Kira Puru


Kira Puru is a multi-disciplinary artist and musician, based in Melbourne, Australia. Known for her dynamic live performances and genre-defying writing style, she is widely respected as one of Australia’s biggest voices. Kira quickly gathered a cult following with the hypnotic single Tension which has amassed 2.3 million streams. The September 2018 release of her self-titled EP showcased an exhilarating evolution. Second single Molotov landed at #75 on the triple j hottest 100 and has clocked up over 2.6 million streams. In 2019, Kira delivered the unconventional love song Why Don’t We Get Along and her anthemic jam with attitude Everything Is Better Without You, before she unveiled Idiot in 2020 – a deeply infectious track that represents strength in vulnerability.

The uniquely human star has performed sold-out national tours and supported Peking Duk and Yungblud. Kira has also taken the stage at Jam in a Jar, Yours and Owls and Grapevine Gathering Festivals.
