Gwendolyn Sanford is a daughter, a sister, a mother, a wife, a friend, a lover of Nature, a songwriter, a gardener, a TV/film composer, a reader of scientific studies, a voice-over artist, an activist, a hiker of mountain trails, a thespian, a collector of beautiful dresses and old folk records… although not limited to and not necessarily all in that order.
Her latest release Bright Light follows her pursuit of love, marriage, and motherhood. A tribute to LA’s Country/Americana music scene, Gwendolyn and producer Ethan Allen selected songs naturally lend themselves to the style. In addition to the core Gwendolyn band, the album features the musical talents of Josh Grange, Tony Gilkyson, Paul Lacques, Evo Bluestein, Cliff Wagner and Tim Weed. With harmonies sung by I See Hawks In LA and members of The Living Sisters.
You can hear Gwendolyn’s signature sound on Showtime’s hit comedy Weeds and more recently Orange is the New Black. With her partners Brandon Jay and Scott Doherty, they work to create underscore for the show. Brandon and Gwendolyn also composed music and lyrics for ROMY AND MICHELE THE MUSICAL, which opened at the 5th Avenue Theater in Seattle, Washington, June 8th, 2017.
