Khalid Hanifi’s music has recently been featured in such places as the NBC show “Mercy,” and the PRX radio documentary “Finding Our Bootstraps: Americans Deal With Recession.” But Khalid’s career otherwise spans over two decades. After a brief stint with Atlantic Records as part of the band Map of the World ending in 1990, Khalid has gleefully pursued the indie route, first with the acts “Kiss Me Screaming” and “Maypops”, and more recently as a solo artist, with his first release “Pamplemousse Presse” in 2008. After a lengthy and diverse career both inside and outside the mainstream industry, Khalid’s only remaining challenges are to help the world understand that his name is not “Colin” and that he is a pop singer/songwriter a la Warren Zevon or Elvis Costello, not an Arab Hip Hop star.
