GET TO KNOW: Kris Karz (@MrKars2)


The Producer is a very important person when it comes to Music. Without their contributions, many of your favourite songs would have never been heard. No matter how good an Artist is, a Producer helps to direct and develop the talent. Recently we had a chat with Florida based Producer/Recording Artist/Musician, Kris Karz. Known for his “Kngly Live!” series on here, he has also been a part of some tracks featuring some members of the “New Wave” movement (Royal Blu, Kapital Stone, K. Charlz, Leno Banton).
