Hello! My name is Kira Hooks. I'm a soul/jazz/RnB based singer/songwriter in Nashville, TN. I'm a graduate of the LA College of Music in Pasadena, CA. I can operate solo, as a duo, trio, or full band and have experience working with multiple audiences/situations. I have a jazz standard repertoire and can cater to whatever decibel requirement needed. I've toured nationally doing intimate shows at house concerts and shows at well-known venues. I've also released multiple records and sung on other artists' records doing background vocals.
Kira did an amazing job with the arrangement of the song and her voice is heavenly! She communicated with me the whole time to make sure everything was perfect. She rocks and I thank her for making my proposal amazing!!!

What to Expect
A warm, sentimental, engaging performance built off the songwriting, musicianship, and vulnerability.
Born in Houston, TX, and raised around the world, Kira Hooks finds home in music. Her interest ignited at Berklee College of Music's Five-Week music camp, which led her to pursue study with some of Los Angeles' finest studio musicians at L.A. College of Music, in Pasadena, CA. In 2013, she released her debut EP "Underground Sky", produced by Nikhi Korula. following it up with her first full length album, "Elephant Heart," (2014), produced by John Avila. She describes her music as ecletic, nurturing, nostalgic, playful, provocative, romantic, silly, spiritual, and empowering. In the past couple of years, she has been revealing a new maturity, depth and vulnerability in her music. She currently lives in Nashville, TN and recently released her new EP, "The Lyric Apothecary" (May 2016), produced by Brian Irwin. Kira is now preparing to release an acoustic record in the fall, touring the US, and performing house concerts through Concerts in Your Home.
