This month Kimon Kirk and the virtuoso Meds debut as a fully-formed rock 'n' roll
band. These monster players own virtually any genre of song-oriented popular
music: crafty pop, heartfelt country, late-night jazz, edgy rockabilly, swinging blues,
soul-inflected balladry nothing is off limits. Kirk, founding member of Session
Americana and sideman to Aimee Mann, Sarah Borges, Melissa Ferrick, and Will Dailey, is joined by keyboardist Jamie Edwards (Aimee Mann), guitarist Lyle Brewer (Dennis Brennan), bassist Jim Haggerty (The White Owls), and drummer John Sands (Lisa Marie Presley). Kirk and the Meds celebrate the release of a new single, "Baby Who Knows," written and recorded with Aimee Mann. Band members have long worked as touring and studio session players with a variety of artists and performed as a unit with Aimee Mann, Grant-Lee Phillips, Ramona Silver, and Lori McKenna. Each week, the Meds will perform with a special musical guest, each a peerless songwriter, performer, and collaborator.
Week Two: Kimon Kirk and the Meds with a Secret Special Guest Winner of the 2013 Latin Grammy for Best New Artist, this Guatemala-born, Los Angeles-based performer is a singer and songwriter of breathtaking talent. In English and Spanish, her music floats across genres, melding modern standards, Beatles-y pop, and soulful bossa nova, all at a hoedown with Sister Rosetta Tharpe. She has performed worldwide with actor and pianist Hugh Laurie and his Copper Bottom Band, with legendary composer Van Dyke Parks, and in duet with Guatemalan superstar Ricardo Arjona on his mega-hit "Fuiste Tu." She is co-writer of the theme song to NBC's hit show Parks and Recreation and is currently touring with the acclaimed Punch Brothers.
