Here is another artist sent to me from the great people at artofbroadcast! Sheila Nicholls first started performing in Britain but now she lives in Los Angelos. Her music has that pure acoustic feel with the occasional trip hop grooves mixed in. Her lyrics are sensible and down to earth. She is a very independent artist. She has written and produced her own music as well as released it on her own label!

“After releasing two albums with Hollywood Records, I decided to lay low for a minute. I built a studio, bought equipment, and taught myself ProTools. I really wanted to expand my abilities and have more creative independence. Consequently this record took a while because I did it myself, with some help from friends. Oh and I also had a baby.”

Here are two tracks from her latest LP “Songs from The Bardo”
