Arsenia is a must see live.-APRIL 20 @Dillon House for ARTYParty. Get tickets at ARTSConnect
The raw lyricism expressed in his music rises the occasion from stage to the spiritual realm. A testament to the artist’s ability to emote and convey sincerity. Transparency is truly is his policy.
Arsenia is a gifted singer/songwriter raised in Kansas – adept at merging pop conventions, indie-soul, folk, jazz and classical music seamlessly. As a classically trained vocalist, harpist and multi-instrumentalist, moments on stage elevate from the mundane to the surreal as each emotional experience is invoked through song. His unique arrangements, deep sensuality and lyrical wit places his sound at the forefront of what music can offer us today.
Each album released recants the concept of what is modern and classical with increased captivation. From his debut album Prose and sophomore release Catastrophe, Arsenia has built an international fan base from Canada to the UK.
His latest album “Cantaloupe” chronicles the journey a man in love takes through the barriers and boundaries of intimacy and romance. These are love songs in every sense of the word and are filled with every sensation love stirs. “Headlights” examines the fleeting nature of love. Songs like “Poseidon” and the titular track “Cantaloupe” ruminate on infidelity and marriage. His stunning rendition of Britney Spears’ pop hit “Toxic” intensifies the lyrical context of the song and is an absolute must hear.
