KYRK is one of the more respected, up-and-coming artists in Charlotte, North Carolina. A do-it-all singer/songwriter/actor, KYRK wears many hats but is true to himself and his roots - which is why he brings a Reggae/Dancehall/Inspirational element to the Queen City’s music scene. With the impending release of his latest single “Melody Makers,” his fourth single in two years, the authenticity and passion he fuses into his music is beginning to catch the ears of those in the industry - but being real and remaining true to himself is nothing new for the Kingston, Jamaica- born artist.
“My music is 100% me,” KYRK says. “God’s blessed me with this incredible gift and all I can do is stay true to Him and let the gift in me shine through my craft.”
While many may see the music videos on YouTube and the promotional material scattered throughout social media, make no mistake there’s no ‘posing’ when it comes time rock the mic.
“This isn’t a fad for me, KYRK declared. “I go wherever God leads me. This music is medicine to me … my lyrics are a representation of my world and I do my best to write them so they’re relatable.”
With sincerity and testimony coupled throughout his songs, KYRK creates a universal connection that can reach anyone, no matter where they are or what point of life they’re in.
KYRK’s last single, “The Antidote,” was released last year before he took some time off from music. But in his sabbatical he found motivation in the form of new friendships that would eventually grow into the group now known as T.U.K The Movement.
Mr. Wood$ (Hip-hop), Big Bronze (Trap Rap), and Jus K (R&B Soul) are the other elements of T.U.K The Movement. With such different genres and personalities, it’s natural to assume chemistry would be an issue for these four highly successful artists to come together - but, as KYRK will tell you, they came together as “family first, and business partners second.”
KYRK is now a proud member of T.U.K The Movement, but as much as he enjoys creating music, he grasps the importance of the need to give back to the very industry he loves.
KYRK is responsible for building a Virginia-based production/management company (Phantom Enterprise) from the ground up, and has helped mold and shape the sound of Hip-Hop artists H.E.C.T.I.C., Pop artist Daniel, and Christian artist M.L. Hardy.
Since returning to the studio and joining T.U.K The Movement, KYRK has been seen on stage with artists such as Montel Jordon, K-Ci and JoJo, Destiny Child, Brown Stone, Christopher Williams, Born Jamericans, The Fugees, Billy Lawrence, Keyshia Cole, Fantasia, Red Man, Method Man, Lyfe Jennings, Jada Kiss, Keith Murray and many more.
“I put much of my personal life into my music because, you never know who you can reach,” KYRK says. “I’ve received so many thank you letters from people all over the world telling me how much my music gives them joy. I’ve literally changed lives with my music and that, to me, is the ultimate blessing.”
