2012 Independent Music Award VoxPop Winner!!

Background vocalist on Martina McBride's 2013 & 2012 Christmas Tours

"Girl, you sound like a neat glass of single malt in a world of Michelob Ultra." Those were the words of Grammy award-winning songwriter Mike Reid ("I Can't Make You Love Me") when he heard Kira Small sing. This sultry, soulful siren combines the smoothness of Norah Jones, the rawness of Bonnie Raitt, the hip-ness of Adele and the flat-out-wailing of Aretha Franklin. Delivered with her huge heart, even huger voice and wicked sense of humor, Kira's spellbinding original songs and R&B classics seem to snuggle right into listeners' laps.
