Shaun Kirk joins Clem on Live Sunday Sessions this Sunday 4pm
Join Clem on the Live Sunday Sessions this Sunday at 4pm on 88.3 Southern FM for an hour of live blues from Melbourne’s hottest rising bluesman, Shaun Kirk.
Having only picked up a guitar for the first time in 2004 at age 16, Shaun Kirk has achieved a great deal in such a short time. Discovering a passion for story telling and an undeniable connection with the guitar, Shaun won the 2006 Basin Music Festival Youth Songwriting Competition and was a top five finalist of the 2008 Queenscliff Music Festival, Foot In The Door Competition in the Blues/Roots & Beyond division. 2008 also saw the release of his first independent EP, ‘Seagulls’; which showcases Shaun’s thought-provoking lyrical style, which arguably comes from a place beyond his tender age.
His sound, while based in blues/roots and folk, has developed from influences ranging from Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson, David Bowie, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Jeff Lang, John Lee Hooker and Harry Manx. However, Shaun continues to develop his own sound; mixing his natural groove with a broad range of musical styles, and is now one of Melbourne’s hardest working independent artists.
