“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 / songwriter / producer / keyboardist. She started out as a piano vocalist, influenced by artists such as Tori Amos and Alanis Morissette but also turned to 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. However, once signed to Estaloka Records in East London, she spent a lot of time involved in the London House and Garage music scene where she had a number of white label dance releases and rubbed shoulders with some of the industries top musicians.
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 renew her contract. Her own label seeks out international deals for covering non-UK territories.
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 living in London and working out of her own studio creating original songs and production music for use in 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 (Instrumental / Production 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.
