ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sheila's sound is a unique blend of jazz, folk, soul and blues. She is an accomplished, award winning vocalist and a very popular performer at music venues and festivals. She is one of those impressive singers who can instill a beautiful warm delicacy into ballads and a lively, spirited energy into the blues. She received raving reviews for her performances at The Festival of Song Cheltenham, Jazz Live Grimsby and Big Band Festival Aberdeenshire.
'A beautifully warm, expressive voice' - Ron Bailey, Jazz Live.

Sheila was born and grew up in Coventry, England and is the youngest of seven sisters, many of whom are accomplished musicians and singers. The family was largely influenced by Sheila’s Mother who grew up in a large traditional Irish family where music was part of everyday life. Her Father was a naturally gifted and talented singer and sang the songs of Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra effortlessly. These early influences of Irish, folk and jazz set the scene for Sheila’s musical journey thus far. Sheila demonstrated her love of singing from a very young age which was encouraged by her Irish Mother and from the tender age of seven, performed at festivals and competitions in England and Ireland. By the age of twelve she was featured on Radio Eireann having won the title of ‘All England Champion’ in traditional Irish singing. Sheila was also part of The Shannon Youth Ceilidh Band with whom she regularly sang and played the Irish whistle.

From the early 90’s Sheila found herself to be an in demand vocalist, from original projects to high end function work, providing lead and backing vocals for many of the UK’s top bands. She was invited to perform at The Millennium Dome’s closing ceremony in 2000 which is her largest audience to date.

2013 saw the release of album ‘I Wish You Love’ – produced and arranged by jazz pianist Graham Dent. The collaboration took place in the spring of 2012 when Sheila decided that she wanted to a produce a musical tribute to her Mother who passed away from dementia in 2010. The album also features Mike Green (bass), Andy Davey (sax), David Williams (guitar) and Steve Street (drums and percussion).

In 2015 Sheila released album ‘Reverie’ featuring the fabulous talents of John Hodgetts (piano and keyboards), Federico Girlando (drums and percussion), Adrian Litvinoff (double bass), Si Hayden (guitar), Ian Chalk (trumpet), Gary Barnacle (tenor sax) and Alan Wakeman (soprano sax). The album combines jazz, swing, funk and bossa to create a fresh take on some classic songs.

Sheila has been privileged to have worked with many wonderful musicians to include Ian Hill, Nick Millward, Wayne Matthews, Neil Hunter, Ian Beestin, Geoff Pearson, Carl Hemmingsley, Tom Bull, Steve Salkind and Stuart Barker to name a few. Her band line-up can be anything from a piano/vocal duo up to a 17 piece big band and she can be seen performing around the UK with various projects at festivals, jazz venues and corporate events.

Sheila has several recording projects nearing completion - in addition to this Sheila is currently successfully collaborating with musicians on her original compositions and is looking forward to an album release and tour, watch this space ........
