Fronting Nashville-based trance/dance group People In A Box (www.peopleinabox.com) is just one hat that former record label exec Kurt Kirton wears. Kirton cut his teeth on the smooth grooves of the 70s and the synthesizer-inspired 80s. The early 90s produced a genre that had already taken flight in Europe, and thus Kirton's love of dance/club music was born. In 1995, as a new Nashville transplant from Mississippi, he became a veteran staff member at area nightclub Rocketown. This gave opportunity to rub elbows with many faith-based electronic acts Kirton had looked up to for years. Thereafter, Kurt's work with Word and Pamplin Records and (as Advertising Trafficker for) Gaylord Digital and Morpheus satiated his desire to experience and contribute to the business side of the industry. During that time, fandom turned to an interest in making the music, and he established his band--utilizing his music business knowledge to promote it. He now sits as producer, publicist, and sometimes songwriter and programmer for People In A Box, as well as singing alongside fellow vocalist Kathleen Abel. The band's latest singles have appeared on major record pool disks and charted alongside such genre veterans as New Order, Nine Inch Nails, Kylie Minogue, and Chemical Brothers.
