Jon Kirby

Jon Kirby is a record collector, author, and A&R at the esteemed reissue label, The Numero Group. As a disc jockey, he has toured extensively through North America, Europe, and Asia, playing an uplifting blend of eccentric soul, obscure funk, and abstract disco. A North Carolina native, his all-vinyl sets are sure to feature numerous curios from his beloved home state.

From 2007 to 2010, Kirby served as Associate Editor for the Brooklyn-based music journal Wax Poetics, before joining the Numero Group in 2011. He was nominated for a Grammy in 2014 in relation to the expansive album notes for Purple Snow: Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound, and again in 2017 for his work compiling Bobo Yéyé: Belle Époque in Upper Volta. Along with revered collector Dante Carfagna, he hosts the cult music podcast Dogpatch, complementing outsider music with insider humor.
