Kieran Strange is an electro pop-rock artist, originally from southern England, who has 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 frands 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 when asked the traditional question of "so what do you sound like?".

Kieran recently released her first single, Good Intentions, which was recorded, mixed, and mastered by herself and her band in Garageband. She also recently filmed and shot a music video for the Christmas season about a zombie apocalypse on a $50 budget. She has played in both Canada and the United States, and has tour dates booked internationally for 2012. Her debut EP, "Hot Damn Mess", is now available via iTunes, and she is currently in the studio working on her second release which she has rumoured to be "an awesome multimedia concept album".
