Born and raised in Washington, DC, AMARU grew up writing poetry and performing musical theatre. After high school, he moved to Atlanta to study music at Morehouse College where he sang with the glee club and the jazz band. While in school AMARU began performing as a solo artist while also songwriting, and collaborating with local musicians, producers, and artists across multiple genres. 

Inspired by a wide variety of styles between neo-soul, jazz, and classical music, his musical palette is as expansive as his vocal range and his chameleon-like writing style highlights his ability to create and perform across genres. 

AMARU writes, composes, and produces his own original music and incorporates elements of improvisation into his live sets. His latest release is the single “Let You Go” which dropped in March of this year and is available on all major streaming services. Currently, AMARU is producing his next conceptual project, #WFR4 (What Friends Are For), which features a group of artists, producers, and DJs he’s collaborated with throughout the pandemic.

AMARU is also a member of Mayor Bowser’s most recent 202 Creates Residency Program cohort:
