Los Angeles-based, Boston-raised songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist artist Khamari has released his new single “On My Way.”
Produced by Khamari and Trackside and co-written with Merna Bishouty, this new offering weaves a sample from Al Green’s 1972 classic “Love and Happiness” and showcases Khamari’s comforting vocals as he poeticizes his journey from Boston to LA. Speaking on his new release, Khamari shares:
“In the middle of the pandemic, I packed everything I owned into my car and drove across the country from Boston to Los Angeles. On My Way is a song about my move, my confidence in knowing I was making the right decision starting fresh so I could build something from the ground up.”
Khamari grew up in the Dorchester neighbourhood of Boston, MA. His artistry wraps his powerfully earnest songwriting around contemporary sonics. Skilled as a vocalist and musician, Khamari's music is distilled from influences ranging as wide as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and Sly Stone, to Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, and Mac Miller. After releasing his debut EP 'Eldorado' to a warm critical reception, Khamari seemingly disappeared for over a year. His heartbreaking single “Doctor, My Eyes” - released a full year after his debut EP, followed by “Drifting” and “Tell Me” - bridged the gap between eras as Khamari now prepares for his exciting next chapter.
His next step is to continue the hunt for the intersection of timeless musicality and contemporary style, all without losing the honest accessibility which made him relatable from the start.
