Internationally acclaimed recording artist, songwriter and producer Shaheen Sheik is one of the most promising young artists on the World Music scene today. Her global notoriety spans from the United States to India.Based in Los Angeles, California, Shaheen Sheik has recorded two full-length studio albums: the first titled “Rock Candy” and her newest release, “REVOLUTION”.

While “Rock Candy” highlighted Shaheen’s singer/songwriter skills, “REVOLUTION” is a bold departure that reflects her unique cultural perspectives, rich global instrumentation and contemporary, stylized vocals.  The result is a brilliant mix of dance, urban, electronica and lounge tracks. “I wanted to create this disc on my own terms in order to tell the world who I am,” explains Shaheen.

“REVOLUTION” features an array of diverse guest artists, including female rocker Jungli, multi-instrumentalist and composer Shane O’Madden of Govinda, and acclaimed dhol player Teginder S. Dhanoa. Shaheen states that “being able to share a creative moment with these friends and talented artists was a thrill for me.”

“I first learned music through my body,” explains Shaheen. “Dance has played a huge role in my music because it has taught me the subtleties and complexities of rhythm and how they can impact you emotionally. I experimented a bit with beats on Rock Candy, but with REVOLUTION, I became obsessed with them.”

Shaheen also appears on the latest compilation, "Chillbar Volume 1" out on Sine Music.  This is a new series from the Sine Music group that includes a great collection of chilled grooves including cuts by Sine, Ensoul and Polished Chrome.  The Chillbar - wunderbar
