DIRK KROLL moved from southern California to metro-Detroit at a young age with both a Sonny Rollins and an Eddie Cochran album in tow.
In no time, he fell in love with the Motown sound showcasing the power of strong vocal delivery combined with fantastic melodies. The singer-songwriter's influences include early British Pop-Rock from across the Atlantic and back, Blues, Funk, Ska and elements of Americana. Nominated for several Detroit Music Awards over the years including awarded Outstanding Rock Songwriter for Detroit Music Awards 2020, Kroll fronts DIRK KROLL BAND, a cadre of seasoned performers. Adding horns, keyboards, guitars and blended vocal harmonies to a genre-spanning body of work lends itself to Kroll's storied songs. Kroll recorded the 2018 ten song compilation " This Broken Play" featuring a soaring piano torch song, a ska-infused topical ditty and a Blues-based Rocker with some attitude. New songs are cooking on the back burner, looking forward ! https://thedirkkrollband.com
