Outta Nowhere by Shannon Sanders
Those of you who know Shannon Sanders as India Arie’s music director also know that he was writing songs long before he wrote India’s hit songs, Brown Skin and Video. Sanders’ debut album, Outta Nowhere, which he released in 1999, shows his strength as a lyricist and features In My Mind, which he wrote with Andrew Ramsey. Some of you may remember that Heather Headley released a version of In My Mind in 2006. Outta Nowhere has several other good songs, including my favorite, Must Be Love. I’ve heard that Shannon Sanders is planning to release a second album soon. In the meantime, look for Outta Nowhere and let me know what you think.
