Kirin J Callinan

Kirin J Callinan is an Australian musician known for his lead guitar work in bands such as Mercy Arms, The Night Game, and Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders, as well as his solo career.
Since Mercy Arms broke up in 2009, Callinan has released three solo albums: Embracism, Bravado, and Return to Center. Referred to as the enfant terrible of Australia's underground rock music scene, Callinan is known for his flamboyant public persona, confrontational live shows, and diverse musical output in which, according to Spin, "the distinctions between talent, irony, and genuine bad taste bleed together until they’re indistinguishable." Callinan said that his primary motivation as a musician is to "excite and confuse, ... But you can't do that for any length of time without having sincerity."
Callinan has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including Jimmy Barnes, James Chance, Alex Cameron, Connan Mockasin, and brothers Neil and Tim Finn. Barnes and Cameron feature in Callinan's 2017 single "Big Enough". Barnes' distinctive screaming cameo became a famous internet meme.
In 2017, Callinan was cast by Jane Campion in the second season of Top of the Lake.
