The son of a minister of the Baptist Church, Kirk Fletcher began playing guitar at the tender age of eight, after looking closely at his older brother Walter who played in Sunday services at the church of his father.
Live also saw the likes of Albert Collins, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland and the Staple Singers, so Fletcher decided to pursue playing and interpreting the blues with all her heart and passion.
The final leap to the professional scene was the hand of the singer and harmonica player of the Hollywood Fats Band, Al Blake, who introduced him to the business and introduced him to such luminaries as Junior Watson and Kim Wilson.
In this “My Turn”, Kirk explores different ways and territories provided with blues sound as a starting point. The result can be more satisfying and effective, ten master songs he gives vent to his expressive language, passionate, multifaceted, stating clearly their extensive knowledge and skill, not just the guitar, but also the language of African American music which is a past master.
With conviction and elegance, so the result can not be other than a serious and high quality level.
