The partnership of John "Sandpaper" Colella and Melanie "Lilt" Ruane was formed in Los Angeles, California in the summer of 2011. The psychedelic influenced undertones and heartfelt baritone vocals of Colella brilliantly juxtaposed with Ruaneā€™s harmonious ethereal vocal styling add splashes of light and energy throughout the Sandpaper & Lilt song line up.  Sandpaper & Lilt's debut album "O" is a poetic voyage of the "he said/she said" and the two meeting in the middle. The lyrics are well crafted, poignant and further exemplify that the human condition is eternal. "O" conjures an organic hybrid of American Indie Pop/Folk Rock that evokes the spirit on many different levels.
