11 Dumb Answers To Dumb Questions With Kirin J Callinan

Kirin J Callinan is an enigma, wrapped in a mystery, doused in glitter and baked at 200 degrees for twenty minutes (turning over once) and so we should’ve known that our Q&A with the singer song-writer would turn out like this.

To celebrate the release of his new single The Teacher, and the upcoming tour to support it, we thought we’d get some life lessons out of the dude. Because, “Teacher”, geddit? Teaching. Lessons… look it all made sense to me anyway.

This is what we got. Check out the tour dates below this erudite and revealing Q&A session.
