Duncan Sheik’s 1996 hit “Barely Breathing” set a record (since broken) for being on the charts for 55 weeks. In recent years, the song has popped up on “Glee” and “Girls.”
Sheik continued to record but never returned to the Top 10. In 2006, however, the singer-songwriter scored big on Broadway, winning a Tony Award for his musical “Spring Awakening,” which is now enjoying a revival with deaf actors. Credited for bringing a pop sensibility to the Great White Way, Sheik has since been in demand for other projects, including a musical version of “American Psycho,” set to open on Broadway in the spring.
