Little Kirk Biography

Kirk Davis recently gave his life fully to the Lord, when he became baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. With a new clearer direction for his life, Kirk will be reaching out to all those searching for Christ's guidance through his music. With a new Gospel/Reggae/Soul album to be released early 2008, Kirk Davis will be reaching higher heights both musically and spiritually.

With a voice that can only be described as a gift from God, Kirk Davis continually amazes with his seemingly effortless delivery of honey-laden notes. In an era when the ordinary is considered exceptional and the average deemed brilliant, one encounters great difficulty in summoning words to qualify the incredible vocal gifts of this remarkable artiste. Kirk Davis is a soulful almost R&B styled crooner with a style that is one of a kind, lending itself quite easily to the crossover without leaving the Reggae arena. There is no doubts that Reggae, Rhythm and Blues and Soul are all better for having Little Kirk, now Kirk Davis, represent himself through their musical structure.

Born and raised in Waterhouse, Kirk entered an area talent contest with brother Moses Davis, a.k.a. Beanie Man, in 1981. Each was adjudged the winner of his respective category and was subsequently invited by Patrick Roberts to join his Shocking Vibes label. They would become mainstays of this illustrious label.

Kirk has done a number of covers, a definite credit to the originals. His rendition of Michael Jackson's 'Man In The Mirror' has earned its place among classic musical remakes. He has logged a string of superlative performances, among these stand appearances in Japan, Europe, the United States, Canada, South America, Africa and the Caribbean Islands. Kirk's live performances invoke all the passion and emotion denoted in his recordings.

1997 found Kirk in quite a productive frame of mind. 'Ghetto Girl' on the Cloak & Dagger rhythm, 'Girls' on the popular Odour rhythm, 'Happy' a cover of Michael Jackson number done on the Buju Banton's Gargamel label and 'God A Di Man' for Tony Rebel's Flames label are all efforts from Kirk of 1997 vintage.

In the late 90's, Kirk teamed with producer Donovan Germain on 'Lalabella' and released several tracks with Shocking Vibes including 'Agony' on the Scarface rhythm and 'Everytime' on the Joker rhythm, even as he continued his worldwide touring.

1997 saw the release of album I'm Ready and an extensive tour of Japan to promote the album. The single 'I'm Ready' and 'Ease The Pain' became major hits. In 1999 he released the album 'Too Hot To Handle'. Kirk teamed up with Beenie Man again in 2000 to do the singles 'Dance 3000' and 'Broadway'. In 2005 he released the single 'One More Chance' which has been getting a lot of air play for Kirk. He also released the single 'Loverman' featuring Sean Paul, a number included on his 2007 album, One More Chance.

In this project, Kirk displayed a greater range of vocal skill on a variety of tracks. 'Conquering Lion' is a spiritually moving track; 'One More Time' with Beenie Man is an up tempo dancehall jam, while the track 'Natural (Stay Away)' features a powerful, yet haunting melody. The title track, 'One More Chance', is one of Kirk's biggest tunes and speaks to all those behind bars to keep their heads up and aspire to do better upon their release. Kirk's vocals are blended with instrumentals from the Firehouse Crew, Dean Fraser, Paul 'Titus' Green and Andrew 'Grumps' Thomas. Dancehall, lover's rock, R&B and gospel influenced tracks combine to deliver an album with an international flavour.

Some of Kirk's songs to listen out for are: 'Love Me For Me', 'That's The Way Love Goes', 'God A Di Man', 'If A Neva God' feat Beenie Man, 'Free Some Day' and 'Love It'. One should also lend an ear to 'What A Lala', a number he does with Beenie Man and a clear demonstration Kirk is still firmly anchored in his roots.

If one needs any indication of where Kirk is going, one needs only to listen to the riveting original ballad 'Natural (Stay Away)' to know that his destination is in the stars.
