Bio

"2017 could be the year Kirklandd shoots onto everyone’s radar as Australian hip-hop’s next mainstay… carving a reputation for bridging the energy of the nineties with an ambitious eye for contemporary creativity" – The Interns

A student of hip hop’s golden era, and a lover of jazz, punk and electronic music, Kirklandd has developed a unique sound in Australian hip hop. Revealing an old school, dynamic style in his recent singles produced by Cam Bluff (Amy Shark – Adore), Kirk has gained radio rotation on Triple J Unearthed, and plays across Triple J and MTV following his first national tour.

With his good friend and punk rock drummer, Josh Bates, Kirklandd has formed a distinctly old school live performance. He’s opened for artists including Seth Sentry, Dylan Joel, Citizen Kay and Coda Conduct, teasing his unreleased singles with Cam at every show.

Kirklandd aspires to push boundaries within the genre, both lyrically and sonically, and hopes to stake his claim as an anomaly in the Australian scene with his upcoming single, ‘FADED’.

At first I wasn't sure, and it's taken me a few listens, but now i'm REALLY into this. It's the Fresh Prince theme turned 2016.

Probably the best I've heard from this artist - also great to hear Genesis on this energetic beat too.
