Music has always been the heartbeat of Sandi Padilla, born and raised in Sacramento, California. Her first debut was singing for church at the age of six and she became a budding songwriter by age thirteen, performing at youth camps and church services. After attending Biola University and Sacramento State University as a vocal performance major Sandi's first solo project showcased her melodic and transparent pop songs in 1987.


Known for her powerful, lyrical soprano voice her range and versatility have opened the doors for Padilla to perform professionally.  She has graced the stage with well known Christian artists like Darlene Zchech (Hillsong), Ryan Kennedy, and Lincoln Brewster (Integrity). Having teamed up with keyboardist, producer and husband Steve Padilla, they have released multiple albums delivering innovative pop/rock and modern worship songs.


Sandi's involvement in the music industry ranges from working for professional recording studios and management companies to coaching recording artists and  songwriters, lending her talents as a background vocalist; to speaking and leading worship at churches and conferences. As a multi-instrumentalist Padilla plays the piano, guitar, bass, ukulele and the Hammered Dulcimer and offers high energy performances to audiences of all ages. 


Upon relocating to Colorado Springs, CO from California in late 2018 Sandi has quickly become involved in the songwriting community and sings in the fantastic 100 voice choir Soli Deo Gloria. Last spring Sandi was selected as a featured soloist in their concert  and on their CD "Hear My Prayer".  She was also part of sharing her original songs with Jared Anderson (New Life Church) at the Songwriter's Circle in the Springs to an enthusiastic full house at Third Space Coffee. Also, this past season Sandi's original Christmas gospel composition had its world premiere with Soli Deo Gloria! Listen to BORN IN BETHLEHEM on Sandi's You Tube Channel! 


Most Sunday mornings you can find Sandi singing at Heart of the Springs Church as well as streaming peaceful, healing music in the evenings over the Internet.
