Sandflower wearing Tanielle Lobo
It's been a while since a girl emerged on the scene who could rock you like this. Hailing from Brownsville, Brooklyn and daughter of rock Goddess Dk Dyson (original lead singer of Living Colour, Eye and I, original writer of Madonna's "Dress You Up In My Love", and co-founder of the Black Rock Coalition) Sandflower is out to break barriers. This chick writes her own songs, plays the bass and keys, and creates her stage show with spunky individuality. She's got a sass and fire influenced by a range of artists from Cindi Lauper to the Jackson 5. But what does the name Sandflower mean? It means you've got to bloom where you are planted and persevere no matter what the odds. And that's why Sandflower brings a refreshing originality.
