Los Angeles, CA – Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Sandi Thom is pleased to confirm the August 14th release of her fourth studio album “Flesh and Blood.”  The album was produced by the Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson and was recorded at 16 Tons studio, Nashville, Tennessee. This is Sandi’s fourth album following 2010’s critically acclaimed “Merchants and Thieves.”The first single, “The Sun Comes Crashing Down” will be available as a free download on on Monday, May 21st.

Best known for her 2006 No.1 hit single I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair), Flesh and Blood is a significant release, being Sandi’s sophomore studio album, released solely by her independent label Guardian Angels
Records (distributed by Nova through Universal Music Operation). The highly anticipated new album radiates the raunchy blues-­rock bravado of the opening track Help Me, followed by the country flavored Leadbelly classic In The

The album also features the strutting, clavinet led Stormy Weather; and the emotionally compelling finale Lay Your Burden Down. The new album features an all-­star ensemble led by Black Crowes Rich Robinson, drummer Steve Gorman and fellow Black Crowe and widely travelled session guitarist Audley Freed, respected Nashville stars Mike Webb (keys/Dobro) and James Haggerty (Bass) complete the line-­up with special guest appearances from acclaimed singer-­songwriter Buffy Sainte Marie and famous Rolling Stones collaborator, the legendary saxophonist Bobby Keys. “Sandi really stretched herself and made a bold new album,” reflects Rich Robinson, “Her songs are honest, vulnerable and very strong.

Her vocal abilities are showcased really well, as is her guitar work, and harp
playing. I think Sandi’s made a great record. It was a joy to work with her.” Legendary classic rock producer Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes, Joe Bonamassa) also mixed two tracks, Sun Comes Crashing Down and a duet with Buffy Sainte Marie on the latter’s classic song, Big Ones Get Away. “Sandi’s writing is fantastic,” says Shirley, “and her singing is wonderful. Sun Comes Crashing Down has all the right ingredients to be a hit.” The intriguingly titled I Love You Like A Lunatic, is based on her “life-­‐changing” love affair with superstar blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa. The couple has been together three years now, living and loving on and off the road. Sandi likens it to a modern day Johnny Cash and June Carter fairy-­tale. “My life just turned crazy,” says Sandi. “Yet that’s what everybody wants, that insane kind of love that utterly consumes you.”

Sandi feels that Flesh and Blood is her coming of age album. “All I ever want to do is write songs that connect with people,” says Sandi. “With this album I’ve finally found a place where I can make the very best music I can achieve. The people that only know me from Punk Rocker won’t recognize me on this album. But they are going to find out another side of me.”
