About Khalid

{::Welcome to Khalid Hanifi.com::}

Summer_2011_01Khalid is an Ann Arbor, Michigan based singer, songwriter and recording artist whose career spans over three decades. After a brief stint with Atlantic Records as part of the band Map of the World ending in 1990, Khalid pursued the indie route, first with the acts Kiss Me Screaming and Maypops, and more recently as a solo artist. His most recent full-length release was “A Brief Respite From Shooting Fish In A Barrel” in 2013 and he continues to release material on a song-by-song basis, weather permitting.  After a lengthy and diverse career both inside and outside the mainstream industry, Khalid’s ongoing challenges are to help the world understand that his name is not “Colin” and that he is a pop/rock singer/songwriter a la Warren Zevon or Harry Nilsson, not a hip hop artist.
