Today (November 12), Los Angeles-based, Dorchester raised songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist artist Khamari releases his new song “Doctor, My Eyes”. Both sonically and emotionally, “Doctor, My Eyes” finds Khamari in an introspective space as he documents the weight of feeling too much and losing self-awareness. The new song is produced by Khamari, Trackside, and Johan Lenox.
According to Khamari, “‘Doctor, My Eyes’ is about looking for perspective. When I wrote it I had moved from Boston to LA and was trying to make sense of my life. A lot of things were shifting too fast to keep up with, but things I hoped would change stayed the same. I got put on to this Jackson Browne record, and the story resonated with me. That’s where I got the title. It’s about him being desperate to make any sense of his life and experiences. Then a friend played me Incubus, the song ‘Mexico’. I knew I wanted to lay out these thoughts over a guitar that intimate. In the outro, my grandfather is the voice that gives me advice because he’s always been an anchor for me.”
A multifaceted artist, Khamari grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Skilled as a vocalist, pianist, and guitarist, and growing up playing instruments ranging from the French horn to the violin, he left Berklee School of Music in 2017 to become a musician full time. Khamari’s music is distilled from influences ranging as wide as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Sly Stone, Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, and Mac Miller.
In 2019, Khamari released his debut EP Eldorado which took listeners on a journey through his inner struggles, his relationship issues, and honest vision for himself as an artist. This introduction was met with abundant praise, landing the cover of Fresh Finds on Spotify, additional playlisting on Apple Music FEELS, Amazon‘s The New Black and Breakthrough R&B, and as cover artist for Tidal‘s Pop: Rising.
