With disarming lyrics that speak to the realities of love both found and lost, and songs that tell stories of a life that isn’t always perfect (but sometimes comes close) Kirk Thurmond’s smooth and soulful voice draws the listener into a world where problems can be honestly and earnestly expressed, and where you feel that it’s ok to not always be completely content. With songs such as “Like My Love,” “Leave that Girl Alone,” and “Superlover,” Kirk’s music can simply be described as honest. Seeking to convey an emotional rawness in his music that can all too often be lost as artists try to pursue the next crowd-pleasing hit, Kirk aims for one thing- genuinity (a word he made up). “I want people to know that when they listen to my songs, they’re hearing what I really feel – no holds barred,” says Kirk. “I try not to pull any punches in my writing, even if it makes me seem broken, because all too often that’s what we are- fragile and in pieces. If we were more honest with each other about how we don’t have it all together, I really believe things could change for all of us.” Kirk aims to let his friends and his fans know that the experiences they encounter are not theirs alone, that there is someone who understands the struggles and the pains of the everyday. He is more than willing to share his experiences with the world.
