Rashad D. Hawkins released Urban Classical 1.5 with little initial promotion. Urban Classical 1.5 is a half-step project that expands on the new and innovative Urban Classical series. The feel of Urban Classical 1.5 is a little heavier on the classical than the urban but still brings a fresh blend of traditional music and modern grit. This new EP has quietly confirmed that Rashad D. Hawkins is committed to finally using his musical talents to seriously create a legacy for himself as an artist. Rashad recently signed a partnership deal with Symphonic Distribution.
Though a “music deal” is completely out of character for the award-winning activist, this specific situation gives him more access to industry systems and models while allowing him to remain completely independent and in control of his career and public presence. The Urban Classical series is just the start for Hawkins, his new team, growing listeners, and loyal supporters are excited to see where he takes this next. A debut studio album has been confirmed to be in the works. With his eclectic style and mastery of several genres, it is an exciting time for music.
