GUITAR AND VOCALS
The very song-based music of Sandman Sleeps explores self-made rules that thrive in an introspective but inviting bubble of an atmosphere. Besides being known for their captivating performing presence, an aura of energetic melancholia charges the sound evoking names such as Pixies, The Cure, B-52’s and Throwing Muses. The band came to fruition in Nashville, TN (2009) propelled by its originators - sisters, Cristina (vocals, guitar) and Alex Peck (bass) later to be joined by permanent member Zack Jones (guitar, vocals). The project was set aside until Cristina and Alex reconvened nearly a decade later with a large catalog of songs written throughout the years which, when sorted through, became the content of their debut album 'Crisis Actor’ (2021) released as a four piece with Karsten Andersen on drums. Alex, Zack and Cristina are currently touring as a trio as well as with a family of collaborators while also recording their second album inspired by a Strawberry Moon which occurred in June 2022.
