One of the most exciting talents to emerge from the Australian music scene today is singer, songwriter and multi- instrumentalist Shaun Kirk. Hailed for his electrifying live shows, Shaun’s one-man-band set up of guitars, harmonicas, pedals and gadgets, must be seen to be believed.
Since 2010 Shaun Kirk has released three records, ‘Cruisin’, ‘Thank You for Giving Me the Blues’ and his latest release, a live album and accompanying DVD entitled ‘The Wick Sessions’. One reviewer notes, “The powerful voice matched with the foot tapping tunes and raw and honest lyrics, the album is the whole package” (The Dwarf). Shaun has played at a number of Australia’s prolific music festivals including Byron Bay Bluesfest and Port Fairy Folk Festival as well as being billed alongside artists such as Ben Harper, The Blind Boy of Alabama, Taj Mahal, Bonnie Raitt, Joe Bonamassa and Big Bill Morganfield (descendant of the late great Muddy Waters). His popularity with audiences saw him voted as the winner of the ‘Youth People’s Choice’ award at the Blues at Bridgetown 2012 as well as ‘Best New Artist’ at the St Kilda Festival in 2013.
