“Dirk Kroll crafts storied songs that take you somewhere. THE DIRK KROLL BAND delivers them. ”
THE DIRK KROLL BAND
DIRK KROLL moved from Southern California to Metro-Detroit at a young age with both a Sonny Rollins and an Eddie Cochron album in tow. It didn't take long to fall in love with the Motown sound showcasing the power of strong vocal delivery with fantastic melodies. Kroll's songs are influenced by early British Pop-Rock from across the Atlantic and back, Blues, Funk and Ska. The styles and genres may vary, but it's ultimately all about the SONG and where it takes you.
The singer-songwriter is currently in the studio working out a collection that will include Rhythm and Blues-based Rock, Funk, Ska, Americana and a piano torch song sweetened with a touch of cello. Kroll performs with THE DIRK KROLL BAND featuring two guitars, bass, drums,keyboards and horns with blended vocal harmonies.
"Composed of veterans of the Detroit music scene, DKB are a ragtag group of well-seasoned musicians at the top of their game. "Living Inside" offers an appealing mix of moody blues, surf rock guitar and the pop sensibilities of peak Elvis Costello. The album plays like your favorite record, the one that you found in the back of a vinyl shop and bought on a whim". Lianna Trimble,www.anarchohio.tumblr.com
