Bio

Kiera Jas is a singer-songwriter based in a small town near Margaret River, WA. The release of her debut single "Shadows" embarked her music career as a solo artist in early December 2018. Not long after her release "Shadows" was nominated in the Outstanding Regional Category for WAM Song of The Year 2019.

The last year has seen Kiera jump on the stage alongside a number of popular Aussie bands including Spacey Jane, Wooly Mammoth and Caravana Sun. She was also a choir member in Mama Kin Spender "The Chorale Sea" and performed at a variety of festivals including Nannup Music Festival and Blues at Bridgetown. Kiera slotted on the line up for Blues at Bridgetown as a soloist in November 2019 which marked her first festival lineup.

Kiera brings a bright energy to the stage accompanied with her ukulele and iconic surfer green telecaster. Her tone and ambience is similar to that of Stella Donelly and Julia Jacklin yet her music seems to tie into its own genre.

Jas is in her element performing for people with her shimmering vocals and witty banter. Her captivating stories get you giggling and her "down south" upbringing shines through her unique lyricism with which she weaves angelic and contrasting melodies.
