Sheila Chandra Author Biography
“Chandra is one of the most distinctive, imaginative and unbelievable vocalists you’ll ever hear.”
Sheila Chandra made some of the most beautiful and innovative recordings in the World Music category − beginning with her band Monsoon’s 1982, ground-breaking Asian Fusion, Top Ten hit around the world, ‘Ever So Lonely’ − until voice problems forced her to retire in 2010. Since then, in an unlikely twist, she’s gone on to become a best-selling author with Banish Clutter Forever (2010) outlining her own system for home organizing, which she says makes it possible to “pretty much, never tidy up again”.
“I’ve read other books on clutter but nothing really seems to work. Sheila Chandra’s system is so simple and effective it even worked on an inveterate hoarder like me. Absolutely brilliant.”
She also began mentoring the (then homeless) street artist Stik in 2008, writing a version of ‘Organizing Your Creative Career’ just for him. Stik has gone on to become one of the most famous and collectible street artists in the world. A revised edition containing a new chapter was published in 2020.
