Shaheen Sheik Singer Biography, Interview & Pictures

Shaheen Sheik (born June 17, 1975) is a South Asian American, singer, song-writer, producer, dancer and an actor based in Los Angeles, California. Her musical work spans several genres, including rock/pop, electronic and chill-out music. She grew up in Cleveland and Los Angeles, but traces her roots to Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu, India.


Early Years

Shaheen Sheik was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Iqbal Sheik, a psychiatrist, and Sharfudheen Sheik, a mechanical engineer. She also has an older brother, Zafar Sheik, a physician in Warren, Ohio. When she was a teenager, Sheik’s family moved to Orange County, California.

As a child, Sheik was a studied classical dancer and later in life began studying vocal, guitar and sarod.[1] She received her B.A. in Anthrolopolgy from the University of California, Berkeley and then studied law at the University of Virginia School of Law.


Career

In 2000, after graduating from law school, Sheik worked full-time on her musical career. She credits her learning how to become a singer and performer with a weekly residency at San Francisco’s Lush Lounge.[2] Soon after, Sheik moved to Los Angeles and began making the open mic circuit with contemporaries, Catherine Feeney, Alexi Murdoch and Joe Purdy.

In 2003, Sheik released her first album[3], Live from Santosha, in 2003, featuring performances from her live shows at Los Angeles’ Genghis Cohen. Later that same year, Sheik released her first studio EP, “In Your Love.”

Her first full-length album, Rock Candy, was released in May, 2005 and later picked up by Times Music India[4]. During a tour in Mumbai, Sheik was recognized as being "compared to Sheryl Crow and Shawn Colvin" by Express India.[5] In 2008, Sheik released her sophomore album Revolution, a world electronic album and departure from the guitar driven Rock Candy.[6] When discussing Revolution, Sheik has stated that being a trained dancer taught her the connection between rhythm and emotion and that her second album focused on that connection.[7]

After releasing Revolution, Shaheen met Swedish producer, SoulAvenue, on MySpace. In 2008, SoulAvenue remixed Wildflower World (Wild Orchid Mix), which was included on Chillbar: Vol. 1. SoulAvenue then remixed Sheik’s Revolution track, “Here We Go,” which George V Records placed on Buddha Bar XII, mixed by DJ Ravin. On their third collaboration, Sheik and SoulAvenue’s co-wrote “One By One”, which was included on Buddha Bar XIII, again mixed by DJ Ravin.


Dance

Sheik is a classically trained Bharatanatyam dancer and studies under Malathi Iyengar, artistic director of Rangoli Dance Company. In 2005, 2006, and 2008 Sheik received Lestor Horton Dance Award nominations for her performances in 'Ragamalika Varnam,' 'Kodhai's Dream', and Jatiswaram ('Kodhai’s Dream').[8] The Los Angeles Times described Sheik’s portrayal of Krishna in 'Kodhai's Dream' as "commanding" and her duet with fellow company dancer, Lakshmi Iyengar, as "a breathtaking finale."[9]


Acting

Sheik played Anisha Kishore in the film “Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World.”


Personal Life

In 2007, Sheik married real estate developer, Harpal Sadhal. She gave birth to their daughter on August 4, 2010.
