(August 16, 2023) – Today, Los Angeles-based, Boston-raised songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist artist Khamari releases his new music video “Right My Wrongs” from his debut album A Brief Nirvana. The music video depicts Khamari roaming the house he once shared with his partner as snapshots of the couple’s deteriorating relationship filter throughout the space. Perfectly capturing the feeling of love’s ephemerality, Khamari’s “Right My Wrongs” is an ode to fleeting memories – click here to watch.
“The “Right My Wrongs,” video depicts when a relationship ends and the physical space you used to share becomes a prison of memories and reminders of what used to be.” Khamari shares, “I question “what could I have done differently,” and think “maybe we were train cars passing, and it isn’t meant to be.” Nostalgia and thoughts of how I might’ve appreciated those moments more had I known they were slipping through my fingers as I relive the memories in every room.”
Khamari grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood 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 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,” “Tell Me” and “On My Way” – bridged the gap between eras as Khamari prepared for the release of his debut album A Brief Nirvana, the 11-track project plays like a sonic documentary, reflecting his personal journey as well as his artistic growth.
Khamari‘s career debuted with a trio of Spotify New Music Friday placements, including a #10 spot with his sophomore single release “The Heat.” His editorial support rounded out as the cover artist for Spotify’s Fresh Finds, and further playlisting on Apple Music FEELS, Amazon’s The New Black and Breakthrough R&B, and as cover artist for Tidal’s Pop: Rising. With over 10 million cumulative streams in his first 3 songs – including 500k in “The Heat” first week on Spotify alone – Khamari was also nominated for R&B Artist of the Year at theBoston Music Awards and previously delivered the most heartfelt COLORS performance of “These Four Walls” which has over 6.4M global streams to date.
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.
