Hailing from the music filled streets of Melbourne, Australia; award winning blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk is a born entertainer who’s world class live show is pushing the boundaries and taking audiences by storm.
Kirk’s gritty vocal abilities come from a place beyond his years and has seen him labelled as “one of the finest blues voices Australia has ever heard” (Buzz Mag); whilst his vintage guitar tones and raw grooves pay homage to his influences of both yesteryear and today to create a sound of his own.
Following the release of his new single ‘Howlin at the Moon’, co produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Mick Turner) earlier this year; Kirk’s subsequent launch tour achieved some then sold out shows across Australia and New Zealand, as well as another appearance at the world famous Bluesfest, Byron Bay.
