Sandy Simpson was born in the U.S. At the age of
ten he moved, with his missionary parents, to the islands of Palau in Micronesia.
He was home schooled through the seventh grade, then attended and graduated
high school at Faith Academy in the Philippines. He attended college in
the U.S. and on Guam, studying music and theater. He was one of the first
artists to write and record what is now called "contemporary christian
music" or CCM, starting in 1969. He started numerous groups after college,
doing concerts in many places. He subsequently established a commercial
jingle company that was one of the first of its kind in the Pacific Northwest.
During this time he also met Jeff Johnson and began producing and writing
albums with him for Ark Records. These albums were then distributed by
a number of major labels such as Sparrow Records and Meadowlark Records.
Sandy put together Outrigger Productions and Outrigger Records to produce
his own solo albums as well as do commercial advertising projects. During
this fifteen year period he produced many albums of his music as well as
others, countless national and regional jingles, multi-media slide show
music, and industrial and feature film scores. He was also married to his
wife Rose and now has three children. Sandy became a missionary with the
Liebenzell Mission USA in 1989 and was involved in ministries of all kinds
on Guam and throughout Micronesia. He also produces video and audio productions
for the mission and Pacific Islands Bible College. He has been instrumental
in bringing speakers and artists to Guam, and is active in coordinating
many youth related outreaches. He is now based out of Oahu ministering
to Micronesians, doing Bible studies, visiting the sick, and continuing
to do discernment ministry. His goal is to reach people with the
gospel message -- that Jesus Christ can create in you a new person if you
will simply confess your sins, believe that He paid the penalty for those
sins by dying on the cross for you, believe that He rose again to provide
you eternal life, and follow where He leads.
