Sheena Bratt: Singer/Songwriter based in the North West UK
Peace, truth and love!

*** ‘My Muse And I’ is now available on ITunes and all the major online stores! ***

Since childhood Sheena Bratt (previously known as Sheena Rowley) has been passionate about the magic of music. She has worked as a Primary Teacher in the UK and has taught all ages in Thailand. She did a Post Graduate Certificate in Education with Modern Foreign Languages, after her BA (Hons) in Law & Philosophy. She sees music as an outlet for a message - of love, fun and global change & harmony.

After tinkering with many instruments, she now mostly plays guitar and sings. Her performance and writing days began at primary school and she's busked, gigged and recorded all over the place (and in other countries), solo and in bands. For herself and for charity. She absolutely loves the whole process, the writing, recording and playing live. She loves many different types of music, all kinds of things in life inspire her to write and her music has been described as folk/country/blues/indie/pop but it doesn't really fall into a set category. She has in the past recorded a 4 track CD, a live album, and recorded individual tracks with many people - including internationally successful DJs and producers Hemstock&Jennings, who she also sang live for at the Foundation in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, a big dance club. She's supported Glen Tilbrook (of Squeeze) and was also featured a few years ago at the Unsigned Showcase at Nantwich's Folk and Roots Festival. Recently, Mojo Records took an interest in her and featured one of her tracks (Fire In Your Eyes) on their webpages, she's also featured on their website as an artist they're working with. She also had a regular slot singing at The Comedy Store before she went travelling. She presented a radio show in Thailand for a while and has performed live on various radio shows, her recorded tracks have been played on various stations too. She's now very excited to be working with a new band called Gilded Rain, with other exciting projects in the pipeline, including her new solo album. She’s also recently put together an 8-piece band to give a  funky sound to her acoustic tracks. Keys, sax, harmonica, bongos, drums, bass, lead and rhythm guitars.

She feels very privileged to soon be working with Rockin Russ (DJ/Producer/Promoter) who's on the Rocked music label. Their first collaborative release will be a track called 'In  Spirit'. He and the Rocked team are 'putting Stoke back on the map' re. the dance music scene; As said by BBC Radio 1 DJ Kutski, who played a quality track of his recently. She'll also be working with James Williams (and other producers on the Airspace label) also in the Rocked crew, who is producing some equally fine dance music. A release will be out soon on the Airspace label, a track called 'With You' by DC, the vocals for which have been co-written between Sheena and the label owner.

She's equally as excited about another new collaboration, a chilled electronic project with the very talented, established dance music producer Robbie Fithon, who is signed to 6193 Recordings.

Last but by no means least, she feels hugely privileged to be being considered to play at Earthday Brasil 2011 Festival, an amazing festival for peace and global change, happening in Rio this year. http://www.earthdaybrasil.com
