Kirby Brown was born in Deep East Texas, raised in the Ozark foothills of north central Arkansas, and has since spent much of his life traversing an orbit between New York City, Nashville, and his mother state of Texas.
From the idyllic, religious farm family he grew up in to the literary creative communities of NYC, Brown's music is a synthesis of seemingly-disparate influences. His writing channels the long narrative of the American songbook without nostalgia — it bears the torch of traditional form while simultaneously showcasing an entirely original artist. His latest record, Uncommon Prayer, finds Kirby at his finest — at-once affable and conversational, while still peeling back the layers of himself and the world around him. A "Poet Laureate of the Everyman," Kirby's writing proves to cast an uncommon, redemptive hue onto a seemingly common world.
