Composer Steve Kirk blends eclecticism and his own unique style to create a voice that resonates across the music industry with distinction, raising the bar for what it means for music to be of the top shelf variety. From the organic to the electronic, from pop to symphonic, whatever it is, it is uniquely Kirk’s, and it takes no time at all to recognize this flavorful artistic voice and its one-of-a-kind signature personality, regardless of which of his marvelous pieces you are listening to. “I work in a variety of genres, although most people say that what I write is easily identifiable as my work, no matter the style.”
“I’ve done work for independent feature films, television, animation, radio, commercials and video games, as well as my personal work in the alternative pop genre,” says Kirk. His abilities cover a broad ground, allowing him to tackle a variety of musical flavors and to master each and every one to which he sets his hand. He’s an arranger, guitarist and singer, “encompassing everything from multimedia to modern chamber music.” But whatever it is he’s got his hands on, his goal is to do something new with it, take it in a different direction. In other words, whatever the genre, he makes it his own; he makes it the product of Steve Kirk.
Commercialism has its place, but it must take a back seat to creativity, says Kirk. Art must not be confined by artificial parameters that only serve to cramp the artist. It’s also vital that the music has substance. Depth and thoughtfulness, Kirk believes, are key ingredients to the generation of music that possesses real artistic worth. “Any music in any style can be compelling if it has meaning and is not negatively affected or corrupted due to misguided commercial considerations.”
Kirk nabbed the job of writing, arranging and recording in excess of three hours of music for Microsoft’s Voodoo Vince video game. He also landed the task of doing the music for the television series “Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat,” along with fellow members of the Club Foot Orchestra. And now? “I’m currently working on a musical with playwright Robert Pickett called ‘Sydney Town.’ It’s based on life in San Francisco before and during the gold rush.” Kirk admits that he’s always busy with his fingers in “one musical project or another,” be it writing, recording, producing – whatever. Music is always a part of his life. His new compact disc “Pop Quiz” has been released. He is working with A&R Select, the leading independent A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
“As impressive as Kirk’s versatility is his ability to master whatever style in which he is working at any given time.” – A&R Select
