Sheila is an all-black, all-female, three-piece trio based in Washington D.C., originally classifying themselves as Alternative (not necessarily writing music to fit a genre but write what comes to heart) at the start of their humble beginnings. These ladies have shifted direction and allow the listeners to interpret what they hear; sometimes being called rock, hard rock and/or AFROPUNK. Their music draws on the experiences of being young millennials, the intersection of being a black woman in today’s polarizing society, trying to find their musical voice in a mostly male-dominated misogynistic industry, and on the overwhelmingly unreported experiences of other marginalized communities. For Sheila, these women aspire to be the representation so needed in rock.
