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 ‘Howlin at the Moon’ in early 2018, Kirk’s subsequent launch tour achieved some 10 sold out shows across Australia & New Zealand, as well as another appearance at the world famous Bluesfest, Byron Bay. His latest single ‘Save My Soul’ co-produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Mick Turner) is out now.

- Matt Andersen

turn them into dedicated fans.”
- Andy McLean (CEO of the East Coast Music Association, Canada)
"His shows are nothing short of an experience."
- Diesel (6 x ARIA Award Winning Artist)
