Khalil Madyun is an up & coming singer/songwriter, originally from Boston, who has recently made New York his home. As a youngster growing up, music was always around him: the shows and concerts that came to the theater where his mother worked, the musical theater productions his father wrote or the songs and poetry he performed in elementary school with his classmates. When he reached high school, he became a member of the high school chorus, Southeast District Chorus, All State Chorus, and SEMSBA chorus. At age 15, Khalil asked for a keyboard for his birthday. The day he received it, he stayed up all night writing his first song. From that point, music became the focal point of his life. He studied voice at the Boston Conservatory Musical Theater Youth Program. In 2000 and 2001, Khalil attended the Berklee 5-week summer program and the Berklee City music program during the school year in a quest to enhance his technical skills and hone his craft. During his time in those programs he developed a strong foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge which compliments his natural born talent. Through his participation in these programs, he received a full tuition scholarship to Berklee College of Music. While attending Berklee he studied voice with Armstead Christian (writer and background vocalist for Will Downing, Najee), Jeff Ramsey (background vocalist for Maxwell, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Al Jarreau), and vocal ensemble instruction with Walter Beasley. Khalil also performed as a background singer at Berklee's 20th Anniverary Annual Singer's Showcase. Among the artists he sung for was Susan Tedeschi. Before graduating, he taught piano lab and voice lessons to city music high school students. He also tutored music theory to his fellow college classmates. In 2004, Khalil graduated from Berklee College of Music with a a bachelor's degree in professional music concentrating in voice and songwriting. His songwriting awards began while he was in high school, and continued throughout his college years. In November 2004, Khalil performed in the Songwriters Hall of Fame's 52nd New Writers Showcase. His song "How Many Ways" is featured on the 2005 Compilation CD "The Best of the Songwriters Hall of Fame New Writers Showcase, Vol. 3". In New York Khalil has performed at the Triad Theater, the Cutting Room, the CBGB's Downstairs lounge and the Craig Haft's Songwriter's Soundstage. Now Khalil is ready for the world having recently released his self titled debut EP.
