Sandy Dillon is an American singer and songwriter. She has released several solo albums, describing her music as "jazz-punk western blues", and has also worked with Ensemble Modern and Man Parrish.
Born near Cape Cod, Dillon took up piano at the age of 6, and studied Orchestral Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, before moving to New York City where she lived at the Chelsea Hotel. She played Janis Joplin on Broadway in Rock n Roll: The First 5,000 Years where she was spotted by Tony DeFries, who had managed both David Bowie and Iggy Pop. Defries steered her to Elektra, for whom she recorded two (unreleased) albums Candy From A Stranger (produced by Man Parrish) and Flowers (co-produced by Mick Ronson and Dieter Meier), those songs previewed in a performance at Ronnie Scotts alongside Ronson on guitar. Elektra released her third set as her debut album.
