Duncan Sheik

Alternative singer/songwriter Duncan Sheik premiered in mid-1996 when Atlantic released his self-titled debut album. Born in 1970, Duncan Sheik grew up in South Carolina but spent many of his early years living with his grandparents in New Jersey. Inspired to play the piano while there, he later moved to electric guitar and performed in bands throughout high school. While studying at Brown University, he played with Lisa Loeb, but began shopping his own demo tape soon after graduation. Later, he appeared with His Boy Elroy on a 1993 album for Epic, and spent several years writing songs before he signed a solo deal with Atlantic. Recording with producer Rupert Hine, Duncan Sheik recorded his debut album and released it in June 1996. By the end of the year, "Barely Breathing" had become a modest hit, and he resurfaced in 1998 with Humming. For Phantom Moon, Sheik paired up with dramatist/poet Steve Sater. This particular record, which appeared in early 2001, showcased a more orchestral construction from Sheilk. The next year, Sheik continued with this experimental orchestrations, but with his signature rock style for Daylight. He and Sater also prepared for the 2006 opening of their musical Spring Awakening. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide. 2007 brought the team of Sheik and Sater, 8 Tony awards, including Best Musical for Spring Awakening...Congrats from WACBIZ!!!!!
