Sandi Thom: guitar lady got the blues

On Monday February 21st, Guardian Angels Records will release an exclusive digital Deluxe Edition of Sandi Thom's No.1 best-selling iTunes blues rock infused album Merchant and Thieves. The album will be available to download from iTunes and other leading digital retailers.Released on February 21st, the Deluxe Edition boasts two brand new, previously unreleased studio recordings, including Sandi's breathtaking rendition of the timeless folk classic House of the Rising Sun and Warren Haynes heartbreaking If Heartaches Were Nickels.

Sandi's version of “House of the Rising Sun” was recently the No.1 single on iTunes' UK blues chart for several weeks. The Deluxe Edition of “Merchants and Thieves” also features the previously unreleased promo video for the third single “Gold Dust.”

When Sandi first released “Merchants and Thieves” in 2010, her shift from pop music to grassroots blues attracted the attention of the global guitar brand 'Farida'. Impressed by her blues guitar recordings and performances, Farida asked Sandi to endorse a new acoustic guitar they were developing - a ground-breaking new electro acoustic model.

Sandi then worked closely on the final development stages of the guitar. The official Sandi Thom signature model, the Farida SF-55ce, was premiered at the Frankfurt Musikmesse in January 2011. "I've never seen anything quite like it before" says Sandi, "I think it's an elegant looking guitar with a lot of individual features."

Don’t miss Sandi on tour in the UK during March and April at the following venues - East Grinstead, Chequer Mead Theatre (March 18), Isle of Wight, Villa Marina (Mar 25), Holmfirth Picturedrome (Mar 26), Wolverhampton, Bilston Robin2 (Mar 27), Milton Keynes, The Stables (Mar 30), Southampton, The Brook (Mar 31), Norwich, Blakeney Harbour Rooms (April 1), Braintree, High Barn (Apr 3), Oxford O2 Academy 2 (Apr 4), Bridport, Electric Palace (Apr 5), Bristol, The Fleece (Apr 6), Pontypridd, Muni (Apr 7), Shrewsbury, Theatre Severn (Apr 9) Nottingham, The Playhouse (Apr 10), and Blackburn, Thwaites Empire (April 24).more
