We recently had the pleasure of meeting up for an intimate Editorial shoot with KAGE. An emerging Artist, Songwriter & Producer from Toronto. We kept things really raw & intimate by shooting everything in & around his home. Using everything from his kitchen floor to his home studio, climbed up on the rooftop, squeezed in the laneway & even a fun projector set up in his bedroom!
This project was also another chance to collaborate with Jonathan Poirier III, KAGE‘s Manager as well as Founder of IronShore Films & Partner of Untamed Music Inc. We have had the pleasure of working together on Multiple shoots in the past with artist like Gifty Singh, Sean Paul as well as a shoot for Jonathan III himself in LA which started our decade long collaboration.
Working with KAGE was a truly rewarding experience & we’re really honoured to have had the opportunity to tell a part of his story. We will definitely be following KAGE on his Artistic Journey & look forward to shooting with him again soon!
From northkage.com —
“Born and Raised in Toronto, Kalen Gibbons aka KAGE, is poised to become a music legend.
This singer/songwriter/producer is already being compared to some of the biggest names in the industry.
His raspy cadence and unique delivery will captivate you from the first note, while his versatile wordplay, and perceptive subject matter keep you engaged.
In a crowded and often underwhelming market, KAGE stands out as a breath of fresh air, with a relatable style that appeals to listeners of all ages. A charismatic presence reminiscent of a young James Dean, his unique blend of confidence and allure makes him standout from the crowd.
Kage is currently in the studio with super producer T-Minus (J.Cole, Drake, etc), as well as the talented Alex Messenger Justin Beiber).
This young talent is destined for greatness!
KAGE teams up with North Carolina native YSB TRIL on the summer smash. “BACK IN”. “
