Kira Mac

Kira Mac is a band built on straight up old school blues rock riffs with a modern edge, a lot of flares, soul and double shots of rock n roll. Twinning powerhouse vocals and a killer guitar lead, they’re a force to be reckoned with.
They’re a musical collection made up of misfits from different corners of the country, from Stoke to Hull, and by chance they met in the middle of Manchester in 2018.
Whilst studying music at University in the City, they had one thing in common, they wanted to play and write great music, that came from a place of working-class struggles, an honest outlet.
As a band collective, that has taken influence from great bands and artists that have come before them, raised on old school rock, blues, and everything else in between.
Their raw talent and distinguished tone are built from grass roots and the love of eclectic sounds and acoustic skills. Being an established writer and vocalist, to then forming and developing a band with guitarist Joe Worrall, Kira Mac has formed into the driving force of original song writing and unique sounds that they produce today. With Alex, Bret and Cal on rhythm and percussion.
Their debut single ‘One way ticket’ is an anthem about escapism and the things that you’ll do to follow a dream, ‘if we had a pound for every time someone said, ‘you’ll never make money in rock’. we’d be making money in rock’
Despite everything that has been thrown at the music industry the past few years, there will be a full studio album out this year, and the band will be back to shows and festivals across the UK, as soon as possible.
