Sandra Lilia Velásquez fronted the band Pistolera until the group relocated from San Diego. Her debut solo EP Dig Deeper (Luchadora Records), released in 2013, was produced by ten-time Grammy nominee and bassist Meshell Ndegeocello.
Her video for “Painted Pictures” was filmed in California at the Salton Sea and Sunset Cliffs in San Diego. The paintings featured in the video are by SLV’s father (Louis Velasquez), who is an accomplished painter and inventor.
Her solo band SLV consists of drummer, electronic beat maker, and composer Sean Dixon, who is also her songwriting partner, and multi-instrumentalist Mark Marshall who switches between bass and electric guitar.
