    Although she likes singing since her very childhood, things became more serious when she met Fredric Wurtz (Franky Vincent) at school, he was then her music teacher.

    He made her become aware of her pretty voice and a very good vocal technique, her passion for singing took its full meaning from that moment.

    Sandrine joins choruses and singing groups that lead her to perform frequently on stage.
    At the same time, the continuation of her studies leads her to put music on hold.

    Destiny overtakes her at the end of 2001, as Franck Gerber, artistic coordinator of  the morning NRJ (the 6-9) at the time, offers her the opportunity to work with the show’s team on the recordings diffused by the radio.

    After this experience, that she describes as « very fun, very rich, and very positive », she decides to join a school for singing to learn « the profession » : theatre, scene expression, voice techniques, etc…

    She begins the activity timidly, in small steps when she realizes that she has as much fun playing with words as she does singing them and in no Time at all, she finds herself with thirty texts; so she looks for composers to put her lyrics to music.

    Atypic, utopic, atomic and unique…, it’s with these words that begins one of her new songs, revealing all the aspects of her personality.

    She will bare her soul in order to transmit more emotion on stage.
