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."
