Biography:
Kieran Strange is a pop-rock artist, originally from southern England, who travelled to Canada to record her first demo and EP. Her passion to bring a message of self-acceptance through music is apparent in how she communicates with her fans, always encouraging them to share their talents with the world via YouTube just like she has done. "So many people tore me down and said I'd never make anything of myself, never succeed in music, and I'll be damned if I'm ever gonna let anyone else feel that way," she says, of the way she supports her fans and other musicians like her.

The pink-haired rocker, who was bullied throughout high school, has found a way to accept her quirks and channel them into her music rather than being ashamed and embarrassed of them. Through her vow to stay strange, she is determined to just live life being herself, and encourage others to do the same rather than surrender to the pressure of having to be like everyone else. "I was bullied through high school," she says, with humour rather than resentment. "It's the traditional sad, bullied-kid story. I spent my break times picking chewing gum out of my hair. But that's behind me now, and I'm proud of who I am. Just as everyone else should be proud of who they are too, weirdness and all."

My friends say my music is like My Chemical Romance and The Used got it on with Paramore, and no one really knows whose baby it is," is the way she describes her music. "A cotton-candy car-crash."

Strange has released three demo singles and on May 6th will release her debut EP, Hot Damn Mess, which was recorded, mixed, and mastered by herself and her band in Logic. She also demonstrated her fan's growth over the social media sites ranking in the Top 25 Artists on Twitter, beating out artists such as Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift. She filmed and shot a music video for the Christmas season about a zombie apocalypse on a $50 budget. She has played shows both locally and internationally, and is currently booking dates in Canada, the US and the UK.
