The story of Sandwick?

“Music will help dissolve your perplexities, purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you”. The above quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer is the best description of Sandwick’s music.

Born as Patrick van Zandwijk in Asperen, Netherlands, Sandwick is a prolific songwriter, performer, instrumentalist, and vocalist, whose music captivates the mind, lifts the soul and gives movement to your legs.

His sojourn in music started as a member of a two-man band ‘Make it Nuclear’ (which changed its name to Approach the Sky) and ‘Light Below the Ground’, before going solo in 2013. During his solo career he also started a mandolin-rock project called ‘TuskHead’. In 2018 he released his first full-length album as Sandwick, called ‘Stone Cold Iris‘ ‘was well received and has had thousands of streams on Spotify. He has also released an acoustic instrumental EP called ‘Basic Patterns’.

He is set to release his next single ‘Green-To-Blue’ on October 4, 2019, a song that speaks about the thoughts of the mind, a must listen!
