It was in the city of Cleveland, Ohio that Tim Kirker got his start as a musician. Among other things, Kirker shared the stage with lead Nine Inch Nails member Trent Reznor. Reznor and Kirker were part of the same group called Slam Bamboo who had a Top 40 hit song in the Cleveland area called “House on Fire”. Reznor would later go on with NIN and Kirker would go in his own direction, forming other bands.
Years later, the now New York-based Tim Kirker has returned to music after taking some time off and has since released two solo albums after returning to music with the help of several friends from his musical past. After releasing his first solo album of Like Distant Sounds in 2003, Kirker would take some time off. Having returned last year with Worms for Early Birds, his newest album in over a decade, Kirker returned once again in 2015 with yet another new release. This new album is entitled Shallow End of a Deep River.
