“Time is an illusion that helps things make sense” - Rebecca Sugar
At the age of 14, singer-songwriter Keira Costelloe has the natural gift of song and voice. Her distinctive tone blends incredibly well with synth-driven, modern pop records – a sound that would make artists/producers in the likes of The Chainsmokers and Zedd proud. She resides in the beautiful country of Malaysia with her Malaysian Mom and British Dad.
Keira has been creating music since the age of 11, her musical direction can be described as Indie/Pop/ EDM/Future Bass, and her influences are The Chainsmokers, Melanie Martinez, Hailee Steinfield, Halsey, Post Malone, Rebecca Sugar, Bazzi, Billie Eilish, Snail House to name but a few.
Her first professionally produced single "Tell Me" was released in May.'20 and has been a huge success receiving great reviews from her musical peers and has built a growing fan base. "Never Going Back" was Keira's second single and was released in Nov,'20, this too followed similar success and continues to ride high on the various streaming platforms.
Her third single was released 12th March,'21, the song is called "You're My Somebody". The single is the product of a new "local" collaboration with MFMF, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where Keira and the Guys have hit it off really well and everyone is really happy with the sound and direction of this new song.
Keira and MFMF are working on developing four new songs in the coming 12 months and the first of the four is already in the final stages of completion. Keira is excited at being able to explore new melodies and harmonies and of course, to drive her style of minimalistic lyrics, where she wants the listener "to fill in the blanks" and to make it their own story or set of memories.
The plan is to release two more singles this year, one in the Summer and one in time for Christmas :)
To explore her creative side that drives her music-making and to create a sound that is uniquely hers and is recognised as hers. Keira would love to blend her art and photography into the design concepts of her future single/album covers and the same for any future video productions that support her new songs.
Keira also has ambitions to create an animation series one day, but first her music-making story takes priority 😊
