BLKBOK was an acclaimed piano prodigy, winning statewide accolades and college-level competitions. BLKBOKís live, high-energy performance is culturally reflective and seeks to entertain with a live piano based performance like none you've ever seen before.

Born and raised in Detroitís inner-city, BLKBOK (born Charles Wilson III), grew up in a music-filled house and by the time he was 8, BLKBOK was an acclaimed piano prodigy, winning statewide accolades and college-level competitions.

When it came to music, most of the kids he grew up with pursued hip-hop, adopting rap names.

However, itís no coincidence that Charles chose the name BLKBOK, which echoes that of one of the greatest pianists and composers of all time.

The tag is also an apt reflection of the elements that have contributed to the artistís identity and symbolizes his colorful journey from pop and hip-hop culture to his critically acclaimed, neo-classical debut album Black Book, and various Mixtape projects and collaborations.

BLKBOKís live, high-energy performance is culturally reflective and seeks to entertain with a live piano based performance like none you have ever seen before.

BLKBOKís vision is to illuminate awareness for all, encouraging dialogue and counterpoint in the way we perceive ourselves and the world we live in together.

BLKBOKís critically-acclaimed debut album Black Book, served as a founding cornerstone at the very first Juneteenth Foundationís Freedom Concert and was re-released as a DLUX Edition in June, with two new tracks, Forgotten Girls and Kendrick + Karine, covering relevant topics in mainstream culture, and in the voice that is uniquely BLKBOK.

His first Mixtape release, CVRART, and Mixtape project Angels Watching Over Me, with world-renowned tenor Lawrence Brownlee, illustrate the innovative and disruptive musical landscape that is BLKBOK.

His original track Stars (Ad Astra) was performed as the first-ever piano duet from Space in April 2022.
