As a teenager she formed the band Monsoon with Steve Coe who became the band's producer and bassist Martin Smith. The band recorded its only album, Third Eye , in from which it had a hit single, " Ever So Lonely ", which peaked at No.
Resenting pressure from their record company over musical direction, Monsoon dissolved in and Coe and Smith set about promoting Chandra as a solo artist on independent Indipop Records.
Chandra went on to release a number of albums in the s, at times experimenting with her voice as an instrument through a range of techniques. In the s Chandra decided, having been a studio artist exclusively, to give concerts for the first time, and concurrently released a trilogy of albums on Peter Gabriel 's Real World label. These were in the minimalist solo voice and drone style, which she developed especially for live performances, so that she could perform alone on stage with only the occasional taped drone for accompaniment.
Martin Smith was no longer actively involved by this time. Drawing on similarities of structure between Indian ragas and English folk melodies, she started to incorporate many British and Irish traditional songs and techniques, as well as other vocal styles and techniques from around the world.Check out All You Want Is More by Sheila Chandra on Amazon Music.
