Kirkis

Kirkis is an Australian composer and multi-disciplinary artist from Melbourne, Australia.

Majoring in painting at Sydney College of The Arts marked the beginning of his creative career, eventually taking him to New York where he temporarily relocated for further study at the New York Arts Students League.

While there his creative works shifted to music, and in 2009 he successfully released Purple Fruit for X-ray Vision, a collection of demos, online.

These demo recordings were met with worldwide radio play from the likes of KCRW’s Anthony Valdez, and BBC6’s Gilles Peterson.

Since then, a string of EP’s and 7”’s have been released through UK record label Eglo Records. Kirkis has come off a busy 2016 touring worldwide to critical acclaim with rising UK artist Floating Points.
