Bio

A unique member of Canberra’s burgeoning music scene, Kirklandd has garnered a growing following through his diverse style of hip hop. Having performed at festivals last year including Groovin’ the Moo, Spilt Milk and New Year’s Eve on the Hill, Kirklandd is now approaching the release of his debut EP ‘The Love Divide’.

Produced by Cam Bluff (Amy Shark, Allday) and mixed by Citizen Kay, 'The Love Divide' encapsulates moments experienced in a recent relationship, seeing Kirklandd shift from his hip hop roots into a new alt-pop direction.

To accompany the EP, Kirklandd has formed an 8-piece band during isolation for ‘The Love Divide Experience’, a 3 part-virtual tour in partnership with Support Act. Performing songs from his earlier mixtapes and ‘The Love Divide’, Kirklandd and his band will be raising funds for Support Act during the streams, assisting those affected by COVID-19 in the Australian music industry.

Having just received a nomination in the National Live Music Awards as ‘Best Live Act' in Canberra, Kirklandd is fast approaching the release of the EP in October, accompanied by a new song that he promises will be the track of the summer.
