Kieran Strange – A Stranger No More
British born, Vancouver based electro pop rock artist Kieran Strange introduces her A Stranger in Alberta tour beginning June 15th, with guitar accompaniment by Fighting For Ithaca’s Adam Mountstevens (604 Records) at all shows.
Having showcased in Toronto at The Orbit Room last March, Cashbox Canada also had Kieran as a special guest performer at the Canadian Music Week booth during that annual music festival. The pink haired rock singer, who was raised above her grandmother’s pub in West Sussex, England, took the audience by surprise, performing three original songs from her debut EP Adamantine Heart at both locations. The dynamic singer has clever lyrics, projected with an energy comparable to that of Joan Jett in her early days. “Rock and Roll Play Baby” written by Strange, has a definite rawness similar to early nineties British punk.
No stranger to sharing a stage, Kieran will do so with Whitecourt-based country artist Erin Haley (June 15th), and Calgary based artists including jazz chanteuse Jenvavive (June 16th ) and Seventh Rain (June 16th). Strange selected each act based on fan engagement, song writing and musical talent as well as relationships she’s built in the last year of headlining shows in Vancouver, B.C.
A stranger no more to Alberta when these dates are complete, Strange will journey back to the UK for the remainder of June to share her songs and stories and garner more fans.
This talented, sassy singer/songwriter is becoming a more familiar figure in Canada, and could catch her big break at any gig now. Which is why, should Kieran show up in your town, you need to get out and get you some Strange.
