Sandra Piller Reveals What Happens ‘When the Lights Go Out’

Sandra Piller's new music video shows lovers' fireworks.

Sandra Piller’s new music video shows lovers’ fireworks.

LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 6, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The moon shines brighter and the sparks really fly in the latest music video from country artist Sandra Piller. “When the Lights Go Out,” a song written by Jane Bach, Kelly Fitzgerald and Piller, celebrates the magic that occurs between lovers when they’re alone and they turn down the artificial illumination to make some sparks of their own.

“I love the images of the moon and the fireworks in this video,” Piller states. “I think everyone who’s ever been in love will feel the same way.” Most of the video displays various artistic renderings of hearts while the lyrics of the song fly into view.

The song appears on Piller’s recent EP, “Love Goes On,” which the singer has dedicated to the memory of her late husband, Michael, a man fondly remembered for his scripts and production of 356 episodes of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and “Star Trek: Voyager,” as well as the screenplay to the motion picture, “Star Trek: Insurrection.”

A fan of country stars like Reba McEntire, Crystal Gayle, Patsy Cline and Kenny Rogers, it was the music of The Judds that inspired her to sing. “Country music is about genuine emotion for the joys of being alive,” says Piller, who embraces songs that communicate directly.

Raised in Southern California, she has the vocal talent and life experiences of a Nashville veteran. “I was brought up in the city, but I must have picked up my Mom’s southern accent because people thought I sounded ‘country.’ Plus, I really enjoy the storytelling aspect of those songs.”

Sandra signed her first single song contract as a songwriter with legendary Sun Records icon and country music producer Cowboy Jack Clement, and for the past several years she has collaborated with Nashville songwriting pro Jane Bach (Reba, Collin Raye, JoDee Messina).

Sandra Piller is on Shady Hill Records (www.shadyhillrecords.com) and more information about her music is available there as well as on her own web site (www.sandrapiller.com) and her Facebook and Google+ pages.

NoHo Goes Nashville as Jane Bach, Sandra Piller and Special Guests Perform a Songwriter’s Round at The Other Door

Jane Bach, Sandra Piller, Jim Huff, Kaela GardnerLOS ANGELES, Calif., May 13, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Songwriters getting together to share their work in the up-close-and-personal setting of a “round” is a Nashville tradition that’s now coming to The Other Door in North Hollywood in a special Thursday evening performance on May 16 featuring Jane Bach, Sandra Piller, Kaela Gardner, and Jim Huff.

“It’s exciting to bring a songwriter’s round to NoHo,” notes Jane Bach, organizer of the event with Piller Sounds Music (www.pillersoundsmusic.com). “There is an intimacy to a round that you won’t often find at most clubs.” This special one-time performance will feature four singer-songwriters: Bach (www.janebach.com), who has flown in from her Nashville home for the event; Shady Hill Records artist Sandra Piller (www.sandrapiller.com); Ohio-born country girl Kaela Gardner, who grew up singing in church and has recorded with Disney, Disney Radio, Saddleback Church, and Upscale Records; and Jim Huff, who has written songs with Joe Bonamassa, Holly Brook (performing as Skylar Grey), Franky Perez, and Louise Goffin. Scott McLaughlin will be featured on guitar.

Bach wrote one of Reba McEntire’s biggest hit songs, “The Last One to Know.” She also is the writer of hits for Jo Dee Messina, Ray Price and others. Frequently appearing in songwriter rounds all around the country, Bach will be the evening’s host as well as one of the performers.

Piller will perform numbers from her latest full album, “Days Like These,” and her 6-song EP, “Love Goes On,” which is dedicated to her late husband, Michael. “While it’s great to see fans of my music, it is so uplifting to see people who feel so close to Michael for all his great work,” Piller adds. “When Jane and I appear at Star Trek and Deep Space 9 conventions, the people who remember Michael with love just make my day.”

A strong supporter of the Nashville songwriter-in-the-round format, Bach says “You never know when you’ll be hearing a song that will become the next big hit.” The Other Door event will follow the classic format of the round, with all songwriters on stage at the same time. A writer plays one of their songs, followed by the next writer, and the next, and so on. “The camaraderie and sharing is a delight to watch,” Piller notes.

The Other Door is located at 10437 Burbank Blvd (just East of Cahuenga Blvd.) in North Hollywood. Phone: (818) 508-7008. The club has a full bar with free parking in their lot and on the street. There is a $10 dollar cover. Showtime is 9:00pm to 10:15pm.
