Shaun's profile and recognition as a talented performer has steadily grown over the past 18 months, supporting artists such as Joe Bonamassa, Big Bill Morganfield (son of the late great Muddy Waters), Diesel, Ash Grunwald and Mia Dyson as well as appearing in the line-up at many of Australia's top festivals; Woodford Folk Festival, St Kilda Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival and Byron Bay Bluesfest where he has been billed with the likes of Robert Plant, Taj Mahal, John Mayer, Ben Harper, Bonnie Raitt, Gary Clark Jr and Santana. He was voted the 'Youth People's Choice Award' at the 2012 Blues at Bridgetown Festival, as well as winning the public's vote for 'Best New Artist' at the 2013 St Kilda Festival, substantiating his increasing popularity with the punters.
The forthcoming album 'Steer the Wheel' is Kirk's most experimental and electrified record to date, seeing him explore beyond the blues influences that have characterised his previous work. Shaun attributes the recent purchase of a record player and a rapidly growing vinyl collection to the shift in his song writing. With influences ranging from rock, soul and rhythm & blues. 'Steer the Wheel' is a collaborative record, which has enjoyed an inclusive approach from conception to completion.
