Sheila E.

Before she became a solo artist in 1984, drummer Sheila E. played with Azteca, the Latin jazz-fusion band led by her father, percussionist Pete Escovedo; she also played on two of his solo albums recorded for Fantasy Records. Prince discovered Sheila E. around 1983 and had her sing on "Erotic City," the B-side to his number one 1984 single, "Let's Go Crazy." Prince also helped her secure a record contract with Warner Bros.; she released her debut album, Sheila E. in the Glamorous Life, in 1984. Written by Prince, the title track hit the U.S. Top Ten and her second single, "The Belle of St. Mark," charted in both the American and British Top 40. The following year she released Sheila E. in Romance 1600, which featured the number 11 hit "A Love Bizarre." Her self-titled album was released in 1987, yet it didn't have the commercial impact of her two previous records. Sheila E. joined Prince's band for the 1987 Sign O' the Times tour and is featured prominently in the resulting film documentary of the same name. Four years later, she returned with her fourth album, Sex Cymbal. Despite it's heavy dance beats and vivacious compositions, Sex Cymbal failed to chart. After her brief stint ringleading the band on Magic Johnson's late-night show, The Magic Hour, Sheila E. returned to recording and released The Writes of Passage in fall 2000. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Those Beats though. Too bad this turned into a Prince tribute page. Sheila is an amazing talent on her own, despite being under the Prince umbrella.

Sheila E. and Prince are musical and theatrical magic together. They add a very special touch to radio. This song is so groovy I am at a crossroads between dancing to the awesome rhythm and sitting still to listen to every splendid sound.

Eric Clapton was once asked what it's like to be the greatest guitarist in the world. He said "well I don't know. You'd have to ask Prince.

You will NOT hear Prince on Pandora. He took all of his music off of apps and free listening stations long before he died.

Prince followed her career long before '83.

About Sheila E. Is incorrect. Prince did not discover her in 1983. She knew him in the 70's! He used to go to her house to do music before he was even known. Somebody needs to correct those lies!
