A self-taught musician, Seattle’s Kirt Debique will release his debut album, Things Left Unsaid, via Brick Lane Records on October 23, 2015. Conceived as a series of letters to parents, partners, siblings, and strangers, its eight songs delve into themes of love, family, and loss. Although a divorce and some hard realizations incited the compositional process, the specifics of Things Left Unsaid took shape later on, after Debique could view his subject matter with perspective.
“I only got serious about making music about six or seven years ago,” he recalls. “It was one of the few healthy ways of working through where I was at during a difficult time.” The act of making music fortified him, but so did the friendships that grew up around it. “I’ve been around a loving community of reflective artists. People who spend a lot of time digging deep, and who hope to communicate the understandings they’ve found in a way that brings everybody forward together.”
Today, Debique’s track “Celestial Musings” from the forthcoming album premieres at VerbicideMagazine.com. Below you can stream the track and see upcoming tour dates.
