Kira Hooks

Hailing from Los Angeles, Kira Hooks is a driven, passionate and charismatic singer songwriter who set out to approach her music with a unique feel. Her brand new album, 'Elephant Heart', features a collection of 12 songs that fall somewhere in between the warmth of soul, the melodies of pop and the explosive grooves of Latin/Funk music.
     The album is colorful and kaleidoscopic, featuring the performances of an ensemble of proficient and expressive musicians whose sound is a great complement to Kira's vibrant and heartfelt vocals.
     This self-proclaimed “old soul” managed to create a sound that defies genre limitations, borrowing inspiration from many different eras and performers the likes of Billie Holiday, The Andrew Sisters, Ray Charles and Cole Porter, just to name a few. Kira is an eclectic performer and talented songwriter who refuses to get stuck in a box, while managing to keep her music accessible and easy to relate to.
