NEW MUSIC: Killiam Shakespeare serves the perfect dose of variety and musicality in latest collective album ‘Killiam Season 1’

August 4, 2016

Killiam Shakespeare’s new collective album ‘Killiam Season 1’ is a hefty dose of variety, gifting the ears of all who hears it. The Philly-based group: with frontmenSteve Mckie and Corey Bernhard, are showcasing their talent to the extreme with this multifaceted project- collaborating with artists across all genres. ‘Killiam Season 1’- their 2nd studio album- with its electronic basis and R&B overlay, is a true blend of genres- allowing the audience to approach it in any mood, and come out satisfied. Throughout the piece, the styles begin to merge; as classical tracks loop over rock tracks that loop over rooted hip hop foundations. With half of its songs having lyrical input (varying from raps, to ballad-like intonations), and others expressing solely through instrumentals- the whole package is a malleable work of art, fitting every circumstance. Check out the 16-song long ‘Killiam Season 1’ below.
