Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Sheila Brody was discovered by none other than The Godfather of Funk, himself -George Clinton – while sitting on the front steps of United Sound Studios. She would become the lead singer of The Brides of Funkenstein and would go on to record Never Buy Texas From a Cowboy – named one of the 50 coolest albums of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine in 2001. Since then she has worked with such musical dignitaries as John Mellencamp, Cindy Lauper, Was (not Was) and Rick James, and recorded a number 1 Billboard hit “Everything” from the Pokemon’s 2. B. A. Master movie and television soundtrack.

Sheila Brody would go on to attain international stardom as a house music artist known as AMUKA. Under this stage name she recorded no less than 6 TOP TEN BILLBOARD HOT DANCE / CLUB MUSIC CHART hits, includingAppreciate Me” – a collaboration with electronica icon Peter Rauhofer, “I Want More” – a collaboration with Offernissum, and the 2014 track “Destination (We Are The Ones)” – a collaboration with Twisted Dee and Spyglass Edmund.

Lately she has been working with Rap legends Public Enemy. She sang on their 2012 album The Evil Empire of Everything and sings on their just-released new album Man Plans, God Laughs – most notably on the Rolling Stones sample “Honky Talk Rules”.

We are very happy to report that Sheila Brody has recently moved back home and has just released 3 new singles: “My Home”, “With This Love”, and “High Horse” that will be featured on an upcoming, yet-to-be-named album. In the meantime, please enjoy a music video of AMUKA performing- “Destination (We Are The Ones)”.
