    Excellent Music, Brilliant Musician

    Sheila Nicholls first captured my heart with her ''Fallen For You'' song on the ''High Fidelity'' soundtrack. I was so moved by this song alone that I was compelled to buy her CD. I was more than pleased. Her voice, the melodies, the mood! She sings from the inside, and it shows. This is a wonderful disc to pop in while sitting back with a nice coffee to ponder lifes ponderables.

    I wish i could give 6 stars

    This Cd has moved into my precious circle of Ani DiFranco and Tori Amos Cd's that i rotate constantly through my sterieo. Her lyrics are thought provoking and her music has unique melodies. I love her!!!!!!!!!!

    Love her!

    Sheila Nicholls has a gorgeous voice, and sings from the heart. Her lyrics are engrossing and her singing mesmerizing. The CD is as intimate as the venues she plays in - where I discovered her - cozy and familiar.
