We had the good fortune of connecting with Estella Kirk and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Estella, what do you attribute your success to?
Hard work and leaning on God to know the right direction has been the most important factor behind my success. Sometimes, when I go my own direction things don’t work out but when I ask God for guidance he always shows me the correct path.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a Christian Pop musician, which is not a super traditional genre. The songs sound like a typical pop song with amazing sounds and production, but with more uplifting and meaningful messages. I wanted to lead people to God and that’s where the idea of using pop production and Christian messaging came into play. I am very excited that I will be releasing one song a month until September, which is when my full EP comes out! I released my debut single in May, “Shelter in the Storm” which you can find on all streaming platforms.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
If my best friend and I went on vacation to Dallas we would go back to the restaurant Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck, inside the Reunion Tower. The views are just amazing and we could have dinner there and hang out. We would probably also want to walk around and do some shopping at The Legacy and spend some time outdoors in the downtown area.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give a special thanks to Kira Fontana, my vocal coach. When I met her in 2018 I was looking for vocal lessons to become a pop musician. We discussed the current state of the pop music industry and decided a more Christian focused career would be more powerful and would allow me to spread Gods word. When you are young you want to be a pop star and that is typically the type of music you listen to. Kira knew I was a Christian and talked to me about using my God-given gifts to glorify him and that is when I decided to switch directions with my music from Pop to Pop/Christian. By switching to Pop/Christian music I’m able to keep the production sounding pop but have positive lyrics that point people to God.
