Calvin Arsenia

Calvin Arsenia is a Kansas City, MO based harp drenched Americana songwriter who wants to massage your soul with heartfelt and introspective lyrics touching on themes of love, loss, and personal growth. All this served on a bed of folk, pop, and R&B with the cascading lilt of his tender tenor voice married with wild and rhythmic classical harp playing. 

Musician and author Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head. Voted Kansas City’s Best Musician six consecutive years running, and featured on Billboard.com, NPR.org, NEWNOWNEXT, Pride.com, and GRAMMY.com, Arsenia’s angelic stylings on voice and harp create rare harmonies and arrangements that look past the boundaries of his traditional gospel and classical upbringing. 

Known for his elaborate and ceremonious sensory concert experiences that merge jazz and electronic influences, “Calvin consistently delivers genre-bending and gender-bending shows that tackle sexuality, religion, and race in a stunningly unorthodox manner – somewhere between sacred and sacrilege.” A healthy serving of indie rock, neo-soul, R&B, and a splash of baroque and art pop, this multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter is a shimmering force to be reckoned with.
