Sheila Foley on SoundBetter

A bass player with the Funk. I am a trained musician and performer, well versed in all types of music, both in studio and live performance. I have done a variety of studio work ranging from Hip Hop and Pop to Country and Rock music.

Cut my teeth in the Baltimore music scene. At the age of 18, i moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a degree in Commercial Music Performance with an emphasis in Electric Bass from Belmont University. I lived in Nashville for 7 years and did both session and live music work. I was involved in Nashville's Hip Hop scene (working with artists such as Case Arnold, Tim Gent and Black City), as well as country and pop artists. In 2019 I moved to Las Angeles, since moving I have done session work for LA Hip Hop group Coast Contra, Peter $un, and my band Mocha.
