Winner of Best Alternative Album & Best Single “Beat the Drum” Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards 2000.
2002 Juno Nominated for Best Recording of Aboriginal Canada.

Sandy Scofield is a Metis (of Saulteaux and Cree descent) artist/composer based in Vancouver. Her most recent release, Ketwam won the 2003 Western Canadian Music Award in Aboriginal music, and Best Folk Album and Best Production in the 2003 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards.

Her Riel's Road, was nominated in 2002 for Canada's Juno award for Aboriginal Music of Canada, and had already come up a winner at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, where Sandy captured a second award for "Song of the Year" for it's lead-off track, "Beat the Drum".

Sandy has fronted many bands in her day - from rockabilly to cajun and zydeco fun bands to highly accomplished folk-rock, and vocal ensembles. Sandy has performed at events like the Vancouver and Winnipeg Folk Music Festivals, Mariposa, Edmonton's Dreamspeakers International Aboriginal Festival, Seattle's Bumbershoot and the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards at Toronto's Skydome, and opened for artists such as Buffy Ste. Marie, Tom Jackson and Buckwheat Zydeco. In 1994 she released her first, critically acclaimed CD, Dirty River, followed by Riel's Road in 2000, and Ketwam in 2002. Her songs have appeared on numerous compilations totaling twelve in all.

Creatively kickstarted ever since a 1995 Banff Centre for the Arts program in traditional music, Sandy's music began to find its way into film soundtracks and theatre. As a singer-songwriter, here is a complex person who, at one moment, can sing delicate, satiny pop creating a cracked and broke down scenario, and in another she can boldly harness robust rhythm, blues and rock. Like a transforming trickster, Sandy can use melody and beautiful harmonies to carry weighty messages. Her keen ear for original arrangements, her experience articulated in powerful lyrics, and her beautiful vocal instrument combine to form a growing body of incisive musical works which touch contemporary audiences of all cultures.
