"(His) music has a sincerity and temerity that is unwilling to be confined by genre" 90.9 The Bridge
A mix of bizarre and experimental musings with swooping, hearty melodies, and raw acoustic emotion form the gentle, heartfelt style that defines the music of Calvin Arsenia. Standing at 6 foot 6 inches, Arsenia strikes a commanding presence complimented by his equally powerful vocal capacity. Arsenia released his first full length record, Catastrophe in early 2017.
" ...may be the most interesting performer you see all year. " iheartlocalmusic
Unbridled to genre or tradition, Arsenia came of age in Kansas City studying classical voice, piano, and guitar. In 2009 he debuted his first EP and has released and been featured on many recordings since then. Then in 2012 Arsenia relocated to Edinburgh, Scotland, where he began to push his boundaries as artist and find the confidence to display his own unique and vulnerable singing style. After having returned to the US, he has been able to dive into creating immersive performative events that consistently transcend audiences expectations.
