Kirby plays Golden Taps

Fresh off the release of his new album, Into The Dark, Kirby is out on the road, and will be playing a show at the Golden Taps on Aug. 10.

Fronting Burlington, Ontario prog-rock band, First Time Fallen, for several years he released his first solo EP Within These Walls in 2007 before taking the figurative plunge with his next EP The Good Fight, in 2008.

Hitting the road for the first of many solo tours across Canada over the next few years and now with his new release Into The Dark,  Kirby is poised and ready for the next step.

Displaying his true passion, as he belts out emotional lyrics right from the bottom of his heart, coupled with the diversity of both a driving rock strum style and quiet thoughtful picking on the guitar, reminiscent of Nick Drake, John Mayer or Dallas Green.

In the short time that he has put the gears to the indie music scene, Kirby has enjoyed many notable experiences such as appearing at ArtsWells Festival, the C&C Music Festival and the Burlington Sound of Music Festival.

He’s shared the stage with the likes of The Watchmen, Wax Mannequin, and Lindy of Major Maker, among others, and received regular rotation on C101 Mohawk Radio for The Good Fight EP. Kirby also started C&B Records, which has released multiple compilations of independent artists under the Mix Tape Series.

Into The Dark is a glimpse into the psyche of a man whose spent the last three years touring Canada, crossing the country numerous times.

Kirby’s second official release, wrestles the ideas of hostile despair, anguish of being unable to change, the worthlessness of envy and the desire to be wanted so unconditionally. The EP works towards summarizing the vast enormity of his experiences into seven calculated, succinct booms of folk-pop passion and interwoven with hook filled melody.
