Artiestinformatie

Geboortedatum   16-02-1977
Land   Nederland

Sandra van Nieuwland is geboren in Delft, studeerde muziekwetenschap en was te horen in verschillende bands. In 2011 staat ze in de kwartfinale van de Grote Prijs van Nederland en brengt ze als Sandra Newland haar eerste single uit.

Nederland leert Van Nieuwland kennen door haar deelname aan het derde seizoen van het tv-programma The Voice Of Holland. Ze haalt de finale niet maar is wel de meest succesvolle deelnemer van het programma.

More is de eerste single die in september van 2012 de Top 40 weet te bereiken. De single is nog steeds haar grootste succes in ons land.

Eind 2012 is ze de eerste Nederlandse artiest die met drie singles tegelijk in de Top 10 staat. Alleen The Beatles en Bruce Springsteen hebben een dergelijke prestatie neer weten te zetten. Vrij snel daarna verschijnt het debuutalbum And More. Vijf singles van het album stonden tegelijkertijd in de Top 40.

In november van 2013 verschijnt haar tweede album, Banging On The Doors Of Love. Daarvan zijn Hunter, Always Alone en het titelnummer de eerste singles.

In oktober 2015 is Sandra van Nieuwland terug met een nieuwe single, Truth.

Songtekst

I spent my time, watching
The spaces that have grown between us.
And I cut my mind on second best,
Oh the scars that come with the greenness.
And I gave my eyes to the boredom,
Still the seabed wouldn't let me in.
And I try my best to embrace the darkness
In which I swim.

Now walking back, down this mountain,
The strength of a turnin' tide.
Oh the wind so soft, and my skin,
Yeah the sun so hot upon my side.
Oh lookin' out at this happiness
I searched for between the sheets,
Oh feelin' blind, I realize,
All I was searchin' for, was me.
Oh oh-oh, all I was searchin' for was me.

Oh yeah, keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
No, no, no, no, keep your mind set, keep your hair long.
Oh my, my darlin', keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
Na, oh, no, no, keep your mind set in your ways.
Keep your heart strong.
Now I saw a friend of mine, the other day,
And he told me that my eyes were gleamin'.
Oh I said I'd been away, and he knew...
Oh he knew the depths I was meanin'.
And it felt so good to see his face,
All the comfort invested in my soul,
Oh to feel the warmth, of his smile,
When he said, 'I'm happy to have you home.'
Oh oh-oh, I'm happy to have you home.

Oh yeah, keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
No, no, no, no, keep your mind set, keep your hair long.
Oh my, my darlin', keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
No, no, no, no, keep your mind set in your ways.
Well keep your heart strong.

'Cause I'll always remember you the same.
Oh eyes like wildflowers, oh with your demons of change.

(Keep your head up)
(Keep your heart strong)
(Keep your head up)
(Keep your heart strong)
May you find happiness here.
(Keep your head up)
(Keep your heart strong)
(Keep your head up)
(Keep your heart strong)
May all your hopes all turn out right.

Keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
No, no, no, no, keep your mind set, keep your hair long.
Oh my, my darlin', keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
No, no, no, no, keep your mind set in your ways.
Keep your heart strong.

'Cause I'll always remember you the same.
Oh eyes like wildflowers, oh with your demons of change.
