Meet Kiera Loveless
I am an independent Pop/Soul songwriter and artist based in Nashville, TN. I’ve been singing since before I can remember, as my family has always been very musical and I grew up listening to my mom singing in weddings. I grew up in a small town about an hour west of St. Louis, Missouri called Troy. I was very active in anything I could that could get me on a stage and so, of course, I decided to move to Music City upon graduating high school. I attended Belmont University and graduated with a degree in Commercial Music: Vocal Performance in 2018. Since graduation, I’ve released 4 singles, and have connected with tens of thousands of listeners on Spotify and other platforms. My first single “Love in Real Life” charted in Canada! I perform in Nashville as much as I can, and love to write and collaborate with other creatives. I’ve never really had much, my family always struggled growing up, so although finances have been a huge obstacle for me in my musical career, I’ve come to find that it isn’t as important as many make it out to be. I am happy as a clam whether 1 person deeply connects with my song or 1 million (but, I mean…obviously the more the merrier 🙂 My biggest mission is to create music that can remind people that they are not alone: whether that be that they’re not alone in being a hot mess, or not alone in their struggles in this life. I want people to feel heard.
Absolutely not a smooth ride, but I’m not complaining at all. Coming from struggle is what has built me and given me the strength to keep moving forward. Like I said, finances have always been a huge struggle for me. Despite some small scholarships, I am paying for my entire college education through student loans. That is a pretty huge debt to bear, but it’s just a part of my life now, and I don’t let it weigh me down. Sure, it keeps me from making music as often as I’d like, but there’s nothing I can do to change that. My family has been through some difficult times the past five years, losing loved ones and going through sickness. But it has only brought us closer. I wouldn’t take back a moment of struggle.
I am an artist/songwriter in Nashville, TN! I not only write and perform my own original music, but I’m also a professional vocalist and performer as well. Any way that I can lend my voice, I am so passionate about music and absolutely love collaborating with other musicians in Music City. I am most proud of my own original work, because I see every how meaningful every detail is: from the production to the album artwork – my original music is all so intentional and comes straight from my heart. I think the thing that sets me apart from others is how straight forward I am. I’m here to connect and be real with whoever I come across. I’m not trying to be the coolest kid on the block, and that will never be me. I just hope I can create something meaningful.
Success to me is doing something that makes you feel fulfilled and turning it into a living. Music has never been about the fame and fortune for me. The most important thing to me is to be able to create music that can connect with people, like I mentioned above. I think it’s also important to not view success as a mountaintop : I’m never going to finally “make it” and I don’t think it’s healthy to view your career that way. I’m going to be constantly evolving and reaching for goals, and they won’t always be correlated to how many streams I’m getting. Of course I hope to reach as many people as possible, but I think it’s important to recognize success in smaller forms as well. This is something I’ve always had a difficult time with, but recognizing my smaller successes has helped me feel motivated to keep reaching for the next thing, while still celebrating my hard work in my career thus far.
