Chas Sandford’s Biggest Songwriting Influences

Published on

1. The Beatles.


2. Bob Dylan.


3. Elvis Costello.


4. Eagles.


5. Joni Mitchell.


“It’s really hard to name just five,” says the man behind hits for John Waite, Chicago, Stevie Nicks and others. Chas Sandford has been part of the 30A Songwriters Festival since its inception, and he hasn’t missed a year yet. He’s been in the music business “longer than I care to admit,” playing on his first professional recording session at age 15 with Ike & Tina Turner and Delaney & Bonnie.


He’s been playing, producing and writing non-stop since then. Sandford produced Kickstand Jenny’s 2016 album and is current working with Florida’s Lawless Hearts and Nashville’s Spechlis. A third Chas Sandford solo album—Life Is What You Think It Is—is set to be released later this year.
