Bio

Known for her dynamic live performances and genre-defying writing style, Kira Puru is an ever-rising star, widely respected as one of Australia’s biggest voices. Her stage presence is demanding and her execution, confident.

A seasoned performer, she does not rely on vocal talent alone, seizing opportunity for expression across all platforms as a multi-disciplinary artist, hands-on at every level. Between stage and studio, she is a photographer, visual artist and DJ.

Counting Paul Kelly, Illy, Paul Mac and Urthboy among her collaborators, Puru has made versatility her virtue, cutting her teeth with Australia’s finest on the national stage, earning a throng of dedicated fans and industry accolades. Her collaborations and exploits as a feature vocalist plot her unstoppable musical evolution and stand testament to her uniqueness and artistic flexibility.

Now the celebrated artist returns to her solo project with the highly anticipated release of 'Tension'. If it weren’t pop, it might be goth disco.

yessssss kira! you've always had the voice and in paring it back just a touch on this one every other element shines through. trading in that bounce and pop groove and withholding your main weapon is a gutsy move that's paid off.
