Khari describes himself as a multifaceted artist, musician, score composer, film lover and radio programmer. Contour — the musical alias he started in 2014 — is the vessel for his musical research, songwriting and production practices. Following on from Weight (2020) and Love Suite (2021), the 27-year-old, South Carolina-based artist released Onwards! in October 2022 with UK label Touching Bass. This third body of work serves as an expansion of his songwriting ability, both lyrically and thematically, beyond autobiographical expression.
“The record exists as a bridge in conversation between today’s artists and art of the past which offered potential ways to navigate the world that we’re in; personally or on a larger scale”, he says. Via soundbites and references, he places art ancestors and influences in conversation with his work.
Outside of this latest offering, Khari has co-directed/edited (Fresh Rain, 2021) and scored (Half-Day, 2022; One Magenta Afternoon, 2022) film, collaborated with visionary black fashion house, Telfar, and is a seasoned resident artist. Most recently for New York’s non-profit cultural center Pioneer Works, NTS Radio’s WIP programme and as a guest curator for the New York-based art publisher and performance space, Montez Press Radio.
