Kirk Talley

Biography

Kirk Talley is a Southern Gospel tenor singer who began his career as a member of the Hoppers in the 1970s. His big break came in 1979 when he was hired to fill the tenor position for the Cathedral Quartet. He remained with the Cathedrals until 1983. The following year, he joined his brother and sister-in-law, Roger Talley and Debra Talley to form the Talleys. This group lasted until 1993, at which time Kirk embarked on a solo career. He also performed selected dates with Ivan Parker and Anthony Burger as The Trio.

Kirk Talley received a great deal of negative attention nationally when he became the victim of an extortion scheme by a man who threatened to reveal the nature of Talley's sexual orientation. The man was arrested and convicted but Kirk was forced to take some time off from performing while he received counseling. He was eventually able to return to touring and continues his solo ministry today.

Kirk is also an accomplished songwriter and owns his own publishing company, Kirk Talley Music.
