The roots of Timber Timbre
dig in to a somewhat familiar sounding back-story. Similar to the circumstances that spawned Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago
, Kirk's recording career began somewhere in the Canadian wilderness. "A few years ago I experienced something that might be described as a breakdown," explains Kirk, "retreating to a cabin in the woods to help work for some family friends. I ended up spending my nights recording a collection of songs called Timber Timbre, Cedar Shakes."
