G’Day, I’ve been asked to write a few lines about myself, so here goes,
I was born & raised in Cairns Far North Qld, left home at 14 & went bush.
I spent the next 15 years as a Ringer & Horse breaker then came to town, married & had 3 children as most of us do. I became a dry wall plasterer for a while but the bush called me back.
I spent the next 11 years alternating between Bull catching & Plastering, as a contractor.
In amongst all of this I learned to play guitar in a sort of a fashion and began singing country music around the local Rodeos,Camp-drafts & Pubs, fairly successfully.
Year 2000 saw me divorced, 2005 saw me remarried. In 2012 my Wife & I met Kelly Dixon, lyric & songwriter for Slim Dusty & many other Australian recording artists.
Marie (my wife) & Kelly persuaded me to record a CD of Kelly’s material ( for posterity they said ). I bought & learned to use good quality studio recording gear & the results are on this web site. We, as KDDK Music, went on to record 2 charity fund raiser Cd’s & a second commercial CD. All CD’s have seen airplay around Australia .
If you are reading this you are on the web site, so hit the play button & have a listen, I hope you enjoy the music. All tracks were recorded & mastered by me in our studio on our front veranda . Between Marie & I we have 7 children & 8 grand kids with one on the way .
Kind Regards Dave Kirk.
