Kieran been compared to Hawkeye, Ramona Flowers, Tony Stark, and Tank Girl! – but IRL, Kieran Strange, a quirky and powerful young artist blending pop sensibilities, dynamic guitars, and high-energy live shows into her own brand of British pop-punk. At the age of seventeen, Kieran left her parents, family, and small English fishing village behind in order to chase her dream of making music; Kieran traveled to Vancouver, Canada where Kieran now resides, writing and performing songs about rebellion, relationships, and RPGs.
Standing firmly as a voice for the different and discarded, Kieran has been rather publicly questioning her gender since December 2015. These days, Kieran always makes sure to be open, outspoken, and passionate in ones beliefs; some of the causes as Kieran fights to support include LGBTQ+ issues and rights, feminism, autism awareness, racial equality, and many other forms of mental health and suicide awareness.
Hot on the heels of Kieran past releases – Adamantine Heart (2012) and Last Hero Standing (2015) – the bedheaded geek has toured multiple countries (including Canada, US, UK, and Japan), played hundreds of shows, conventions, and festivals, and is currently working on multiple singles to release in the summer and fall of 2016! Along with Tasty Peach Studios, Kieran’s one of the minds and voices behind KonekoYO!, as well as the founder of the #ifeelinvincible and #cosplaynotconformity cosplay and con scene movements. Kieran encourages you to check out The Kaleidoscope Project on Facebook — a safe haven created to inspire, encourage, and educate LGBTQ+ geeks and their allies!
Shoot Kieran a tweet at @kieranstrange during the con and say hi! (And in case you’re wondering, Kieran is comfortable with She/Her/Hers, He/Him/His and They/Them/Their pronouns, and encourages that you let her know what your preferred pronouns are when you meet in person! ;D)
