Meet Killiam Shakespeare, listen to Killiam Season 1
Killiam Shakespeare is Philly-based collective, led by drummer and producer Steve McKie and keyboardist and producer Corey Bernhard. Having released their debut album in 2015, they’re back with a new mixtape that they worked on in collaboration with Philly’s DJ Jazzy Jeff, Killiam Season 1.
The band released their debut album in 2015, a Christmas EP, and now return with a excellent collection of stylistically diverse, genre-hopping songs that features a handful of heavy musical hitters including singers Lana Knight, Noel Scales, Cody Wise, rappers Freeway and Val Strasser. Other performers on the collection include multi-instrumentalist, producer, Adam Blackstone (who has worked with Jay Z, Eminem, Rihanna), bassist Wayne Moore (recently on tour with Beck and Pharrell), and Aaron Draper (currently on tour with Adele).
Killiam Season 1 traverses through hip-hop, R&B, jazz, funk, and a few instrumentals that showcases the band’s musical expertise. It’s an incredible musical adventure. Listen and download the mixtape below.
The band have an upcoming shows at Silk City on August 28th.
