DYLAN LeBLANC

Dylan LeBlanc is engaging and soft-spoken in person, yet his striking new album Renegade reflects the power of his live show – one that he simply describes as rock ‘n’ roll. While the album was recorded in just 10 days and tracked in three, the intensity of the project marks the culmination of more than a decade on the road.

~Calvin Arsenia~

Voted Kansas City’s Best Musician six years in a row (2018-2023~PitchKC), featured on NPR’s World Cafe, NEWNOWNEXT, & Billboard, Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head. Arsenia’s angelic, classically-trained voice soars over audiences, while his multi-instrumental skills, particularly that of the Celtic harp, shocks & enchants them as he flirts between genres. While the harp has allowed this Kansas City native to become a man of the world (gaining followings in Paris, Edinburgh, and at the Outlyre festival in Austria), it’s his unique ability to craft a stimulating setting at his live shows that has all eyes fixed on this conspicuous musician and his breathtaking approach to harp music.

“Jeff Buckley meets Nina Simone with this soul of Sam Cooke, and the sparkle of Bjork.”

But the music is just part of his prodigious performance, for Calvin believes the art is in crafting the perfect moment. His music is best served live, with sensational vocals and avant-garde fashion from the visually striking performer who stands at 6’6”. Arsenia’s height, energy, and curated environments fill the often intimate spaces he performs in.

Brought into 9 countries through public and private grants in less than a decade, Arsenia builds a scene for his audience packed with beauty and lasting delight.

"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."
