Duncan Sheik came to fame in the late '90s thanks to his Top 20 single "Barely Breathing" and its modern take on the singer-songwriter style. He's gone on to put out an eclectic mix of work, including his most recent album, Covers 80's, a collection of '80s covers like "What Is Love?" and "Hold Me Now." In addition to his solo career, the multitalented Sheik has also been recognized for his musical contributions to the Broadway sensation Spring Awakening, which earned him two Tony Awards and a Grammy.

Although La Semana is the first Ottmar Liebert + Luna Negra album with all-new songs in five years, the multi-faceted, Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling guitarist has been his usual prolific self, writing, drawing, touring and exploring, his myriad experiences informing the 13 evocative instrumental compositions on La Semana.
Like his music, Liebert is respectful, creative and open-minded; a thoughtful artist who likes to begin albums with a concept and structure, even if it's an untraditional one. But he's also intuitive and open enough to let the music decide what it wants to become. Thus, the more than an hours worth of songs on La Semana began with a firm direction, though ultimately the record found a different path to completion. "I usually start with a title before I start an album," Liebert explains. "The title decides what the palette will be; what sounds I'm going to use. It's very important for me to set certain limits. Will it be a color album or black and white? To me, La Semana is a drawing. As such, musically the record is back to basics with the wooden box drum used in flamenco, the clapping, and the palmas. It's all one acoustic guitar, no electric, no lutes, no steel string guitars."
