Carl Wirkkala has been writing and sharing stories his whole life. In 1995 Carl began learning the guitar and writing music. His whole life Carl has enjoyed country music and when you listen you might hear the inspiration of Don Williams, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Buzz Martin.
Carl has a great passion for his family and his music. He is already a celebrity in Castle Rock and Kelso-Longview, Washington and has traveled to Nashville, Tennessee several times to record his music.
His soulful voice is only accented by his musical poetry:
Velvet rain is falling
Softer words are spoken
Lonesome whistle callin’
Silence to be broken
…excerpt from If the Road Don’t Come Up Missin’ from Carl Wirkkala’s latest album, 1974.
