The Kirbys are an Americana Indie-Folk Rock Band formed by Kate and Andrew Kirby and based in Texas. The Kirbys combine tight harmonies, strong melodies, and driving beats with haunting guitars, from 12-string to slide, to create their unique sound. The Kirbys tour and perform as a duo, trio or full band in acoustic or electric settings with well over 3-hours of original material and select covers in their own style. The Kirbys are: Andrew Kirby, Kate Kirby, and Rantz Gibson, featuring Gary Long, Marcia Keys or Chase Murdock on drums.
Andrew Kirby is an American composer and musician whose work has appeared in television and film for more than 20 years. Andrew has performed along side many well-known popular musicians in California and his home state of Texas. Honing his craft from an early age, Andrew plays many instruments, but his primary instruments are piano, guitar, keyboards and vocals. Andrew's 12-string guitar is the backbone to many of The Kirbys songs.
Kate Kirby is a singer/songwriter and educated musician who started her career in music playing French Horn in bands and orchestras throughout Texas and New Mexico. Kate is a vocalist who also plays bass, acoustic guitar, and percussion. Her primary interest in music is songwriting and performing those original songs to audiences all over the world. Although you'd never know it from the comfort she shows on stage and interacting with the audience, she is a reluctant 'front man' and would rather the music speak for itself.
Rantz Gibson is a multi-instrumentalist focussed on electric guitar and slide guitar with a great variety of styles in his repertoire. Rantz has played with many top original artists in North East Texas and beyond. Rantz's leads, both slide and traditional, add a totally unique flavor to The Kirbys Music. His counter melodies and haunting layers of sound behind the vocals create tension and release that makes for an especially nice listening experience.
Gary is more that a drummer. He is a producer, arranger and audio engineer originally from Fort Collins, Colorado who toured extensively playing drums with various bands including the Nice Brothers. After spending time at The Record Plant Mobile in Los Angeles, Gary moved to Dallas and founded Nomad Recording Studios. Gary has worked with Andrew and Kate Kirby for many years and performed, on occasion, in the Dallas Area. Gary brings a wealth of experience to The Kirbys and provides both an incredible groove coupled with exquisite technique and understanding of exactly what fits musically within each song performance.
Marcia Keys is a multi-instrumentalist that plays with many artists in and around East Texas. Marcia's drumming has been compared to John Bonham and Dave Grohl and her sensitivity to melody, contrast and form is apparent in her performances. Her understanding of time and rhythm as it relates to melody creates drama and interest with each song. Marcia is also an incredible vocalist and her backing vocals create another depth of layer to The Kirbys sound.
Chase Murdock has been playing drums and percussion with some of the best talent East Texas has to offer. His timing and approach to drums is what makes him in such high demand. Chase creates a beautiful bed for The Kirbys music to groove into. His understanding of melody and relation of percussion/ beat to song make for an incredible combination of drive and finesse. His spirit is evident in his music.
