Bay Area native Hanni El Khatib blends blues, garage, folk and classic rock & roll crooning into his music. Khatib released two singles, “Dead Wrong” and “Build. Destroy. Rebuild”, through Innovative Leisure, for which he is the visual director and co-owner. He landed a spot with Florence and the Machine on tour, and quickly built up a solid fan base. His debut album Will the Guns Come Out followed, appearing at No. 46 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The video for the album’s final track, “I Got A Thing”, racked up over 2 million views on YouTube. “I Got A Thing” was licensed for a Nike advertising campaign to serve as what NPR described as a “modern surf, skate and all-around shredding anthem.” Khatib’s second studio release, Head In The Dirt, was produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and rose to No. 8 on the Heatseekers chart. It spawned the track “Can’t Win ‘Em All”, which was heard in the Superbowl XLVII commercial, reportedly reaching 114 television viewers. Khatib played most of the instruments on his third studio album, Moonlight. A remix of the album’s title track features Wu-Tang Clan member GZA. Khatib's latest album, Savage Times, is a collection of powerful and politically-charged singles and EPs that Khatib released throughout the year. Khatib’s music has been heard in many TV commercials for Converse, Captain Morgan, Applebee’s, Sky Atlantic, Nike, Nissan and Levi’s. It’s also been featured in TV series including Suits, Hung, Californication, United States of Tara, Elementary, Luther, House, Gotham, and Blacklist..
