Kirk Wheeler's music works under the principal that the whole is a sum of it's parts. The son of an air-force officer, Kirk was born in Montana, but lived in Colorado, Hawaii, England and Virginia before ending up a the University of North Texas to study music. Eventually receiving a Film Degree, Kirk interned in a 24-track recording studio and moved to - where else? - Los Angeles to work in sound for Film & TV. However, his travels and love of the music he heard growing up - Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, The Kingston Trio, and even a shot of Abba thanks to Mom & Dad - soon steered him back to music. Kirks' first release in 1997 was as Jitterwheel. NOTHING TO CARRY was the sound of a young artist finding his voice. Airplay in Sweden and Australia was the impetuous to record PELICAN SOUP in 1999 under his own name, and even shoot a video for that release's 'Butterfly In Chains.' 2002 saw Kirk's new excursion as a 'band.' START FROM ZERO was released by Honey People and was the most realized project Kirk had released up to that point. Now, more of Kirk's later influences (The Police, Bruce Springsteen, Townes Van Zant and AC/DC) were coming to the fore - hardening the edges, but not diluting what was pure inside. More of a 'rock' record than Kirk had previously recorded, the dynamics of production were finally truly meshing with his musical vision, paving the way for 2005's GOOD COMPANY. Again released under Kirk Wheeler's name, GOOD COMPANY was produced by Zac Rae, the in-demand session keyboardist who also tours with Alanis Morissette. The album was recorded over two weekends with a group of friends, who all happen to be great musicians. With Zac's help and a collaborative understanding of not only where music had been, but where it is going, Kirk Wheeler has made the definitive record of his career. So far...
