“He’s the East Coast music scene’s secret weapon!” - Colin MacDonald (The Trews)
Chances are you’ve heard a Chris Kirby song lately. The Newfoundland born, Halifax based award winning artist has co-written hits for The Trews, Matt Andersen, The East Pointers, Quote the Raven, and many more. Published through Sound of Pop, many of Chris’ songs have appeared in major television shows, commercials, indie films and documentaries.
Kirby is so in-demand as a songwriter, producer and musician that he rarely gets a chance to release his own music. These days he is most often found sitting behind a Hammond B3 organ on-stage or in-studio with Matt Andersen. Kirby has also toured with the likes of Alan Doyle, Amy Helm, Big Sugar and Wide Mouth Mason.
After a 7 year hiatus, Chris Kirby finally released a new album of original music in 2019. “What Goes Around” was widely embraced, delivered two East Coast Countdown #1 songs, and had a strong presence on national Earshot! charts.
“Close to You Again” is the latest single from Kirby, and hints at a new, contemporary roots direction for the artist.
