Bassist, singer-songwriter-guitarist, and producer Kimon Kirk's 2021 release Altitude is his first solo album in ten years. Having toured and recorded with Gaby Moreno, Aimee Mann, Alejandro Escovedo, Session Americana, Amy Correia, Grant-Lee Phillips, and Sarah Borges, and penned songs with Grammy-winners Mann and Lori McKenna, Kirk steps into the spotlight on vocals and guitar, leading his crack five-piece band. Altitude's lush-but-understated production results in an album that "shines a golden melodic light on the darker corners of the human soul, beguiling the listener onto a higher plane. It’s a combination of penetrating intelligence and unapologetic catchiness that’s rare, but shouldn’t be." (The Daily Vault)
