Busting into the music scene is as hard as it gets, and no one has tried harder than Starbuck native Matt Kirkwold.

After graduating from the Minnewaska High School in 1992, Kirkwold headed straight to Minneapolis for music studies and only two years later began working as a music producer.


He's enjoyed some regional success as a producer, most notably for his work with Quietdrive and its first LP release.
