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, Rovi

You are very talented love your music
She is a demon on any percussion she touches.
I saw her at The Roxy in NYC back then (1984). It's a dance club where she was performing. Prince came crawling out from behind the curtains and everyone 'bout lost they minds lol it was awesome. She is a fab performer.

I GREW UP LISTENING TO GREAT MUSICIANS SHE `LL GET HER DUE.
I LOVE HER PERCUSSION
she deserves more credit.
What these fuckets dont know before they gave prince all the credit is sex cymbal never charted due to the fact that she was hospitalized mid tour due to a collapsed lung and she threw her back out. It took her 5 months to learn how to walk again. She is a female artist pioneer and she can bang the hell out of a drum
