Recently voted Pitch Kansas City’s Best Musician 2018, and featured on NPR.org, and NEWNOWNEXT, Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head. Arsenia’s angelic, classically-trained voice soars over audiences, enchanting even the fussiest of fans, beckoning them to join him as he flirts between genres. Jeff Buckley meets Nina Simone with this soul of Sam Cooke, and the sparkle of Bjork.
But the music is just one part of his prodigious performances, for Calvin believes the art is in crafting the perfect moment. His music is best served live, with sensational performances and high fashion from the visually striking performer who stands at well over six feet tall. Arsenia’s height, energy, and curated environments fill the often intimate spaces he performs in. Brought in to 9 countries through public and private grants in less than a decade, Arsenia builds a scene for his audience and for himself, packed with beauty and lasting delight.”
