Bliss Carmxn is the current project of Canadian-born writer and musician Adam Kaasa, artist on Wicked Hag records in Berlin. His latest single ‘Call Me By My Name’ is out on the compilation album ‘Peak Shame’ with Wicked Hag records. His track ‘Alone Together’ appears on Wicked Hag records’ second release, ‘Crush Fiction’ (2017). Bliss’ music is unashamed dream-pop with electro, disco and folk roots. Composed on the piano, the songs are intimate explorations of love and loss, of sex and ambition, of home and kinship. The vocal melodies melt like honey on cactus leaves next to swimming pools of deep bass above shaking bubble-gum beats. Bliss is a queer performer, a prairie soul, an all you can eat buffet.
He performs live as a solo act, and collaborates across performance and dance-theatre, most recently at The Glory’s ‘WERK in Progress’, and in Stefan Jovanovíc’s forthcoming show ‘Constellations’ at Sadler’s Wells Theatre (2019).
Demo releases include ‘This Is Me’ (EP, 2017) written, performed, recorded and produced in a week in April 2017. ‘Tile’ (2016) is a two-part project transcribing mosaic tile patterns from Eastbourne, UK and from Hamilton, Canada into two four-song albums.
He works between London and Berlin.
