Dirk has lived in Athens,
he was three years old. His family sang together often, so his appreciation for
music developed early. Dirk acquired his first guitar when he was
eleven and began performing for school functions as well as with local dance
bands. The soul sounds of Motown and Philadelphia held an attraction
for him that is still evident today in his style.
While attending the University
of Georgia in Athens GA,
he became friends with Tony Brown & formed the partnership of
"Dirk & Tony." After years of success as a duo, Brown
headed to Nashville in search of country music stardom & is now knows
as T. Graham Brown. Dirk continued to grow and develop as a solo
artist and has been proclaimed by Classic Live! music publication as
"The all time King of the Athens, GA entertainment scene."
Dirk has been busy writing and gathering material for his own artist
recording projects. His latest release, on the Southern Tracks
recording label, reflects the R&B, beach music, and country music
influences and his appropriately entitled "Beach Country."
Three popular releases from the CD ("Untie Me", "Be Young
Be Foolish and Be Happy," and "Ms. Grace") have been
successful on both country and R&B radio stations throughout the US
and have achieved top 10 status in some markets.
