Kevin Nicolas Lizaire, also addressed as “Knicolas,” is a multi-talented independent multimedia artist from Hartford, Connecticut. His love for music derived at the age of ten after watching a Freestyle Friday battle on the then-popular show, 106 & Park. He felt the energy and enthusiasm the battle rappers provided the audience with and vice versa; this encouraged him to write his first verse. He also began exploring the world of music, particularly Hip-Hop. In high school he began his own rap group called, Royal Fame Nxggaz (R.F.N). This was only the beginning.
Today, Knicolas is a recording artist, a songwriter, an audio engineer, a producer, and a photographer. Hence, he’s a well-rounded creative. Knicolas combines all of his artistic mediums to create amazing storytelling opportunities in his music.
Knicolas is influenced and inspired by artists representing various genres of music. He ensures that he provides his listeners with quality music that allows them to relate to him, or even feel, listen, and think out of the ordinary. His newest single release entitled “Mona Lisa” has captured the attention of many people due to its relatable, but yet poetic flow. The well-attended video release party for this track was held in September at the popular Young and Spiffy clothing store in Hartford. Knicolas is in the process of developing new music. He’s working on creating pieces to the beats of the well-known producer Marc Angelo. He’s also working on a self-titled EP, in which he will do all the producing, engineering, and writing. This EP will give listeners insight on the type of music to look forward to.
Knicolas has a diverse taste in music and he’s willing work with musicians, producers, and engineers in all aspects of the music industry. He hopes to establish his own record label and venture into other lanes such as clothing and liquor. In the meantime, look out for Knicolas’ upcoming projects and check out his new video Mona Lisa.
