Kurt Bielema

Kurt BielemaKurt Bielema has been playing guitar and writing songs for thirty years. It wasn’t until a few years ago that he found his voice, and officially became a singer/songwriter. He’s played in metal bands, jam bands, prog-rock power trios, and toured Japan, New York, and all parts of Illinois in several original pop rock groups. What most influences his songwriting these days are the classic folk artists Donovan, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Drake, and contemporaries Andrew Bird, Iron & Wine, Gillian Welch, and Jose Gonzalez.
