Bio

Many people throughout their lifetime never discover where their true talents lie. Kira has known she would sing since the age of five. Her natural talent pulled her into the Fine Arts at an early age and has yet to let her go. Her energetic stage presence was developed during her theatrical days in university, while she worked towards her BSW.

Her compassionate character and inexhaustible energy maneuvered her into a role of a community support worker, where she spent nearly a decade dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities.

It was not long before Kira found an opportunity to fill her remaining free time with the thing she loved most: music.

The first real successes of her musical career were in a project called Soul Patch Presents, a seven-piece Latin-funk band, which Kira rounded out beautifully with her soulful, emotionally-driven lyrics as lead vocalist. She quickly became an integral member of the group and complemented the groovy rhythms with powerful vocals and a captivating stage presence. She played a vital part in guiding the band on a successful five-year tour campaign, in which time they played more than three hundred shows, with stops that included the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival in 2001 and Kelowna Blues Fest in 2003. "I perform to entertain." Throughout her career with Soul Patch the shows were interrupted only once, so Kira could be cast into a Western Canada Theatre Company musical, "Little Shop of Horrors".

There was still a great desire to compile a collection of her original material so Kira entered a local Battle of The Bands, and stole the show. The win jump-started the process and soon after Kira was in the studio recording her first original tracks.

"I write music that is usually situation or moment inspired. I try to capture a memory or feeling and create a sort of musical photo album."

Kira is busy in the studio right now, working on completing her first solo album. It should be ready for summer 2004.
