Shaun Kirk is the wonderkid of the Australian blues scene. Having only picked up a guitar for the first time in 2004 at the age of 16, his four records and well over four hundred shows in the last four years is quite remarkable.

Since his award winning debut album Cruisin, Shaun has charmed audiences throughout Australia, captivating people with his style of boogie blues and soul. His first full length album Thank You For Giving Me The Blues shot to number one on the Australian Blues/Roots Airplay Charts in early 2012. This album showed his musical maturity along with his dedication, passion and vigour for the genre, which was highlighted in his instrumentals and energetic grooves on the record.

He’s pretty damn cool too. Shaun is multi-talented and plays individual drums with his feet while he sings, plays guitar and harmonica/harp. You also might have seen him busking in some parts of the country as his profile and recognition as a talented performer has steadily grown over the past 18 months.

Shaun’s rising popularity was evident at the 2013 St Kilda Festival as he was voted Best New Artist, then his ambition continued with his latest album, Steer The Wheel, released earlier this year. This record shows his bold and creative personality seeing him explore beyond blues influences- to rock and soul. He is gigging all over the country and has just been announced on the bill at Caloundra Music Festival in Queensland alongside some of the biggest names in Oz music. His career seems to be soaring and gathering lots of momentum and with potential like Shaun has, the possibilities are endless.

If you want to check out Shaun in action, he’s featuring at Davey’s Hotel, 510 Nepean Hwy Frankston as part of their Sunday Soultrain this Sunday 15th February 2.30pm. Free entry.
