XPN Welcomes Duncan Sheik
Duncan Sheik's new musical, Whisper House, is already out on CD, and is opening in San Diego in January 2010 in a new production directed by Delaware's own Keith Powell ("30 Rock")

Duncan Sheik won the 2007 Tony Award for Best Orchestrations and Best Original Score for the provocative rock musical Spring Awakening, which began an off-Broadway run in spring 2006.  The show moved to Broadway in December 2006 and currently continues its success on tour.

In addition to writing the music for Spring Awakening, the Grammy Award-nominated singersongwriter has composed original music for The Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park production of Twelfth Night and for The Golden Rooms of Nero, which recently debuted at Cornell University and opened at the Magic Theater in San Francisco earlier this year. His self-titled 1996 debut album, which was an enormous popular and critical success, introduced the hit singles "Barely Breathing" and "She Runs Away," and spent 30 weeks on the Billboard 200. Other albums include "Humming," "Daylight," "Phantom Moon," with lyrics by Steven Sater, and his latest, "White Limousine, released in 2006. Film soundtracks include Great Expectations, The Saint, Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Three to Tango, What a Girl Wants, Transamerica and A Body Goes Down. Sheik recently composed and produced the original score for the feature film A Home at the End of the World starring Colin Farrell.
Born in 1969, Sheik was playing piano at age five. He later mastered the guitar and was in a cover band, Slightly Off, at age 12. Sheik graduated from Brown University in 1992 majoring in Semiotics, the study of signs and symbols.
