Hello world! My name is Sheila Star Rose. I am originally from Saginaw, Michigan and moved out to California in 2006 to attend a music production school called Pyramid. There I learned about the wonders of sound and was immersed into a community of music makers. It was at this time that I started writing my own songs and recording.
The piano is my main instrument along with my voice and I love experimenting with all genres of music. I knew I wanted to be a musician since I could talk and have continued to follow my path even when the road presented many hurdles.
For several years I had learning and memory issue along with a very long list of depilating symptoms. I struggled to play my own music and had trouble remembering chords and lyrics. In 2023 I went to my annual eye exam and couldn’t see the first 3 letters. To everyone’s surprise, I was diagnosed with a massive rare brain cyst. In June 2023 I had brain surgery and woke up from it realizing I was gone for the past couple years. It was similar to the sci-fi movies where the alien takes over a person's brain and they have no control. Luckily, the alien was defeated and I came back.
My new record I am currently recording is a collection of songs before and after my brain surgery. I started writing songs again one week after brain surgery and making music has fast tracked my cognitive skills and has been my therapy as I process it all.
You can stream my past and present music here on my webpage and all major music streaming platforms.
And, oh yeah….It’s good to be back ; )
