Duncan Sheik has made a name for himself in the worlds of Top 40 music and Broadway musicals alike. Now the singer-songwriter plans to showcase his solo work alongside his theatrical compositions on a fall tour of East Coast markets.

The 12-date trek begins November 1 at Duncan Theatre in West Palm Beach, FL, and wraps November 16 at The Egg in Albany, NY. Highlights along the way include a November 6 concert at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, TN, and a November 13 gig at Town Hall in New York, NY.

On the fall tour, Sheik will perform songs from his solo repertoire, as well as selections from his upcoming record and theatre project “Whisper House” and the award-winning musical “Spring Awakening,” which he composed. According to a statement on his Web site, the performer will be accompanied on tour by Lauren Pritchard, who played the role of Ilse in the original Broadway production of the acclaimed musical.

Sheik has previously released five studio albums of his solo work, gaining the most radio play for his song “Barely Breathing” off his 1996 eponymous debut. The song peaked at No. 16 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 and stayed on the singles charts for 55 weeks, making it the fourth longest running single at the time, according to published reports.

The most recent solo release from the musician was 2006’s “White Limousine,” which was released a few months before the off-Broadway premier of “Spring Awakening.” After a few months at the Atlantic Theatre Company in New York City, the show closed, reopening in December 2006 at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on Broadway. For his work on the musical, Sheik won two Tonys for Best Orchestration and Best Original Score, while the show itself won for Best Musical.

After completing his tour in November, Sheik will be off the road until next year, when he has another 16-city tour on the books according to his MySpace profile. Scheduled to run February 9 in Louisville, KY, through March 15 in Bayshore, NY, details on that jaunt’s musical selection have not been announced.
