CRITIC’S PICK: Once again, January remains a considerably dry month as far as concerts go, but with a look ahead to February, you’ll see that there is a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks. As a sneak peak into next month’s concert calendar, I’ve decided to highlight rising artist Khamari’s upcoming show at the Masquerade. The Boston-bred singer-songwriter-producer credits Frank Ocean, Stevie Wonder, Mac Miller, Kid Cudi, and The Beatles as some of his key inspirations, and you can definitely hear his distinct taste through his music. Velvety, soulfully, and even at times heart-wrenching, Khamari’s latest project — 2023’s A Brief Nirvana — is a half-hour run of incredible contemporary R&B, and his early February show in Hell is the perfect opportunity to hear it live. You’re early to the Khamari party — you might as well take advantage of it by seeing the promising multi-hyphenate in a great, intimate venue. — Joshua Robinson

From the venue:

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. He drew over 10 million cumulative streams in his first 3 songs – including 500k in “The Heat” first week on Spotify alone. His debut album A Brief Nirvana has racked up 40m+ global streams, and These Four Walls continues to climb at R&B radio, supported by live shows – one in partnership with Spotify at SOBs in New York City, and at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw music festival. Khamari was also nominated for R&B Artist of the Year at the Boston Music Awards and was selected as one of VEVO’s Artists to Watch for 2024. Back in the studio, he is now looking forward to the next exciting chapter.
