                    About Shiela


Shiela is an Alternative RnB singer who's powerful lyrics and smooth sailing vocals lead fans to compare her likeness to that of Sade. The artist draws her inspiration from influences such as Kendrick Lamar, Jhene Aiko and Alina Baraz, while maintaining the Hip-Hop and Electronic connections of her youth present in her sound. 

Originally from Austin, TX, the singer-songwriter first began practicing music during her summers spent in Managua, Nicaragua. Representing a blend of Mexican-American and Nicaraguan heritage, Shiela decided to pursue music as a career while attending The University of Texas at Austin.

The songstress spent Summer 2016 performing around central Texas promoting her debut EP "Breathe." She was an Official SXSW 2017 Performer, and is now working on new projects with a variety of local artists and producers. Listen to Shiela's latest single, "Understand Me" now to get a taste of the refreshing sound this up-and-coming artist is bringing to the Austin music scene and beyond.
