LA Sessions follows up the harpist/multi-instrumentalist’s critically acclaimed debut Cantaloupe, and features the achingly haunting single “Back To You.”

Known for his magnetic voice and incandescent use of imagery and costumes in his live performances and videos, Arsenia lets his soulful hypnotic vocal style rule while gathering around him some of music’s most sought-out collaborators/session musicians. His ability to seamlessly bend genres and fuse diverse musical styles (a hallmark of his work) shines through on multiple standout tracks, including “Falling Over,” the playful “Poseidon,” the gospel tinged “Dying,” the jazzy R&B scorcher, “Smoke And Mirrors” and a smoldering version of Billie Holiday’s treasured “Don’t Explain.”

Produced by Tony Braunagel, LA Sessions deftly showcases the eclectic young artist’s incredible vocal gift and features Braunagel on percussion, Paul Brown on guitar, Mike Finnigan on keyboards, Freddie Washington on bass, and David Garfield on piano. Between them, the five musicians have worked with some of music’s most iconic names, including Jimi Hendrix, George Benson, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Leonard Cohen, Bonnie Raitt, and more.

Cantaloupe

Calvin Arsenia

Purchase on CenterCutRecords.com

“…Arsenia slips between the cracks of reality into an Alice in Wonderland kind of fantasy, while also drawing from his classical training.” - Popdust

Kansas City’s beloved singer/songwriter, harpist & multi-instrumentalist, Calvin Arsenia, releases ‘Cantaloupe,’ an album celebrating independence, love, sensuality, and wit. Shamelessly blending, soul, pop, classical, and folk musical styles, Arsenia woos these sometimes disheveled orchestrations into a surrealist dreamworld where romance is king and transparency is queen.

Cantaloupe features 9 original tracks including the entrancing and empowering “Headlights,” as well as a version of Britney Spears’ Toxic that will engulf you head to toe.

“While everyone else is feeling crushed by the weight of the world, Calvin is out chasing beauty… and he’s taking us all along for the ride.” -iheartlocalmusic
