Duncan Sheik recently took some time out of his busy schedule to hang out with us at the Paste Studio. You may recognize him from the ‘90s hit, “Barely Breathing,” but this man is no one-hit wonder. He has gone on to compose Broadway musicals, including the Tony Award winner Spring Awakening. Right now, Sheik is getting ready for the Broadway debut of American Psycho, for which he composed the music and wrote the lyrics. The Broadway edition opens for previews on March 24.
On top of his Broadway accomplishments, Sheik is still writing and releasing his own personal music. His eighth studio album, Legerdemain, released last year.
Check out “Selling Out” from the American Psycho: Original London Cast Recording above, performed with Benjamin Walker (playing the lead role of Patrick Bateman), as well as “Half A Room” and “Avalanche” from Legerdemain below.
