Band & Musician News - Young award-winning rising star releases first single

Young award-winning rising star releases first single

11 June 2021 - 0 Comments

Keira's love of songwriting and performing, along with her passion for writing and music are evident in her first release, Lying on the Grass. The song was written, composed and produced last year, at age 13 and is the first of 3 singles to be released this year; a huge accomplishment for such a young musician. Her silky voice and thought-provoking lyrics allow you to lose yourself in the song, something that has contributed to Keira recently winning the Dunedin Fringe Festival 2021 People’s Choice Award for Best Public Performance.

In January 2020, Keira wrote her debut single, Lying on the Grass. Keira: “It’s about wanting to get away from the pressures and expectations that society pushes onto everyone - taking yourself to your happy place.” With its captivating vocals and spacey vibes, Lying on the Grass whisks you along and perfectly captures the wistful feeling of wanting to get away.

Keira: “The song idea came to me while I was lying on the grass, chilling with my cats. Looking up at the sky, I felt at peace and in awe of the beautiful world around us. I thought about the impact we have had on Earth, it’s dwellers, and on each other. I wondered what life would be like if we could be whisked away from all the negativity, the constant judging, comparing and endless opinions. Even though we can’t physically be projected into the atmosphere, it’s important to have a place you can take your mind to, that the opinions can’t reach.”
