Born and raised in Barnsley, Yorkshire, music has always been a big part of Kiera’s life. Alongside school, and throughout her childhood, she attended the Kim Frost School of Dance achieving merits and distinctions in ballet, tap and modern as well as in singing.
She experienced different genres of music from a young age and was taken to live concerts on a regular basis (including Il Divo, Westlife, Christina Aguileira and Miley Cyrus). Her favourite band is Queen and she always has a poster of Freddie Mercury on her bedroom wall.
From 2015-18, Kiera studied Musical Theatre at the Stella Mann College of Performing Arts achieving a BA Honours degree in Performing Arts (Northampton University). She studied both dance, including ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary and commercial, and music, including pop and theatre, and singing, both solo and learning harmonies as part of an ensemble. As a soprano, her particular speciality was in singing works by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
After her graduation, Kiera moved to London to pursue her interest in the media, including social media. She created her own YouTube Channel ‘Kiera May’ where she uploads weekly fashion and lifestyle content, engaging with her subscribers on Instagram and Facebook. She loves radio and is delighted to have been invited to join the team at Qube.
Music remains a constant in Kiera’s life, including classical music in which her favourite composer is Ludovico Einaudi (it is on her bucket list to see him in concert one day). If she ever marries, she would like to walk down the aisle to Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel.
Sadly, Freddie Mercury will not be there.
