Sheila dedicated this album to her deceased mother and called it I Wish You Love. Sheila is one of those impressive singers who can instill a beautiful warm delicacy into the ballads (such as Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man and Wild is the Wind, and also a gutsy energy into the blues (such as Trouble in Mind and I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water). Every performance is a gem, and the band back her with great feeling and sensitivity. Several of  the tracks on the album are seldom heard songs but are attractive all the same, such as Leon Russell's Hummingbird and Johnny Mandel's Close Enough For Love.This is a truly impressive first album for Sheila. Everyone involved is extremely proud of what has been achieved. For Graham it was a real labour of love since he did the arrangements, recording and mixing (over several months). The album can be purchased on the CDBaby website, or through the Sheila Waterfield website. Here are some audio clips

This album features a creative collaboration between guitarist David Williams and pianist Graham Dent playing a mix of jazz standards and original compositions by Graham. " I first met David at a jam session in Rugby. I was immediately impressed that such a young guy, fresh out of university (with a 1st class music degree) could have acquired such a mature approach to his playing in so few years. His melodic phrasing has style and elegance, and his improvisation exhibits a relaxed poise, a key characteristic of all the best soloists. The duo format works well for us, displaying our ability to blend together, listen to each other continuously, and allow space for the music to breathe." GD
