Are you ready for Aurora 12? This is the title of Sandra's second full-length album, following the 2018 release of her debut album, Cluster Stars.
Aurora 12 is a mix of new songs, written and performed by Sandra, along with a few traditional Christmas songs presented in a way that only the award-winning singer-song writer can deliver. The songs are as diverse and colourful as Canada’s four seasons, and grounded in the inherent beauty of earth, air, fire and water – the four elements.
Learn more about the making of Aurora 12 and the meaning behind the various songs by following Sandra's blog or by reading the news release. Songs and the entire album will soon be available for public sale in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
