Hip-hop/R&B act K-Riz performs as part of NMC Presents: Bell Live at the King Eddy.

About K-Riz
K-Riz is part of a new generation of melodic MCs who can rap circles around their opponents and sing to their verses with equal aplomb. His brand of hip-hop is marked by sensitive, self-aware lyricism, ’90s-inspired R&B, and futuristic beats. Listing the titans of R&B-inspired pop and jazz-oriented rap as his influences, from Stevie Wonder to Nas and Michael Jackson to J Dilla, the Toronto-born, Edmonton-bred artist absorbs and spits out the specters of other eras while remaining spiritually in the present. With his sophomore album, Peace & Love, he recounts coming out on the other side of pain and heartbreak. Not a breakup album per se, but a record that captures his personal breakthrough as a result of the fallout. Peace & Love follows his critically-hailed The Room EP (2020), which drew praise from Complex for “quietly establishing himself as one of Alberta’s deftest lyricists.” K-Riz was also recently named as a Black Canadian artist you need to know by Angeline Tetteh-Wayoe of CBC’s The Block, and listed among the Canadian artists you need to hear by Exclaim.

Sound production equipment for the King Eddy is provided by PK Sound and Yamaha.
