Some individuals are just born to perform and there’s no question that Klassik, a Milwaukee native, should definitely be included in that list. One can easily tell by listening to his music, watching his videos and going to see him live, that the promising genre fusing artist has always loved to perform. But perform what, you ask. Well that’s a different story; Klassik pays homage to the many legends of generations past which includes the likes of such as Stevie Wonder, John Coltrane, and Steely Dan. But even with an old soul as his, Klassik also appreciates today’s musical geniuses as he lists Kanye West and Pharrell Williams as individuals that also helped mold his musical style that he states comes out 100% unique, fresh, and most importantly timeless.
Klassik has immediately garnered attention by winning a couple Artist of the Year awards in Milwaukee as well as opening for Kendrick Lamar, Ludacris and recently selling out a New Year’s concert at Milwaukee’s popular Iron Horse Hotel.
But past accolades aside, the forward-thinking artist is prepared to heat up the first quarter of the new year with an eclectic blend of sounds with his new EP Winter, set to be released January 15th. Describing the project as, “A period of the artistic journey that is marked by depression, isolation, and frustration. The goal is to encompass those feelings, but then transform them into hope for the return of joy, of love, and of brighter, warmer days.”
Be on the look out for Winter, but until then check out Klassik’s visuals to Boogie:
