His riveting trek began in his childhood home, listening to the beautiful sounds of his sister’s classical piano playing, igniting a spark that would blossom into a deep love of creating music. Already gaining acclaim, Kass is set to bring joy and inspiration to listeners everywhere with his coming-of-age story and original compositions.

Produced by Grammy-nominated Billy Mohler, the latest release takes you on a fanciful journey into a dreamlike state of existence, revealing a new side to Kass as his songs usually come from a “dark, primordial place.”


With “Formidable (For Me Dabla),” Kass’ lyrics explore the importance of embracing joy and letting go of heaviness. Adoringly, the song was inspired by the childhood memory of his sister.

“When I was a kid, my sister and I used to watch scary movies,” shared Kass in a press release. “She always made sure that we watched an episode of Friends afterward, to cleanse us of cinematic trauma.” He comments, “That’s what this song is.”
