Sandra's music career began as a graduate with honors from the illustrious Recording Workshop. This landed her the position of assistant audio engineer at Refraze Recording Studios in Dayton, Ohio. This was the home of 1994's Last Splash album by The Breeders. Her time behind the console there lead to a friendship with producer, Freddie Wall (Robert Palmer), who encouraged her to head south to Nashville. Once arriving, she worked for several years at Island Bound Music Publishing and the House of Blues Nashville as a studio manager. After some years in the business, Sandra finally decided to open her own recording facility, Cylo Recording Studio. During her time in Nashville, Sandra assisted on projects with award winning producers and engineers such as: David Z (Prince, Johnny Lang), Jay Joyce (Patti Griffin, The Wallflowers), David Leonard (Barenaked Ladies,The Go Go's, Hootie and the Blowfish), and Brett Maher (Jo Dee Messina, The Judds).
