Sheila Nicholls début album Brief Strop has classic written all over it. Her voice contains a primal emotion that makes you instantly connect with the music.
Well thought out lyrics seduce and woo your senses as you’re taken on a journey though the light and darker sides of human nature. These reflective emotions are crafted into beautiful statements and clever lyrics that beguile the listener from start to finish and even the occasional four-letter word is well placed and used to great effect.
Sheila’s Piano is played as either the tender partner to compliment her sultry lyrics or can be instantly unleashed to form the perfect backdrop for that guttural primal urge.
Originally from Colchester in Essex (England), Nicholls now lives is Los Angeles (USA). “Fallen For You” which she wrote in 1992′ is featured on the new John Cusack movie “High Fidelity”. Brief Strop will give your mind a workout and let you senses take over for 53 minutes and 46 seconds.
