Guitar player/singer Kurt Krezanski, more commonly referred to as “KK” on the local music scene has always had a deep admiration for Urban’s talents as a performer, player, singer andsongwriter. KK has also been told countless times that he and Keith Urban bear an uncanny physical resemblance, but they also coincidently have similar playing styles and stage mannerisms. However, the similarities don’t end there. Both Keith and KK had many of the same musical influences growing up and owned many of the same guitars. And, remarkably as children, they learned the same first song on guitar, “House of the Rising Sun”.
Although Keith Urban is known as an exceptional talent, KK is also a formidable talent is his own right, having played for Streetheart, Canadian Idol Jaydee Bixby, as well as several theater shows. He has also toured across Canada with various acts and had a residency in the U.S. backing up some of the biggest names in the Tribute Show circuit. His talent, combined with his experience and professionalism makes him the perfect artist to cover Keith Urban. “Golden Road” promises to provide fans with the ultimate Keith Urban experience.
