He is currently contributing his skills on guitar, bass, keys and vocals to a tour with Chet Faker, promoting the release of “Built on Glass,” which has taken the band to sold out venues all over the world. Kirk has also performed and toured with Skaters, Rush Midnight, Misty Boyce, Alexz Johnson, The Bright Silence, and Companion, his own collaborative project headed by Pepi Ginsberg, who released their debut album in 2012.
