"Khalil Madyun"

Khalil Madyun
Brown Raisin Music; 2006

Pop music is unique in that as a name it is to suggest something that will be popular, and have some popularity. As a genre it means a music that is straightforward and to the point, irresistible upon first listen, deserving of repeat listens. If the music industry today has a crystal ball there is someone who is more than ready to create pop masterpieces of the future. His name is Khalil Madyun.
This 6-song EP is basic and to the point: it features nothing more than Madyun, his voice, and his music, most of which is played by him. Don’t think Prince. Instead, think of the best elements of Babyface, Me’Shell NdegeOcello, and Christopher Cross, and you have a glimpse of this man’s potential. The songs are easy to listen to, without pop culture cliches or the need to crossover into other genres. The CD works as an example of Madyun as an artist at work, and also as a songwriter whose songs could become this generation’s Stevie Wonder or Bernie Taupin. The intimacy of these songs works for his voice, although it would be interesting to see what he would be able to do with a full band or orchestra.
