Based out of Toronto, Knwra is an multi talented Artist, event coordinator, graphic designer, co-producer, content curator and writer. Not afraid of hard work, Knwra has made himself a student of the arts. Lately, he has been studying singers , instrumentation, tapping into different genres & breaking down their arrangements.
"When my mom was pregnant with me, she would write poetry everyday which reflected on me . Ever since I could remember I was into creative writing (scripts, poetry, self reflection) Eventually it would transition into writing music."
Knwra gains inspiration from everything around him but particularly music, film, art, fashion & books. When looking for a beat Knwra is looking for something that can capture the emotion of the moment. When it comes to fellow artists who inspire him Knwra gave us this list: Freddie Joachim,Ohbliv, Pi'erre Bourne, Icy Twat, LORDFUBU, Cam Obi, Lone, Fumez The Engineer, Knwxledge , Large Professor, Alchemist Buckwild.
For many people navigating their way through the music industry "making it" becomes the main motivation. But this is something that is personal and looks different for every person. For Knwra making it is
"Being in a place where I have the position of power to reverse my generational curse & pass the knowledge back to my community so we can all eat."
As 2022 just starting we are excited to see what the rest of this year looks like for this upcoming artist. We know he is in the studio drinking his water, he says that you can never catch him looking thirsty. With a release around the corner make sure you keep an eye out for Knwra.
