O’s Notes: Sheila is a true jazz singer, based in blues and expressing her feelings through song. She sings about her own experiences, dreams and emotions. Jordan has a lot to draw from – born to a teenaged mom, raised by grandparents in the coal mines of Pennsylvania and a single mom herself. Her voice is sweet but not fragile and she is comfortable and capable using free form expression. It’s tied around the tight rhythms from her trio.
