ALTERNATIVE/BLUES/ROCK “One of the Northwood’s best and busiest musicians” is how the Northwoods Live Music Calendar describes Scott Kirby, an alternative blues rock singer/songwriter living in northern Wisconsin. Don Burnstick describes what Kirby has simply as “mojo”. It’s that mojo that is Kirby’s signature sound.
Kirby has been exploring guitar and writing songs since the age of twelve. Kirby’s wide range of influences helped hone his individual voice in songwriting. He notes his larger inspirations to be Bob Dylan, Neil Young, REM, Tom Petty, Stevie Wonder, and Johnny Cash. Band Camp Diaries says, “He has a unique approach to blending melody and attitude that makes me think of modern artists such as The Fray or Daughtry, just to mention a few.”
Kirby has nine album releases to his name (Long Way Home, Apple Love, Good Morning Jo, B Tapes Vol 1, A Day On The Lake, Live at CT’s Deli, November Snow, live at the little brown jug, ep 2018), and amped up his sound with his 2017 single ‘Love Is Just’, produced by Grammy winning producer Jeff Bova (Album of the Year, Celine Dion, Falling Into You).
Now, Scott is letting his inner Blues Rock persona shine in his new single, ‘Something to Move.’ releases September 7, 2018. From Sleeping Bag Studios, “Scott’s got a solid scorcher here that’s bursting with rhythm & passion at the seams…another great tune from what’s clearly an artist that gives everything he’s got to his music, every time.” This charged track stirs up swampy, gritty images and reminds us that the Blues are timeless. A modern take on the backbone of popular music, ‘Something To Move’ is a driving, vivid depiction of life outside popular culture.
Scott is one talented musician you won’t want to miss!
