Kirk's musical conquest began while he was in college at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. While there, Kirk played in an acoustic duo band called "Two Better Halves" singing lead vocals, harmonies, and playing guitar. Two Better Halves played hundreds of shows at many different universities across the state of Indiana. After college, Kirk moved his act to the Lone Star State and settled in the great city of Houston, Texas. Houston became the foreground that launched Kirk's solo career. He began feverishly writing his own songs and honing his live performances at countless singer-songwriter showcases all over Southeast Texas. This eventually led Kirk to record his first album entitled "Cautionary Tales & Dimestore Advise" in 1998. After moderate success of his first album, Kirk decided to move back to his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. Taking a break from his solo career, Kirk formed a full band called "Bar Lights" which comprised of some of the best musical talent in the city of Indianapolis. Bar Lights quickly became a popular act in Indianapolis drawing a strong following and fan base by playing at many local venues. Bar Lights also received praise from several DJs at ZPL99.5 in Indianapolis and was also voted as one of the best local bands in the city. After the lights were "turned off" for Bar Lights, Kirk decided to refocus on his solo career. Kirk quickly established himself in the local music scene and has continuously had steady gigs all over the Midwest. Since reviving his solo career, Kirk has been ready to expand even further and take his act to the next level.

In 2007, Kirk began working on a new album with fellow Bar Lights member and musician/producer extraordinaire, Matt Scutt, at his studio in Chicago, Illinois. After a year's worth of work and countless long hours in the studio, the new album was finally finished. Ten years after Kirk's debut album was released, "Letters You'll Never Send" was released on February 14, 2008. With this album, Kirk created a very distinctive sound filled with good vibes and brilliant melodies. Kirk's lyrics are unabashedly honest and his passion for playing is undying. "Letters You'll Never Send" creates a sonic percussive assault mixed with a vivid, melodic instrumental bed, shaken with a twist of passionate vocal lines. "Letters You'll Never Send" was so enticing that it caught the attention of the Hollister Clothing Company. They picked the song "Seasons" to be featured on their "Lounge Room" page on the company's website with several other big name artists. Hollister then picked up another one of Kirk's songs off of "Letters You'll Never Send" called "Fine" for their summer "Lounge Room" lineup. "Letters You'll Never Send" can be purchased from iTunes worldwide, Amazon, Rhapsody, and directly from Kirk's website (

Kirk has just recently released a new single entitled "I Want To Be With You". The song features the beautiful voice of Julia Kay from Chicago, IL. The song was co-written and produced by Matthew Scutt in Chicago, IL and Austin, TX. "I Want To Be With You" was selected by the Hollister Clothing Company to be the soundtrack for their new Epic Hollister Store video and Epic Casting Video. It is for a national campaign ad to promote the new Epic Hollister store in New York City which opened July 16, 2009.
