Kirin J Callinan: search under guitarist, activist, nudist.
Walking the fine line between poseur and provocateur is what makes Kirin J Callinan such a fascinating artist. His music is berserk, brilliant, original - pompous enough to cut through and engage, with the right balance of humanity to remain important.
In 2017 we will see Kirin release a second album, tour the US with Pond, the UK with Mac Demarco, making his acting debut in acclaimed director Jane Campions "Top of the Lake" series 2, and then arrive at Splendour in the Grass with a stage full of collaborators.
This follows a cycle of recording and touring internationally that includes opening for Tame Impala at the celebrated Hollywood Forever Cemetery shows, a glittering set at Paris Pitchfork festival, lifting the funkadelia across both the Mark Ronson album and live shows, and opening for Crowded House at the sold out Opera House forecourt shows at the invitation of Neil Finn. Kirin J Callinan is rightly regarded as one of Australia's most notorious artists.
