MP3 Kirk Gramcko - Bigger Than Me
Phone off... lights out... lie on the floor... eyes closed... volume up. This is no tired cliché-train chugging along the same old worn-out track, but a sonic journey twisting through an ever-changing landscape of sounds, thoughts, and atmospheres.

Songwriter Kirk Gramcko, having traveled all over the musical landscape for years, has returned home, bringing with him a gig bag filled with 10 original songs for his new CD “Bigger Than Me.”
Energetic and engaging, this CD strikes an ideal balance over a range of styles and moods, from high energy rock & roll (“Gimme More”), to melodic lyrical laments (“What’s the Matter With Me” and “Tears Won’t Come”), to selections that fall into those hard-to-pin-down genres.
Just listen to the title track, “Bigger Than Me,” with its surreal sonic reverberations, mystical lyrics, and panoramic images. Contrast that with “Nineteen” which combines a frenzied, driving pulse with a haunting, achy feel. The collection on this CD is no tired cliché-train chugging along the same old worn-out track, but rather a sonic journey twisting through an ever-changing landscape of sounds, thoughts, and atmospheres.
Speaking about the art of songwriting, Kirk commented, “It starts with a guitar on my knee...for me, the music always comes first. As it evolves, a phrase or rhythmic element will start to grab and take hold. Then, as I play with it, the music begins to evoke images and feelings which lead me to where the lyrics are hiding.”
