The D.C.-bred singer performs tracks from his TheKAMAUU-CASSETTE: MíXD GRēēNS project.
He performed two songs for us: “ivy” and “clover.” In his rendition of his song “ivy,” KAMAUU soulfully drives the point home of what it feels like to be in love. “clover” is also a love ballad, but it’s more about yearning for a lover to stay and work things out despite constant ups and downs.
“And I don’t give a damn what friends say, “he declares as he sings “clover,” ‘Cause everything that my friends say just another point of view. That doesn’t seem to point to you and I.”
Before finding success in the entertainment industry, KAMAUU studied filmmaking at Pratt Institute. According to OZY, his previous visual for his single “Mint” was partially inspired by his early New York days which were spent couch hopping.
