The music bizz can be cruel. Do you remember Sandi Thom? There’s every chance that you don’t. Do you remember that song about being a punk rocker with flowers in your hair? Oh yeeeeeeah! Didn’t that song knock Ganrl’s Barkley’s ‘Crazy’ off the number one spot? Unfortunately yes. Well, the person responsible for such a heinous crime, one said Sandi Thom, is playing the Oxford o2 Academy on Monday April 4th.
Whatever happened to Sandi Thom? Well, after two albums which failed to excite the music press and fans alike, Sandi got dropped by Sony. Tragically, she then released a Best Of Sandi Thom (after only two albums?) which flopped and did not enter any chart upon release. It appears that after travelling down from Scotland to London to peruse a career in folk, the music industry chewed up and spat out Sandi Thom. Perhaps she was too naive; perhaps she just wasn’t very good. Anyway, she obviously still has some support these days as she’s still getting booked to tour the UK.
Sandi Thom will be supported by Oxford singer-songwriter Miriam Jones.
