Biography

Hailed as an artist to watch both online and off by media outlets worldwide, Kieran Strange is a quirky, dynamic young artist blending pop sensibilities, edgy guitars and synthesized electronic sounds into her own personal brand of British pop-rock.

Raised on a variety of music genres above her grandmother's pub in a small fishing village in southern England, Kieran left her family behind at the tender age of seventeen to follow her heart and chase after her dream of making music. Since doing so, she has shared stages with the likes of Kinnie Starr, Hunter Valentine and more, lighting it up in front of audiences from 200 to 10,000 strong, all whilst singing songs about girl crushes, zombies and video games.

As she stands firmly as a voice for the different and discarded, Kieran's die-hard fans, who are disenchanted with the mainstream sense of mind, have coined themselves the Strangers and their number span all across the globe, from North America to Europe and Asia. They have already made their mark on the world by voting Miss Strange a final ballot nominee in the Shorty Awards (Twitter and social media) three years running. Kieran is fiery, verbal and passionate when it comes to her beliefs, and some of the causes she fights to help support are autism awareness, cancer research, eating disorder awareness and anti-bullying.

Hot on the heels of her debut EP Adamantine Heart, Kieran played over 200 shows, events and conventions across three continents in 2012/13, touring as far as to Japan and her home in England, as well as across Canada and the US. She has been commissioned to compose musical material for various geek and alternative lifestyle organizations across North America.

Kieran is currently working on her sophomore EP at the Hell's Half Acre Studio in California, with legendary producer Steve Kravac (Blink 182, Less Than Jake, MXPX, NOFX). The new EP will be released on Porterhouse Records (X, Kidneys, Little Misses), with a release date of Fall 2014. "I've spent a lot of time trying to fit into some perfect little cookie cutter of an artist," says Strange, "and I think the tracks I'm writing right now are about me coming out of that shell, letting down the walls, and just allowing myself to be naked without all of the armour and defenses. It's taken me a long time to come to terms with every aspect of who I am as a person, all the negatives as well as the positives, and I'm finally ready to just be me."


Lyrics

Adamantine Hearts

Written By: Kieran Strange, Michelle Edwards

Adamantine hearts, stay strong
Find the guts to sing along
Find the rage inside your soul
Let go, let go, whoa-oh

We were those kids with cruel design
Our sanctuary got lost in time
The puzzle piece that never fit, never fit
They tried to change us, make us fear
They said the rules were oh, so clear
And tried to change us for their own, for their own
With coloured hair and ripped up jeans
We'll show our numbers on the streets
We sold our souls together so sing together

CHORUS

Adamantine hearts, stay strong
Find the guts to sing along
Find the rage inside your soul
Let go, let go, whoa-oh

It's hard to care when you've gone numb
And when you're always on the run
Forever searching for your home, for your home
We may be strangers, may be friends
But we'll be standing at the end
And we'll keep each other safe, we'll stay safe
Stand apart from the machine
Getting up off of our knees
We sold our souls together so sing together

CHORUS

Adamantine hearts, stay strong
Find the guts to sing along
Find the rage inside your soul
Let go, let go, whoa-oh
Adamantine hearts, so bright
Always reaching for the light
Crash the party, it's our show
Let go, let go, whoa-oh

Whoa-oh. whoa-oh
Let go, let go
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Let go, let go

CHORUS

Adamantine hearts, stay strong
Find the guts to sing along
Find the rage inside your soul
Let go, let go, whoa-oh
Adamantine hearts, so bright
Always reaching for the light
Crash the party, it's our show
Let go, let go, whoa-oh
Let go, let go, whoa-oh

Hit A Nerve

Written By: Kieran Strange, Michelle Edwards

You knew it from the start

I was just a shot in the dark

I was never one for games

And there are some things that will never change

You know I like to speak my mind

I live a life of musical crime

I turned your pain into a song

So all my friends could sing along

(La la la la la la la)

It's nothing personal

CHORUS

Did I push you down, down, down too far?

Rip your heart out with an electric guitar?

It seems to happy every time

And I'm sorry if I used you for a rhyme

Oops, did I hit a nerve?

Oops, did I hit a nerve?

Oops, did I hit a nerve?

I could control, I couldn't control the urge

AM, FM, stereo

I'm with you everywhere you go

You can try to shut me down

But your song is already all over town

I'm like a work of art

My muse is your broken heart

Well thanks to you I've got my hook

And you're just another page in my songbook

It's nothing personal

CHORUS

Did I push you down, down, down too far?

Rip your heart out with an electric guitar?

It seems to happy every time

And I'm sorry if I used you for a rhyme

Did I make you hate, hate, hate your car?

When you turn on the radio, there you are

It seems to happen every time

And I'm cashing in and taking every dime

Oops, did I hit a nerve?

Oops, did I hit a nerve?

Oops, did I hit a nerve?

I could control, I couldn't control the urge

CHORUS

Did I push you down, down, down too far?

Rip your heart out with an electric guitar?

It seems to happy every time

And I'm sorry if I used you for a rhyme

Did I make you hate, hate, hate your car?

When you turn on the radio, there you are

It seems to happen every time

And I'm cashing in and taking every dime

Rock N Roleplay Baby

Written By: Kieran Strange, Michelle Edwards

Dressed up in leather with a gun at her hip

It may be plastic but it's making me trip

Oh no, she's waiting for me to go

She plays a Mage, she's got me under her spell

She plays a Fighter, with her eyes set to kill

I play, and I can't look away, yeah

She takes me to a whole new level

She's spinning, turning, flipping my world around

She breaks through all of my defenses

I'm ready, I'm waiting on the battleground

CHORUS

She's a rock and roleplay baby

And she throws a natural twenty in crazy

She's a rock and roleplay baby

And she's nothing near to normal and maybe

I'm in love, I'm in love

Oh oh, I'm in love, I'm in love

Oh oh, I'm in love, I'm in love

With a rock and roleplay baby

I like the way she brawls, she triggers desire

She's got me caught up in the heat of her fire

Oh please, she's always such a tease

She likes to hit me where she knows it'll hurt

Then loots my body while I'm down in the dirt

She's got, got me on my knees, yeah

She takes me to a whole new level

She's spinning, turning, flipping my world around

She breaks through all of my defenses

I want her, I want her to take me down

CHORUS

She's a rock and roleplay baby

And she throws a natural twenty in crazy

She's a rock and roleplay baby

And she's nothing near to normal and maybe

I'm in love, I'm in love

Oh oh, I'm in love, I'm in love

Oh oh, I'm in love, I'm in love

With a rock and roleplay baby

Ichi, ni, san, shi, are you ready?

She's my all-star avatar

Striking looks not two but four

2H warrior

Stacked up merits, not a flaw

Super-charged superstar

Carbonated concept art

Chaos is her calling card

She don't need no bodyguard

I'm on a whole new level

And I've got no defenses

I want her, I want her, I want her, I want...

CHORUS

She's a rock and roleplay baby

And she throws a natural twenty in crazy

She's a rock and roleplay baby

And she's nothing near to normal and maybe

I'm in love, I'm in love

Oh oh, I'm in love, I'm in love

Oh oh, I'm in love, I'm in love

With a rock and roleplay baby

I'm in love, I'm in love

With a rock and roleplay baby

I'm in love, I'm in love

With a rock and roleplay baby
