KC Wilkerson


Originally from Kansas City, where he first began writing and performing in the 80's, KC has most recently been touring festivals around the country. As always, KC honors the bardic tradition but with a contemporary story, or message. Some of his studio songs were multi-track, multi-musician recordings, others exemplify his live solo show or were actually recorded live on stage.

The original old-school CD album, "Run Jump Fly", was recorded in Phoenix at Dollar Studios, and later mastered and released on the Chicago area Sammary Studio label in 2002. This song collection features subjects about awakening, the environment, human rights, race relations, over crowding, reincarnation, unconditional love, and spirituality. Cricket Song and Tattooed Lady, which were written while on the road, quickly gained popularity on the festival circuit. Two of the songs he recorded live were written, engineered and produced by blues artist Michael Charles from Australia (now living in Chicago-land) - MC Shuffle and Long Way To Go.

KC prefers his songs have positive thoughtful messages. Save Our Momma is about the environment; Good Bad Example is about protesting for change. Don't Get Drunk is country style song about not 'drinking and driving' from a partier's point of view, and, White Fire, is about healing our past relations with native Americans.

With a web presence spanning over 28 years KC's music has been heard in over 100 countries by thousands of visitors. He has performed at: night clubs, universities, local radio, festivals, coffee shops, taverns, restaurants, schools, private and block parties. Cities include: Boston, Chicago, Fort Myers, Hollywood, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Louisville, Milwaukee, New York and Phoenix; with small town performances in: AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, IN, IA, KS, KY, MA, MI, MS, MO, NV, NH, NY, OH, PA, UT, VT, WA and WI.
