Kyra Simone was born in the UK having a Caribbean background of St Lucian and
Grenadian parentage. A wonderful mixture of the islands, musical ties and cultural
influences has shaped how Kyra Simone thinks, feels, sounds and looks.
Coming from a musical family where her father played keys and sang and her mother
sung lead in a reggae steel band. Her musical tastes growing up were from Soca, calypso,
reggae and pop music. Her greatest influencers at the time being her mother and her
idols were Prince and Madonna.
Kyra had her first recording done at the tender age of six. ‘Wow when I listen to that I
can’t believe I was singing that high, its crazy, I was so young I barely remember it but I
have the tape to prove it’. Kyra recalls.
After a few years of singing with bands, recording, doing live performances with her
mother and joining a girl group, Kyra made a decision to take up singing full-time and
that’s when she found out she was pregnant. ‘It was the best thing that ever happened to
me I was so happy and really excited but I had to leave the girl band as I wanted to
concentrate on my baby’.
Once her son was born Kyra moved back to London and went to Lewisham College,
which is where she studied performing arts and music. Whilst there she worked with
Peer Publishing, BBC Worldwide and Mercury records, and was recognised by the
college for her talent and was featured in the college magazine.

The ‘Soul Searching’ EP is a selection of fresh, chilled and fruity soulful cuts exploring
the answers to questions about love, friendship, respect and following your heart.
Talking about the Soul Searching project Kyra stated: ‘This EP provides my insights to
questions that are common to all of us, some may agree and some may disagree with
what I have to say, but it’s my opinion and I have the right to express it.
I refuse to suppress my thoughts and views and the world will have to take me as I am
and I think that’s an important message to get across, be happy with who you are and
love yourself, respect others who respect you and have some self-respect, aspire to
achieve your passion in life and make this world a better place to live in, community
spirit and focussed human beings can make a big difference to the society we live in and
it starts with the small things, 2 have love (not to fall in love like it’s an uncontrollable
action), preserving your body for marriage, not letting no man abuse you, cherishing the
good moments, picking yourself up when your down and staying focussed, this is what
my music is about and ultimately leads you to the creator where your life is richly blessed
and peace is abundant’.

granted. Kyra says - 'The alluring sweet scent that the spiritual can pick up on is
something that all people should be aware of. It can keep you from trouble and lead you
to good times... Listen carefully to the words for insight...Enjoy!'
