and feel of it. The catchy hook, the rhythmic claps, the lyrical message, the amazing guitar solo. What stands out from the rest of my songs is the outro part in this one though. As a vocalist it’s fun to do different things and challenge yourself and those last rapid lines were just amazing to create! Keeps the song interesting the whole way through and ends it on a high note.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming events?
I’m hoping to be able to get you all a music video for “Gone”. I already have the concept in my head and a space in mind so we’ll see if we can get it done.
Being back in Sweden this summer also gave me the opportunity to play at some Country Festivals! June 30th we did the River Valley Country Festival in Dalarna and on July 22nd we’ll be doing a show at Joce City’s Country Festival in Björkvik. We can’t wait! Stay tuned for more tour dates.
