Guitarist/Songwriter/Producer/Arranger. Blending styles and cultures for years to create a diverse sound that reaches all generations and cultures. “I’ve never been satisfied with one genre. my ear goes all different directions” says Sandoval. His writing and arranging is relevant to our everyday lifestyle. “I’m much more interested in connecting and reaching people through music than showing off some kind of talent. Music is a very powerful platform that every musician has been entrusted with, and we must use it wisely”
Studied privately with Mark Whitfield (Sting, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Chris Botti), Avi Bortnick (John Scofield), Phil Forbes, Fuzz (Deep Banana Blackout, Caravan of thieves, Tom Tom Club), Jamie Begian, Chris Morrison, Chris Russo and George Raccio. “The more people I meet and connect with, the more I feel like I know nothing, which inspires me to learn even more. As a musician, I truly feel like student 24 hrs a day”
