Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, Shaliek embodies the establishment of a fresh vibe with classic soul. With influences from legends Stevie Wonder, Donnie Hathaway, Michael Jackson, and Sam Cooke, Shaliek’s sound is one filled with old school passion, yet capturing new age flavor. Shaliek comes from a musically driven family. His father plays the drums and his mother is a singer. These elements served as the early roots for Shaliek’s love for music. It wasn’t long before industry notables started to take notice, culminating in Universal Records signing him to a record deal. Immediately, he was put to work collaborating with music heavyweights Alicia Keys, Bryan Michael Cox, The Underdoggs and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis just to name a few. “I remember dreaming of working with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and the next thing you know I’m in the studio with these guys working on my debut album. It was magical” Shaliek recalls. Shaliek teamed up with fellow East Coast penman Cashus C.R.E.A.M. and Derrick Thompson, former VP of Sony BMG, and formed the renowned songwriting team, The Hitterzz. The Hitterzz have coined hits for DAY26, Jordan Knight and many others. It wasn't long before Shaliek caught the attention of renowned music executive Ruben Rodriguez. Ruben immediately signed Shaliek to his label, Pendulum Records. Under the watchful eye of Ruben and Pendulum Records, Shaliek completed a soulful album entitled "Blood. Sweat. Tears.", which will be available in May 2014. The first single "The Past" available now on iTunes and PendulumRecords.com climbed the charts maintaining 10 weeks in the Top 15 on the Neilson BDS Urban AC Chart
