Introducing – Shaliek Rivers.

The name might sound unfamiliar to some of you but Rivers has been in the music business for a while and has paid his dues. Heavily influenced by Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke and Stevie Wonder, among others, Shaliek’s vocal range and presence has garnered him the honors of having performed with the legendary James Brown and winning not once, but several times on Showtime at The Apollo.

Shaliek has written with some of the best in the business. He’s collaborated with B Cox, Alicia Key’s, The Underdogs and countless other hit makers. Rivers is currently finishing work on his new, forth coming debut album.

"Shaliek Rivers - Perfect Storm"

A big thanks to Winning Ods for sending this my way. I’ve had “Perfect Storm” on heavy rotation these past few days. Shaliek Rivers is a Bronx native who has built his songwriting credits during a brief hiatus from his singing career. It seems he had some amazing collaborations in place for his debut album, which never saw the light of day due to label politics. Now he’s back to it, and although I really love this song I hope he will deliver consistency because there is way too much mediocre R&B (why just limit it to R&B…music in general).

Anyways, I look forward to seeing more from this artist. In the mean time, I will still be enjoying his “Perfect Storm.” This is a great record, I absolutely love how he opened up the song and built it up to a passionate, engaging hook. He’ll definitley be catching listens with this one.

A Legacy in The Making~ In an age of microwave success, and fly by night artists, it’s easy to appreciate those that steadily build a career. With a rapidly growing Internet popularity, an international presence, and a foundation in conceptual songwriting, The Bronx’s own Shaliek embodies the establishment of a new vibe, and the building of a Legacy. With influences like Stevie Wonder, Donnie Hathaway, and Michael Jackson, and Sam Cooke, it was actually a drum-playing father and a singing mother who served as early anchors to Shaliek’s love for music. After winning countless school talent shows and also a multiple winner at SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO, Shaliek landed the backup singing gig for the legendary James Brown at the 2002 MTV Music Awards. Shaliek was also the opening act for the Multi-platinum Recording Artist Ashanti in Atlantic City. It wasn’t long before industry notables started to take notice and Shaliek signed a record deal with Universal Records. The buzz worthy single “Get 2 Know Ya” featuring Juvenile was birthed from this business marriage and soon after, Shaliek’s vocals and writing ability were both being brought to the mainstream forefront. “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”. For this album, Shaliek also collaborated with big names such as Alicia Keys, Bryan Michael Cox, and The Underdogs just to name a few. A strained relationship with his close team members made it very difficult for Shaliek to fulfill obligations with his record label resulting in the album never seeing the light of day. “I felt like everything i worked so hard for was suddenly taken away from me. I remember feeling lost”. Always one to roll with the punches, Shaliek decided to focus on his other passion, Songwriting and created The Hitterzz alongside fellow East Coast penman Cashus C.R.E.A.M. The Hitterzz teamed up with former VP of Sony BMG, Derrick Thompson. With Derrick as manager, the three of them set out a mission to write for other artist in the industry. The Hitterzz eventually landed "One Night Only” On Day 26 No. 1 Debut, Forever In A Day, which opened doors for other placements that followed. While he remains dedicated to his writing team, Shaliek decided to pick up where he left off. “I owe it to myself and the people that were riding for me and supported my every move. This is for us”. Shaliek teamed up with Organize Entertainment Group and is now on the road to fulfilling his dream to touch the world through his music. Fearlessly, in a world of uptempo radio songs, Shaliek decided to pay homage to his musical heroes Michael Jackson, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, and Sam Cooke by releasing “THE PERFECT STORM”, a song that the ladies will love and the fellas will appreciate. “I want my music to do what music did back in the day. I’m going for timeless”.
