Kirby Heyborne – Unforgettable
Los Angeles, CA - Kirby Heyborne is an insightful singer-songwriter whose warm voice and intricate guitar color his albums and live performances. His Folky/Pop music is inspired by life's moments and those closest to him: his wife, children, friends and family. His touchingly simple, yet texturally complex music has earned him numerous accolades and countless devoted fans.
Kirby has released five successful albums, performed across the country, and has songs featured in four films. The release of his latest album, "The Elm Tree," is his "most compelling and best yet", says producer Nathan DeVore. Kirby's sound is reminiscent of great artists like Paul Simon, Josh Radin, Jack Johnson, and David Wilcox. His music is "evocative, honest, and beautiful; every song is emotive and brilliant, soulful and interesting."
"I love it. Your sound is soothing, inspirational, flowing. Your sound is a combination of Dylan, Taylor, Stevens and Lennon. The words are so visual the pictures they paint in the mind are as clear as a morning after a summers rain…. Thank you"
Darlene - The World As I Der See It
"Kirby's acoustic-based folk is touchingly simple, yet texturally complex, and the strength of his lyrics are in their honesty."
