Rock 'n' Reel - Issue 24, Spring 1996

SANDY ROSS is an American songwriter/performer who benefits from an absolutely superb production job and the friendship of a superbly sympathetic group of musicians who add melodic colour to her occasionally heart-warming, occasionally heartbreaking songs that cover the intensely personal with the power and understanding of real experience. Added to that she's also a fine guitarist and possessed of a robust voice full of warmth and all these points in her favour combine to make 'Portraits of Innocence' one of the most impressive singer/songwriter albums to appear from America in the last year. From the evidence on offer it's only a matter of time before her material joins the repertoire of many performers looking for exceptional material.
