Bio

Kirklandd is a multifaceted artist, songwriter and instrumentalist, based between Canberra and Sydney. Having written with the likes of Genesis Owusu, Dylan Joel, Citizen Kay, Lucy Sugerman, Taka Perry, Lil Spacely, Chelsea Warner and more, Kirklandd has developed a unique songwriting style, grounded in hip-hop and drawing inspiration from alt-pop and nostalgia punk. Working with producer Cam Bluff (Amy Shark, Allday), Kirklandd released his debut EP in 2020 titled ‘The Love Divide’. Blending elements of alt-rock, hip hop and pop, the project amassed over 160,000 streams online since its release, and was met with editorial support from Spotify (New Music Friday) and Apple Music (The New Australia). Kirklandd has performed with his live band at festivals including Spilt Milk, NYE on the Hill and Groovin’ the Moo as triple j Unearthed's competition winner in 2019. Crafting a new style with Sydney-based producer Taka Perry, Kirklandd has shared snippets of this new direction online and at his recent live shows with his band, teasing a genreless new direction for his follow up to The Love Divide.
