Five Minutes With: Toronto Soul Artist Sandra Bouza

Sandra Bouza is an award-winning Independent Roots Soul artist with decades of live performance experience and a powerful voice not easily forgotten. She cut her teeth performing in Toronto and Vancouver clubs and then spent three years honing her craft overseas in Europe and North and West Africa. Her wealth of life experience is evident in her well-crafted and poignant lyrics.

Upon returning to Canada, Bouza invested in her songwriting career and immediately received recognition winning the 2019 Toronto Blues Society Talent Search and representing Toronto at the 2020 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Her EP “Three Years” received significant radio play in Canada, and her following FACTOR-funded album “Falling Away From Me” received Canadian radio play and rave reviews in Europe. Bouza has recently been nominated for Maple Blues “Best New Artist” award.
