happy birfdy mr kilbey

A very happy birthday to Mr Steven Kilbey, creator of one of my favourite bands and main protagonist to my musical education.

The Church create musical soundscapes – layers of floaty, jangly guitars, haunting bass and lyrics that hit home. Kilbeys voice is wonderfully smooth, and evokes images of dimly lit basement gigs where the crowd are wrapped in a velvet blanket of aural ecstacy.

Kilbey’s also involved with collaborations with lots and lots and lots of musos, and has a vast array of solo work too.

But Kilbey doesn’t just create a fantabulous muscal experience! No! He’s also an artist, a poet and a dreamer. The world could use more people like him.

happy birthday mr kilbey. I’m very glad you do what you do.
