Shaun Kirk

After a rapid rise to the forefront of the Australian modern blues movement, award winning multi-instrumentalist Shaun Kirk brings his high-energy blend of soul and blues to New Zealand, with his latest studio album, ‘Steer the Wheel’.

The new record came to life through a successful crowd funding campaign. Debuting at No. 1 on the Australian iTunes Blues Charts, ‘Steer the Wheel’ has been pinned as Kirk’s most electrified album to date, seeing him explore beyond the blues influences that have characterised his previous work. From conception to completion, this is a collaborative release, bringing in some big-name artists from the Australian music industry to record on the album.

A portion of profits from CD sales will be donated to Orphfund, a charity helping abandoned children around the globe.

Described by Triple J’s Maggie Collins as a ‘smooth, cool song’, the first single ‘Stitches’ is a soul-drenched ballad, driven by a Hammond organ groove and Kirk’s unwavering falsetto vocals. Country blues number ‘Two Hands on the Wheel’ features Shaun’s good friends Kyle and Dan Lizotte (Halfway to Forth) and sounds like the soundtrack to many a road trip. His blues influences are far from neglected, with songs like ‘Blues For My Birthday’, ‘Find Me A Lady’ and Tony Joe White’s ‘As the Crow Flies’ reflecting the sound he has become recognised for in his relatively short but impressive time as a performer. ‘Steer the Wheel’ is out now on iTunes.
