For our Acoustic Gold session #9 we had the Bronx native Shaliek at ishlab studio. We’ve met Shaliek at SOB’s in Manhattan where he promoted his current EP Blood, Sweat, Tears with an energetic performance. Convinced by his raspy voice and classic R&B feel we invited him to record with us.
Despite his strained vocal chords that day, caused by his loaded performance schedule, Shaliek and his guitarist Jameison Ledonio rocked through the session professionally, leaving us with a real nice set of 2 of his originals – “The Past” and “Ain’t Supposed to Cry” – and his rendition of Michael Jackson’s recently released “Love Never Felt So Good.”
Shaliek is a true performer with a strong management on his side. Don’t be surprised to be seeing a lot more from this talented kid. If you ever get a chance to catch him on tour – do it! If you’d like to find out more about his story, make sure to check his NYCROPHONE Artist Page – including all links to his social media plus download links for his music, especially his most recent project Blood, Sweet, Tears.
