“Dirk Kroll crafts storied songs that take you somewhere. THE DIRK KROLL BAND delivers them. ”
DIRK KROLL moved from Southern California to Metro-Detroit at a young age with both a Sonny Rollins and an Eddie Cochran album in tow. In no time, he fell 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, Ska and elements of Americana. Holding several Detroit Music Award nominations over the years, Kroll continues to compose songs regularly and fronts THE DIRK KROLL BAND. He is joined by Rodney Walker on guitar, Paul Price on drums, Gardell Floyd on bass, Jim Amann on keyboards, Marci Feldman, back up vocals and Robert Reeves on horns. Together, they present storied songs that take you somewhere with talent that transcends a specific genre.
In late 2018, the singer-songwriter released a 10 song collection that includes Rhythm and Blues-based Rock, Funk, Ska, Americana and a piano torch song sweetened with a touch of cello.
"Composed of veterans of the Detroit music scene, DKB are a ragtag group of well-seasoneDd 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, Total Traffic Network
