DearHead Press – March 2012

Shaun Kirk shows the oldies how it’s done. My faith in this generation’s music has been restored. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard a quality blues artist under 30 who is not attempting to recreate the sounds of John Lee Hooker. Shaun Kirk’s first full-length studio album strays from your average

12-bar melodies whilst still retaining a soulful sound. Kirk will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Robert Johnson throughout this album, especially with his track Chicken & Corn, a comical look at life on the road for an independent musician. Although some may argue that Kirk’s choruses are repetitive, my foot didn’t stop tapping along to the catchy and dirty guitar tones and infectious grooves. Blues fans rejoice.
