Mahdi Khene releases new single “sense”

Introducing Mahdi Khene was born in Algiers. At the age of one, he moved with his family to New York City. He started playing the guitar at the age of 14. He attributes his songwriting style to having been a self-taught musician. A troubadour at heart, he has been traveling from place to place, spending time in Maryland, D.C, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, and Virginia only to make a full circle and find himself back in New York where he performs his latest Folk/Rock albums and composes original scores for films and documentaries.

The new single “sense” which is taken from the album Don’t say a word opens out strong from the gate with great vocals & instrumentals. It’s only the greatest of singers who are capable of embodying such deep human experiences with such regularity. The crowning touch of Mahdi Khene’s achievement is the talent he shows for shaping his voice as closely as possible to the musical arrangement. The lyrical content for “sense” provides the script for Mahdi’s drama. It’s never overwritten; the words are carefully chosen and there’s no audible fat on the songwriting that trips up individual phrases. The lyric mines a near-universal strand of language with turns of phrase any adult listener will recognize, but it never sounds unnecessarily contrived or stilted. Its pure conversational eloquence increases its chance for connecting with listeners and Mahdi makes all of those moments count.
