Jane Siberry's label Sheeba Music has signed an exclusive U.S. distribution deal with Burnside Distribution Corp. in Portland, Ore. The deal commences with the May 4 release of the Canadian singer/songwriter's album "Shushan the Palace (Hymns of Earth)," a collection of sacred songs by such composers as Bach, Handel, Mendelssohn and Holst.

Siberry, who began her career with Warner Bros. and Windham Hill, founded Sheeba in the mid-'90s as an independent outlet for her music. The Vancouver-based label has issued five albums, three of which were available in the United States via licensing deals with Sounds True and Koch. Sheeba is distributed in Canada by Maple Music via Universal.

Burnside is in negotiations to distribute Sheeba's catalog titles.
