WUMB Presents Kimon Kirk
Kimon Kirk has released two albums of original material and, in 2017, a new single, Baby Who Knows, written with and featuring Aimee Mann. In addition to writing and performing his own music he has had a long career as bassist to the likes of Gaby Moreno, Session Americana, Aimee Mann, Grant-Lee Phillips, Sarah Borges, and Will Dailey. He has also produced recent albums for Boston-area luminaries Dennis Brennan, Lyle Brewer, and David Champagne. To quote drummer and booking agent Billy Beard, Kimon's band the Meds "provide finesse and muscle in the proper proportions" and his "gorgeous vocals, fantastic musicianship, and terrific songwriting will pull you into a world of smart pop music that will stay with you hours after the show is over." The Meds include guitarist Lyle Brewer, keyboardist Jamie Edwards, bassist Jim Haggerty, and drummer John Sands.
