Sheila dedicated this album to her deceased mother and called it I Wish You Love. Sheila is one of those impressive singers who can instill a beautiful warm delicacy into the ballads (such as Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man and Wild is the Wind, and also a gutsy energy into the blues (such as Trouble in Mind and I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water). Every performance is a gem, and the band back her with great feeling and sensitivity. Several of  the tracks on the album are seldom heard songs but are attractive all the same, such as Leon Russell's Hummingbird and Johnny Mandel's Close Enough For Love.This is a truly impressive first album for Sheila. Everyone involved is extremely proud of what has been achieved. For Graham it was a real labour of love since he did the arrangements, recording and mixing (over several months). The album can be purchased on the CDBaby website, or through the Sheila Waterfield website. Here are some audio clips

This is my first piano trio album. It celebrates two important things in my life.
Firstly I have six wonderful grandchildren who give me great pleasure with their unlimited supply of fun and energy. I'd like to think that some of my love of music (particularly jazz of course) has fed through into their genes. Four of them have just started to learn the piano and seem to enjoy it, so things are promising! As a rather personal grandchild celebration this album features an original jazz composition for each of them, attempting to reflect their particular personalities.
Secondly, having moved from the Midlands to Frome in Somerset, I have been fortunate in quickly meeting up and playing with an abundance of talented local musicians. Two of the best, Ralf and Rob, are featured on this album and it has been a real pleasure to regularly gig with these guys during the past year and to record this album. All of the tracks were first takes recorded in my home studio in one day. It was a very productive session and I'm pleased and proud of the results.
Here are some clips from the album.  GD
