Drummer, Producer, and Singer-Songwriter Will Rose (formerly Airo Kwil) unveils a body of new work, reflecting on life and the world alike. His love for the Midwest’s introspective hip hop is on display, coupled with his dedication to forging and performing elevated musical narratives that often defy genre definition. Rose is doubling down on his mission statement, unleashing playful productions in hand with cathartic glimpses, making for a superbly entertaining spectacle.
Klassik has recently shared the stage with acts such as Kendrick Lamar, Talib Kweli, DJ Premier, and Robert Glasper to name a few. Klass!k is truly an old soul. His fusion of Hip-Hop and Jazz, amongst many other genres, pays homage to the many legends of generations past. His music is not based around braggadocio or glorification of the world’s ills, but rather portrays a positive, forward thinking person, fueled by his inspiration to constantly create and innovate. His diverse influences including Stevie Wonder, John Coltrane, and Pharrell Williams have helped mold a blend of musical styles that comes out one hundred percent unique, fresh, and timeless.
