Bio

After taking a year to refine his sound, Canberra hip hop artist Kirklandd has returned with his recent single, ‘Impulse’, taking out triple j Unearthed’s Groovin the Moo competition in his hometown and receiving a nod from his earliest musical inspiration, Lupe Fiasco.

‘Impulse’ affirms Kirklandd’s distinct 90s-inspired delivery and ear for contemporary production. A former cello player, Kirklandd possesses a love for live instrumentation that shines through in his music, creating a unique sound with co-producers Cam Bluff (Allday) and Citizen Kay.

Following his national tour support for Ivan Ooze and performances with Boo Seeka, Arno Faraji and Seth Sentry, Kirklandd has just announced the national tour for Impulse, supported nationally by Zellow and featuring special guests Daniel Elia and Reggi Gibbs.

The release of Impulse sees Kirklandd continue his role as the first Australian artist ambassador for Global Citizen, alongside fellow ambassadors Jay Z, Coldplay and Rihanna. Through their partnership, he hopes to shed light on current global issues, and inspire those that hear his music to become a direct part of the change they hope to see in the world.

Bit of a golden team up on this one! Paces through with an emotional dip.

A heater from Kirklandd. He's stacked the deck in his favour by working with Zellow, Cam Bluff and Citizen Kay.
