Saleka is an Indian American songwriter/musician/actress who began playing piano at age 4. She left behind years of classical piano training to begin pursuing R&B music at age 16. She now recalls this passion-driven, teen rebellion moment as a pivotal one as she’s on the cusp of releasing her first full-length body of work, 2023’s Séance via Range Music/Virgin Music/Capitol Records.
This debut full length incorporates her over a decade of classical training while she creates a sound both entirely new and also deeply rooted in the world of jazz, R&B, singer-songwriter, and neo soul. Each song compliments the next, the album serving as a free-flowing stream of consciousness as Saleka—who writes, produces, and plays instruments throughout—walks listeners through her experiences as if you are getting to read her personal journal.
Saleka has performed at iconic venues across the United States, opening for both R&B legends and up-and-coming artists such as Giveon, Summer Walker, Baby Rose and K. Michelle. She has also performed at Bonnaroo, ACL, Philly Music Fest and Jakarta Jazz Festival. Over the past few years, Saleka wrote several songs (EP titled Songs from The Attic) for the Apple TV+ hit, Servant, which served to portray the never seen, but omnipresent character, Vivian Dale and the beautiful song, “Remain,” which also served as narration for the M. Night Shyamalan blockbuster, OLD.
