Indie Recording Artist Shaheen Sheik Featured on Delta Air Lines In-Flight Programming
Artist's song, Wildflower World, played alongside greats like Norah Jones and Sheryl Crow!
LOS ANGELES, CA, August 20, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Independent recording artist, Shaheen Sheik, was featured by Delta Air Lines, one of the largest airlines in the world, as part of its premier in-flight entertainment for the month of July. Delta's selective entertainment option includes songs from world-renowned artists, like the legendary Robbie Robertson and award-winning John Mayer and Norah Jones.
Like any indie artist, Shaheen dreamed her music would be exposed to such a large audience. Last month, a friend flying Delta excitedly contacted Shaheen to inform her that her song, "Wildflower World", was being heard by listeners from across the world via one of the hottest in-flight entertainment channels.
Needless to say, Shaheen was humbled and more than a bit surprised to find out that she obtained a top spot on the prestigious Delta playlist, found right amongst artists she admires and has been influenced by, such as the incomparable Sheryl Crow. "I can't tell you how many nights I listened to Sheryl Crow's albums growing up, singing her songs over and over again. To know that I shared a playlist with her, well that is an absolute career highlight!"
Delta's in-flight entertainment reaches close to 5 million listeners every month. It is virtually unheard of to have an independent artist featured alongside the likes of undeniable international stars and have their music played to listeners from across the globe through this very competitive format. This is clearly an incredible accomplishment for Shaheen and also a very clear acknowledgement of the quality and global appeal of her work.
The featured track, "Wildflower World," is from her highly praised disc Rock Candy. The song delves into the struggle of idyllic love that can never exist in a far too complicated world and the restraint to know this truth.
