Arriving in Toronto’s North York area at the age of 5 from the Netherlands, Persian born KIANA carried her love for music with her everywhere. Growing up in constant change has taught her the beauty in letting go and adaptability, and as a result her lyricism is a form of observation of her ever-changing environment. Toronto has played a significant role in shaping her as a person and even more so as a musician. The cold air and city drive has found its way in her outlook, not just of people but life itself. KIANA has spent years honing and crafting her own unique Dark R&B sound and in 2018, at the age of 19, released her debut single “With or Without You.” A song that truly conveys her message of never getting too attached. After it’s release, the song was later featured on Toronto’s Flow 93.5 FM and Vibe 105.5 FM, and received positive reception from her hometown. Now nearly one year later, after doing several showcases, a major one held at The Mod Club Theatre and performing at Toronto’s NXNE festival, KIANA has returned in 2019 with new inspired energy and is ready to make her mark.
