I’ll be honest— as a singer-songwriter, I never dreamed of starting my path as a freelance writer. But after I realized the immense power that being able to write had in any industry, I pursued it during the depths of 2020. Now, years later, I’ve been so lucky to have a full-time income from my […]

I went from the fast-paced NYC grind as a newly-graduated theatre major to writing music in our cozy, holistic and ever-inspired home studio in Greenville, South Carolina.

FEMALE SONGWRITER

Hi, I’m KIRA VIOLET.

But once I realized the beautiful power that female songwriters can bring to their artistic realities, I shifted towards a more abundant, manifestation-based lifestyle, and everything changed.

My life was once full of hustle, a starving artist mentality, with a clutching urge for others to cast me in their work.

I leveraged a strong work ethic, the Law of Attraction, and manifestation to achieve any creative goal I had. When I wanted to get into a theatre school, get cast in a production, and work professionally? Energy and strategy were my guiding lights.

Using these creative tools, I realized a huge roadblock in my way to artistic fulfillment-- I was placing all my energy into auditioning, aka hoping someone else would see a spark in me.

Once 2020 came around, I learned that the only person in charge of an artist who wanted to manifest her reality was her. Instead of focusing on what was out of my control, to get a full grasp on my creative reality, I needed to learn how to create my work myself.

So I brought over STATiC’s acoustic, plunked out some chords on the guitar, and started to document the melodies that were spiraling in my head.

Most importantly, I stopped focusing on being one of the best female songwriters, or performers— but on being the most fulfilled, inspired, creative version of myself.

My motto? Intention, energy + strategy over natural talent.

I adore Daniella’s warm, inviting energy and being subscribed to her Digest, too! And of course, her big sister energy that brings me nostalgia from her Trina Vega days.

As a singer/songwriter who’s also all about that plant-based, natural lifestyle, I’ve become somewhat of a connoisseur of healthy vegan snacks. 🌱 In fact, we have 2 ✌️ special eaters in our household (aside from the cats, most of which will eat pretty much anything): Kira: plant-based and dairy-free STATiC: allergic to gluten Since we both […]

I remember that first feeling of being on stage— the energy, yet total peace. I knew it was my home.

Then, I went to The William Esper Studio, where Nancy Mayans said words that I always thought of but never had the words for. I realized they embodied my creative process in every facet of performance. A purpose, a soul’s calling...

My Creative Process

as a female songwriter.

Female songwriters

Performing is a collective prayer, bringing people together to life the vibration of the room as a whole.

Art is an artist’s love language and most powerful act of service.

Performing helps others heal by reminding them how to feel.
