Waking Up- Sept 2000


Feeling a bit camera shy


Charmed. It’s quite inevitable. One simply cannot resist falling under the spell Sheila O’Donnell casts when she parts her lips. She has been blessed with a voice that fills one’s life with vibrant waves of love, light and angelic rejoicing upon first listen. She is a channel of pure, delightful magic and passion. What a treasure for us all.

Sheila’s cultivated a unique musical style that speaks to her colorful, textured life. It begins with her Irish heritage, which afforded her a rich musical upbringing. Her father Sean , an accomplished Irish folk musician from Donegal, Ireland, and wasted no time watering the roots of his first born daughter (of seven). By the time she could talk, singing became a way of being for Sheila.

Raised in the suburbs of Chicago herself, Sheila was deeply inspired to share her gift of song with the world while traveling throughout Europe. Swooned by the streets of Italy, Sheila began performing on street corners, cafes and parks with a newfound zeal. Ah the romance.

Sheila offers a full spectrum of personality and style throughout the ‘She-She’ experience, much to the delight of her audiences. While her voice blends world, folk-rock, Celtic and pop styles, it’s the precious moments of her inner-self that truly capture one’s heart.

She’ll engage you one moment with her childish, playful innocence, filling your ears with a language all her own. All the while, one cannot help but fall into her enchanting sensuality, as it oozes from her essence, dripping from her song.

Influenced by the likes of Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLaughlin, Sade and Basia, Sheila has received loud applause following her debut release ‘Waking Up’ in November of 2000, turning heads with several hot movers on "Beautiful" was #2 on the Soft Rock Chart, "Waking Up" was #4 on the Folk Rock Chart and "Water is Wide" was #3 on the Celtic Chart.

Sheila moved to Los Angeles In October 2001 and continues wooing audiences with her live performances at such renowned venues as The Viper Room, The Knitting Factory, The Joint, Genghis Cohen, Molly Malone's, and in November of 2003 she was a featured act at the VH-1 Save the Music Foundation party in Beverly Hills. She is currently recording her third album "Clear" to be released in April 2006 and the early word is that it is pure angelic prayer.
