She’s a Montreal native, but Toronto is where singer, DJ, and producer Sandy Duperval resides. Sandy is a devoted and passionate artist with over 13 years of vocal training, and has studied under the tutelage of the late legendary icon, Whitney Houston's mother, Cissy Houston. Since 2008, Sandy has been steadily working hard and gaining notoriety in the world of electronic music as a DJ/singer, playing in several countries around the world. Her performances have been touted as a one of a kind experience. By mixing live vocals over her DJ sets, Sandy leaves crowds from across the globe buzzing over the positive vibes resonating after each and every engagement.
Singing is Sandy’s primary love, and she touts Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, Tina Turner, Robin S, Crystal Waters, and Martha Wash as a few of her vocal influences. It was during her studies at College de Sherbrooke majoring in Jazz Vocals that she discovered the art of DJing. Under the mentorship of Hugo Lapalme, known for his exemplary DJing prowess in Quebec, she spends years improving her technique and jumps at the opportunity to demonstrate her skills in front of the camera on "Star Académie", Quebec's most watched reality tv show comparable to American Idol. However, it is her 7-year residency at the coveted evening spot College Night at Unity Nightclub that has established her as a bold and prominent DJ in the nightlife industry. Sandy is one of the very few DJ/singer artists in the industry, and it’s this unique combination that attracts events such as Montreal's own Diverscité and Pride festivals, as well as Toronto Pride's "Green Space¨ to book her as a main act to play for an average crowd of 10 000 people. As her star continued to shine, Sandy flourished and worked at some of the most respected clubs and opened for world renowned DJs such as Bob Sinclar, Showtek, Ruby Rose, Lil Jon, Carnage and many more.
Currently, Sandy is the official DJ for Universal Music/Republic Records rising star and Flo-Rida protégé Natalie LaRose, who has sold over 2 million copies of her 1st single "Somebody” Feat. Jeremih. She has toured with LaRose on the "Fifth Harmony - Reflection Tour" in over 30 cities across the USA, as well as attended and played at major events such as the US Open and "We Day", which was broadcasted live on American television. To add to her achievements, she was the headliner for the first Canada Pride, held August 2017 in Montreal.
