Sandra Swannell's rich alto voice has been described as "hot buttered rum". She is a classically trained violinist/ violist, but her style owes much more to Folk, Jazz and Blues. Her diverse musical background ranges from recording with Canada's legendary Stompin' Tom Connors to writing a series of musical sketches for string orchestra. Sandra was the principal violist of the Georgian Bay Symphony, and fronted the Celtic art-rock band, The Shards before joining Tanglefoot in 2005.

Terry Young's tremendous dexterity and aggressive approach to finger-style guitar has been described as "virtuosic" by BBC critic James Harrox, and "jaw dropping" by the Folk & Music Exchange. During his Tanglefoot years, he gained a reputation as a talented multi-instrumentalist; performing on guitar, mandolin, banjo, and whistles. Terry is also a classically trained tenor and holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Western Ontario.

As My Sweet Patootie, Terry and Sandra have been forging a solid reputation for delivering polished, completely entertaining and memorable live concerts. In October 2011, they were awarded a showcase by the Manitoba Arts Network.
