Comprised of Isaac Carree, LaShawn “Big Shiz” Daniels, Adonis Shropshire, Eric Dawkins and Gerald Haddon, KlarKent represents a powerhouse (pun intended) of creative music-heads who’ve come together to make more Kingdom music. In addition to their individual projects in and out of gospel music, they’re also responsible for songs by Mary Mary, Brandy, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Rihanna, R. Kelly, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Usher and more.
We caught up with the guys in Baltimore and they say they’re about 90 percent finished with their upcoming album that will include their recent single “Oh My God” (featured on the Saints & Sinners: Original Soundtrack from Season 1), which blends a bunch of those sounds to produce hip, inspiring messages. That is, in addition to the traditional worship music they’re known for.
Below, KlarKent describes their collaboration process, reacts to criticism of their diverse sound, opens up about their forthcoming album and runs down who’s who in the group!
