Inventive, Genre-Breaking Artist Inspires with Rich Classical Rhythms- Rashad D. Hawkins Unveils New Album

Titled, “Urban Classical”, Rashad D. Hawkins’ eclectic and authentic new album displays the enriching appeal of Witch House and Classical music

Baltimore, MD — August 17th, 2022 – Enriching Electronic and Classical music with his own distinct, characteristic rhythms and tunes, Rashad Hawkins’ new music is one for the times. Depicting a dynamic, heavily classical, dark aesthetic, Rashad Hawkins’ new album, “Urban Classical” was released for audiences on June 24th, 2022.

The talented artist’s first full-length album, “Urban Classical” was self-produced and independently composed by the rising indie prodigy. The new album is a fitting ode to the self-taught artist’s “renaissance man” appeal, rooted within authentic, realistic, and moving themes.

Listening to the artist’s uniquely curated musical compositions, listeners are bound to feel a colorful array of emotions. Be it feeling alive, or comforted, inspired, nostalgic, or despondent, “Urban Classical” promises a one-of-its-kind spiritual experience, catalyzed by its roots in gritty, dark, and urban occult classics.

With his characteristic ingenuity and effortless ability to bend genres, Rashad Hawkins has rightfully earned a reputation as one of Baltimore’s most versatile producers. Hawkins strongly believes in the power of music and art to transform people and communities and is a self-proclaimed “Artivist”, with an aim to inspire, unite, and connect audiences across boundaries.

“I organically landed on my sound and later came across genres like WitchHouse. I love Ic3Peak and though we got to this point differently, I think that many of the elements that make our music and our overall feel is really similar,” comments Rashad Hawkins on his music.

Motivated for igniting social progress, equity, and expressing fulfilling self through his art, Rashad Hawkins remains moved by love, emotions, and the many beautiful things that resonate with him. The dynamic artist aims to become a successful musician without sacrificing or compromising on his art, and looks forward to growing his brand and fanbase.
