Sheila E’s “HerStory” Coming Soon!
Produced by Hit Like A Girl, Inc. in conjunction with StilettoFlats Music, Inc., “HerStory” is an exclusive series of video interviews featuring world-renowned drummer/percussionist Sheila E. The six-chapter project documents the life story of one of today’s most recognized and respected drum artists while also highlighting her passion for drumming and her influence on the female drumming community.
During the course of “HerStory’s” six chapters, Sheila and guest interviewer Louise King (Hit Like A Girl director and Rhythm magazine editor) share the story of Sheila’s incredible life, talk about her favorite recordings and celebrate the rise of female drummers. Each chapter covers a significant period of Sheila’s career— from her early years growing up with her family and touring/recording with legends like Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie through her hits with Prince and solo career.
Each chapter also includes a segment where Sheila discusses a memorable track or situation from a “behind-the-scenes” perspective that will be fascinating for drummers and non-drummers, alike.
