Kirby BrownNYC 2015 / Video
Kirby Brown was born in East Texas and moved to rural Arkansas as the age of two. His formative years on the farm kept hm occupied bottle-feeding calves, fishing for crappie and shelling peas. His taste for music was also fostered here, being exposed to gospel, bluegrass and the classic country his grandfather would strum in the evenings. After the divorce of his parents, Kirby and his dad, a closeted poet, would spend visits diving into film, music and the nuances of American Poetry. He became as much interested in reading Whitman and Frost as he was in grade school or spending time with friends. This fresh form of expression would become the bedrock on which Kirby’s artistic life would be built. A star of The Outlaw Roadshow New York, Kirby’s sound rounds the edges of several different styles. Rocking and yet rustic, his sets can also be psychedelic and at times, intensely personal. He is a keen songwriter who leaves an indelible mark on his audiences. What you are about to witness in the first ever acoustic Outlaw video session with this rising star. Certainly something you’re going to want to see and someone you need to know!
