      Soulful vocals with an easy, relaxed style. I enjoyed the stories of how she developed her repertoire over the years with those gigs in Austin and other places. (And the kitties... who could forget the kitties?!)

Whiskey-Tinged soul songstress Kira Small has been touring as a solo artist for over a decade. A Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter Showcase Winner and Independent Music Award Winner, she has continued to flex her songwriting muscles, with four studio albums and one live album to her credit, all while concurrently maintaining her not-so-secret identity as an A-list Nashville session singer and live background vocalist.


Her 2010 album, Raise My Voice, was a pivotal album in her solo career. It’s a stirringly soulful release featuring Motown and Muscle Shoals studio veterans and empowering messages, exemplified by the standout track “I Will Raise My Voice.” Kira has continued this musical and personal journey on her latest project. 3 AM is one of those albums where an artist, in making sense of a time of personal upheaval, almost accidentally crafts a career masterpiece. Kira’s breakup was leveling, and only in processing its painful complexity and rebuilding her life could she craft such an emotionally visceral and honest album. “This record is a new version of me raising my voice, and getting beyond fear,” Kira says.


Kira garnered an engaged fan base through her earthy and elegant solo albums and her supporting roles alongside some of modern music’s most esteemed names. Her signature artistry encompasses gospel, soul, country, R&B, and jazz. It’s a blue-eyed soul aesthetic that melds down home emotionality with touches of harmonic sophistication. Kira has the chops to sing jazz and soul and has lived enough life to sing the blues. This rare blend has made her an in-demand session singer with such icons as Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Peter Frampton, Wynonna Judd, Ray Price, Randy Travis, Kenny Rogers, Ronnie Milsap, Deep Purple, Ray Stevens, Jimmy Hall, Jamey Johnson and more. In addition, Kira has been featured as a live performer with Martina McBride, Radney Foster and Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman), had a recurring role as a backup singer on ABC’s Nashville, and spent two years as a member of Berklee College of Music’s Voice Department Faculty.
