As Seen on Today's Country Music Video

New Music Sunday – Sandy Kastel’s New Video For ‘Indiana Rain’ October 10, 2010 Sandy Kastel is a new face to me. I wasn’t familiar with her until I received an email from AristoVideo, a Nashville-based independent music video promotion firm. This song is called Indiana Rain. After doing some research online, I found out that Sandy is actually a former Miss Nevada, former Miss America contestant, an author, singer-songwriter, and a motivational speaker. As you’ll find out from her website at www.SandyKastel.com, Sandy’s a pretty talented woman. Enjoy a look at her latest music video for Indiana Rain! Bookmark and Share. Like what you see here?

"Beyond the Sea" to AC Radio

Las Vegas Singer/Songwriter/Performer and Former Miss Nevada
SANDY KASTEL
To Release First Single To AC Radio--'Beyond The Sea' From Upcoming Album
This Time Around Which Was Produced By
Nashville Based Dove Award Winner Daniel Posthuma (Shirley Caesar, Crystal Lewis, Debby Boone)


Sandy Kastel will be releasing her first single, Bobby Darin's "Beyond The Sea" off her upcoming album This Time Around to AC radio in mid-March, followed by the much anticipated album release due in late spring. This Las Vegas-based singer/songwriter/performer pays homage to Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Wayne Newton, Peggy Lee, Johnny Mathis, Dinah Washington/Celine Dion and Judy Garland on This Time Around.
 
Ironically for a project that’s so Vegas-centric, it was recorded in Nashville with some of that city’s top session musicians under the guidance of multiple Dove Award winning producer Dan Posthuma, well known in the Contemporary Christian and Gospel music worlds for his work with Debby Boone, Bryan Duncan, Shirley Caesar and Crytal Lewis. Posthuma was introduced to Kastel by renown booking agent Miles Bell (Kool and the Gang, Commodores, Menudo) and played a key role to the launch of Kastel's musical career.
