The proud father of 2 beautiful daughters, Kirk is an aspiring Artist / Musician and a certified Vinyl Junkie and is best described with this quote: “Music is my sanctuary, Music is life”

With an open ear to many musical styles, you’ll hear a selection of Soul, Funk, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Hip Hop, 80’s classics, Breakbeat, Reggae and anything with a killer bassline. “I try to keep the show interesting for myself and most importantly for the listeners”.

“Getting my music out there is what I love to do”. With this in mind, Kirk has played various bars / clubs including Galatos, Verona, Tabac, Rakinos, Britomart Country Club, Barrio, Sale Street and Racket, aswell as the occasional party & other functions.

    Hi Kirk
    Listening March 5 and heard a track you were loving around 11.15am. All I caught was ‘ Human beings and ‘… you said the album was nice and cinematic and it was on bandcamp – I would love to find it. I am on bandcamp so keen to know. Thanks so much.

    Hey Kirk, love your show bro! Found you on Mixcloud. Aussie digital nomad travelling the world, currently in Spain. Always nice to have consistently sweet tunes where ever I am. Seems like you’ve taken some influence from Rob Luis / Tru Thoughts. Whether of not that’s the case, your format and delivery sound very reminiscent of his ‘Unfolds’ show…. He’s awesome so nice one! Keep it up man!
