LA-based singer-songwriter, bassist, and album producer Kimon Kirk has worked with a wide range of artists including Gaby Moreno, Aimee Mann, Alejandro Escovedo, Grant-Lee Phillips, Session Americana, Sarah Borges, Amy Correia, Lori McKenna, and other musicians of diverse musical stripes.  A native of Boston, he relocated to Los Angeles in 2018 and has since been a mainstay of Latin-Grammy winner Gaby Moreno's touring band, as well as performing with Amy Correia (and producing her forthcoming EP) and playing bass with former X-guitarist Tony Gilkyson.  His jazz trio, the Blue Grifters, includes guitarist Michael Eisenstein (Letters to Cleo) and drummer Sebastian Aymanns (Gaby Moreno, Aimee Mann).


In 2020 Kimon will release his first full-length solo album since 2011, tentatively called Altitude.  It features his longtime Boston band, the Meds, and was recorded with David Minehan (of the Replacements and the Neighborhoods) at Woolly Mammoth Sound in Boston.  


Kimon has been an invited guest lecturer on songwriting and music performance at Berklee College of Music, Georgetown University, Boston College, Boston University, and Suffolk University.
