“UK singer / songwriter / producer Atheen is a self-confessed keyboard nerd who is slightly deaf in one ear thanks in no small part to an over-zealous guitarist whose amp actually did go up to 11. She once harbored dreams of being a rock goddess but having totally failed as a guitarist, settled on being a ‘keytarist’ instead, where she still gets to run around the stage and play licks through her cry baby without getting string-dented fingers”.
Atheen is a versatile UK singer, keyboardist, songwriter, composer and producer.
She started out as a piano vocalist, influenced by Tori Amos and Alanis Morissette but soon turned to Jazz-Funk – her first band performed songs by bands and artists such as The Brecker Brothers, Level42, Stanley Clarke, Patrice Rushen, etc. During this time she supported Soul II Soul with her duo Back2Funk. She also collaborated on a number of advertising tracks that often won ‘advert of the month’ from local radio stations.
On relocating to London, she signed to Estaloka Records who released a couple of funky house tracks on white label vinyl. During her London years, Atheen developed her production skills and wrote and produced music for a number of other artists. As her deal ended, the industry was changing rapidly and Atheen decided to set up her own label and self-release her music rather than seek out a new deal.
In 2011 Atheen appeared on National television and at a number of high-profile events across China, where she performed in both English and Mandarin. 2013 saw her performing a residency in Dubai and collaborating with performers in Hong Kong.
Atheen is currently based in London, working out of her own studio creating original songs and composing music for film and television. She is still playing regularly and booking performances as a solo artist and with her jazz and funk band lineups. Her two labels are Modal Records (Jazz / Jazz-Funk) and Mythology Music (Film / TV / Media Music).
Atheen is currently working with various agents globally for solo artist, jazz and funk bookings. Agent details will appear here soon. In the meantime please use the form on the contact page to enquire about bookings and we will direct you to the agent working in your region.
