Sandra Kaye was born on November 4, in Dallas, Texas. The only daughter of a minister, she grew up singing gospel music and was often featured in church socials as a young girl with various choirs and girl groups.
Sandra started her professional career by winning an amateur contest at the West End Cabaret Dallas, in 1987. She established herself as the consummate artist. She attributes her success to having a good rapport with great musicians, many hours of practice, countless gigs and frequent visits to open mic nights of local night spots and other American cities.
Her first experience of big band was with the Shelley Carroll Big Band and she has been featured with the Curtis Bradshaw's First Reunion Orchestra, The Dallas Jazz Orchestra, The Galen Jeter Orchestra and the Vecho Vecencio Group.
Presently, Sandra Kaye is on a 3-month hiatus from her 4-year contract at the Long Bar at the Waldorf Astoria in Shanghai, China, where she returns on October 1, 2015.
