John Carroll Kirby
If you’ve listened to a widely acclaimed album in the last few years, chances are you’ve heard John Carroll Kirby’s work. The Los Angeles-based pianist, producer and composer has collaborated with artists including Solange, Frank Ocean, Bat for Lashes, Connan Mockasin, Sébastien Tellier, Harry Styles, and many more.
Growing up in California, Kirby didn’t have an especially musical background. Encouraged by his mom to take piano lessons, which led to a lengthy immersion in jazz, he went on to study at USC with a focus on big band composing. Soon, he began touring with other artists and making a name for himself as a collaborator.
Kirby’s 2020 debut for Stones Throw Records is the soulful, spiritual and evocative album My Garden, which blends exotica, New Age and jazz into a unique new sound. In the same year, Kirby released Conflict, a piano album shared in response to the ongoing global pandemic.
