Music For Your Heart

Music For Your Heart is the alter ego of Sandra Zettpunkt. Her coaxing timbre slips into the ear, suggesting thoughts fed on experience and expectation – mostly in English, sometimes in German. Time and again, stunning vocal harmonies arise from the substrate to open up familiar territories, a voice couched in transparent arrangements.

Playing all of the instruments herself, discounting the occasional guest presence of a double bass, Sandra weaves a timeless and sensitive fabric of sound embellished with a thread of nostalgia

On Turning Marvel sounds something like Cat Power meets Camera Obscura in the middle of a field of heather. It's pastoral and folky in all the best ways and sung in an absolutely perfect English accent. On Turning Marvel is truly beautiful stuff that's far more than just your average folk pop record.
