KiAnn from Liverpool, is an electronic-based, alternative pop singer-songwriter and rapper whose “epic” and “raw” material truly captivates audiences by challenging mental, physical and emotional struggles face-on, on an approachable level. In hopes of being one of the first openly “disabled” and gender-neutral artists, KiAnn wants to push the boundaries between the ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ musical stereotypes and to show the world that their own afflictions will not hold them back in striving to be the next big British artist.
Now working on their debut album ‘Identity’, KiAnn’s music is a mix and match diary of everything from “beautifully intertwined harmonies” to “moving” lyricism and conjoining different genres to create their own unique, “sonorous” sound, where no two songs are alike. KiAnn knew they could sing since they were young, but only truly discovered their voice at the age of 14, competing and placing in various small competitions over the years.
Originally a hairstylist by trade, KiAnn decided to but down their scissors after their diagnoses of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (2015) and fibromyalgia (2016), and picked up the pen to not only help cope with these, along side anxiety and depression, but to finally pursue the dream of being a singer – with hopes of becoming a face, and creating more awareness for those with chronic pain diseases and other chronic illnesses, as well as being a huge advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.
