Faith-based Musician Nicole Sheahan Announces New EP

LDS musical artist Nicole Sheahan to release new EP June 17th.

When Nicole Sheahan applied for the Media Music (now Commercial Music) program at Brigham Young University, she was initially rejected. “I would write songs every day if I could,” she told online magazine Mormon Artist in 2008. “[I] put my whole heart into the audition, but then I got the letter saying I didn’t get in and that I’d have to wait another year to try again.”

Fortunately, Sheahan didn’t have to wait another year. When a spot in the program suddenly opened up, she got a call from the program director and found herself studying music at BYU that fall. Since that time, Sheahan has had several notable releases. “I Am His Daughter” and “I Am Enough” were both included in Especially for Youth compilation albums for the years 2010 and 2014 respectively. Especially for Youth is a youth camp for Latter-day Saint teenagers. Every year they produce a soundtrack full of faith-based tunes. “I Am Enough” was particularly successful. To date, it has been streamed over 150,000 times. Sheahan also released an album, Invisible Facts, in 2007.

Last Saturday, the singer-songwriter announced that her new EP, Chapters of My Heart, will be released on Friday, June 17th. Sheahan will be holding an official launch concert in Orem the following day, June 18th. The album release show will also be a benefit convert for Operation Underground Railroad. The non-profit organization raises awareness about child sex trafficking and focuses their efforts on rescuing and freeing child sex slaves. Accompanying the announcement was a live performance stream of Sheahan and cellist Jordan Benson covering Hillary Scott & The Scott Family’s “Thy Will.”

“I’m so excited to share these songs with you,” Sheahan said online. “These songs are stories of what my heart has experienced and learned the last couple of years. I’ve been working on this EP for over a year and a half, and it’s my hope that these songs help you love where you are in your own story.”
