After skyrocketing onto the European jazz scene as a sideman with some of the finest musicians hailing from Scandinavia today, as well as working with prominent international names such as Diane Schuur, Eric Reed and Stephen Riley, drummer Snorre Kirk has emerged as a fully-fledged artist and composer in his own right.

With his hugely successful 2012 debut album ‘Blues Modernism’, Snorre Kirk was honoured with the prestigious JazzSpecial Award in Denmark for "Album of the Year" and received two nominations in the Danish Grammy Awards, which provided Kirk with the opportunity to showcase his remarkable qualities as a composer and as a bandleader. His subsequent outings ‘Europa’ from 2015 and ‘Drummer & Composer’ from 2017 were followed by performances at prominent international festivals such as the North Sea Jazz Festival, Pori Jazz Festival, and the Kansas City Art of Swing Festival, and further cemented his position as one of Europe’s fastest rising jazz stars.

With the release of ‘BEAT’, presenting an eclectic mix of exotic rhythms and vivid, colourful compositions, Snorre Kirk has realized his most personal and ambitious project to date.
