Who is Sense?

I’ve been paying close attention to Sense for a while and if I could answer that question I’d say that he is a talented MC who is profoundly gifted with rhythm and words. Let me tell you more about Sense.

The artist known as Sense (Michael Bourne) is a Canadian born young man who livis ies in the Brampton part of the GTA but is originally from Edmonton Alberta.  Displaying his passion in music at an early age (5), Sense had engaged in singing at churches and weddings through the help of his parents. Through following his love for singing, Sense came across Hip hop thanks to his cousin and thus a new way to reflect and display emotion was found. He was intrigued and decided to combine his new love with his older singing talent and something special was created. That different style brought amazement to the hip hop fans in the GTA as they came across Sense’s music.    

Being so passionate about his love for music, Sense eventually dropped out of high school and with that drastic change, Sense really stepped into the music. Being so driven, Sense went and purchased studio equipment and learned how to engineer vocal audios and instrumentals, and through those efforts he was successful at getting airplay on 89.5 Project Bounce, a very popular at the time radio show. He was 18 at the time. Continually getting more hits on the radio show, dropping 8 mixtapes and 6 years later, Sense really gained notice from a 4 month old submission on 93.7 WBLK Unsigned Hype and got a response. He had received the opportunity to reach out to the American market, so he took action and didn’t let the chance go by. With the help of an assembled team of graphic designers, his manger, friends, and several talented local producers like Raj Tut and Nick Knox he made a promotional push that earned him a maximum allowed 5 week reign at the number one spot on the countdown with his song “Love or Hate me”.

Since then, Sense has had 3 more hit singles released, all going to number one, and in early 2010 Sense headed out to the second annual Unsigned Hype Awards in Buffalo, NY where he walked away with the “Hip Hop Artist Of The Year Award” for Canada . Excited about this newest phase in his life he knows he can’t slow down now as he keeps pressing on with a new mixtape series entitled “Lord of The Kings”, a much anticipated debut album release set for 2011, and probably one of the most interactive and entertaining live shows in the GTA. Sense intends on letting the world know that if you’re not already watching him…you should be.
