LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Fun, catchy and totally relatable!
Hi Sandra, congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released August 25, 2023. On this project I worked with several other writers around the US and Canada which was a new experience for me. The idea came from Shane Grove, who’s a close friend of mine in Ohio, and together with his team consisting of Mike Cali, Katelyn Lehner and Erik Westfall, “Shore Thing” was born.
It’s a country-pop influenced love song that captures that sweet summer love feeling and takes you on a hopeful and heartfelt journey, exploring all the emotions of a summer crush that fades at the break of fall.
It was written as a duet and I had been looking for a project just like this one to collaborate with my friend and fellow Swedish country artist Jimmy Marcus. It was just the perfect fit for us.
What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
The music industry is always gonna be filled with bumps along the ride.
I’d say keep at it and keep moving forward and you’ll eventually reach places you only dreamt of when you were little. It’s the ones that are left standing at the end of the day that will succeed in the long run.

What is your favorite part of this body of work?
I love the fact that it’s an equally balanced duet between the sexes. We really focused on that to not have it feel like it was leaning more towards a male dominant song or female. It’s simply a love song! I also believe the chorus is very catchy and the guitar driven riff really makes the song stand out and take notice from it’s very beginning. I’m also very happy with the title and word play of the meaning.
Future releases? Upcoming events?
We are still writing songs and finishing up some songs that have been placed in the backseat for some time now. Being back in LA puts me back with my team of writers again and we really wanna have some songs ready for y’all in 2024. Stay tuned! There’s always something in the makin’.
