PRETTY VACANT ONE is just digging through the crates of life and sharing what we like.

Hi! I’m Shelia, founder of PRETTY VACANT ONE. Thank you for checking us out! The title was inspired by my favorite Sex Pistols song, “Pretty Vacant”. I have always liked the Sex Pistols but gained a finer appreciation of them later in my adult life. This site was born out of the ashes of my last website 16 Clefs (dive into those posts) that I started as an outlet to share music with others. If you’re asking, why is this one different, the main reason (and lesson I’ve learned) is that you have to be passionate about what you write about and 16 Clefs went from being passionate to going through the motions. I wanted to please everyone and listen to everything and then listening got to where it was a job and not fun so I closed the doors and walked away. With PRETTY VACANT ONE, I’m taking my lessons learned and my reignited passion to listening to music and I’m ready to share again.
