Sheila Tilton


Known as the girl with the “heavenly voice,” Hawaiian country singer Sheila Tilton broke onto the airwaves in the 70s with hits like “Brass Buckles,” “Little Man” and “Half as Much.”

Hawaii’s most recognizable country music “export,” Tilton was born in Oahu, where she grew up singing with her sisters.  After enjoying success as a local performer around the islands, Tilton made the move to Nashville in 1975.  It was there she met Con Brio Records’ Bill Walker, who offered the beautiful young singer a recording contract.  Tilton immediately signed the deal, beginning a two-year residency at the label and marking the first time ever a Hawaiian country singer placed on the Billboard Country Charts.

During her career, Tilton would go on to share stages with such artists as Buck Owens, Roy Orbison and Tennessee Ernie Ford, to name just a few.  Now, for the first time, fans can revisit some of Tilton’s classic songs on The Country Hits You Missed, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 collections.
