"The Ollo S4X has given me the confidence to state the following: 'For the first time, I am able to trust the audio that is being played back in a pair of headphones.' The seamless translation and brutal honesty of these headphones means I can perceive my music in the right way and continue to build on it. If it sounds good on the S4X that means it sounds good in real life.”
Having amassed over 250K streams on Audiomack (as well as being featured in the Pop-Culturalist, Gas Mask Magazine and A&R Factory), KUMA has proven that his exquisite voice, his candid pain and his vulnerable songs matter because they resonate with fans on a personal level. As Audiomack puts it, “KUMA is a pop star on the rise.”
A New York native, KUMA’s story is one of self-discovery and the will to move forward towards his highest purpose. At the young age of 8 years old, he started his foray into music as a classically trained violinist -- having studied the craft for nearly 10 years. He subsequently went to the University of Southern California to pursue an academic education, but found himself deeply immersed in his one and only passion: Music.
As time progressed, he ended up deejaying at historic clubs like Avalon LA and Beso in addition to a B2B set with The Chainsmokers at USC.
Fast-forward and KUMA is back in New York assisting on Mac Miller’s “The Divine Feminine” at a major studio (REMember Music/Warner Bros. Records). He also worked with Nick Cannon/Republic Records as a producer for one of his projects.
Currently, KUMA is working on a plethora of releases as he continues to expand his discography.
