Interview: Kiara Jordan – Be Again

This is a song about the refusal to believe something good is over – a chance to be again.


Hi, how are you today? How would you best describe your sound and who have been your biggest influences?

Thanks for getting in touch. I’m doing well thanks, just taking it one day at a time this year with all that’s going on. I hope that you are well too. Since I was three, I’ve always wanted to create music. It’s been 17 years of listening and learning from other bands to create my own sound. If I’m being honest, I’ve always thought of my sound as somewhat unique (or I’d like to think so), but my main inspirations have come from a variety of old and new indie/rock bands, namely the Rolling Stones, The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons and Oasis.

Tell us about the inspiration behind your single, ‘Be Again’.

Be Again was inspired by my recently ended 3 year relationship. As I moved from South Africa to the UK last year, my boyfriend and I continued to make it work, until March this year. Long distance sucks. Ultimately, the song is about how the distance was the only cause of the breakup, and if we find ourselves in different circumstances a few months or years from now, I’d want to give the relationship another go. I’d want us to ‘be again.’

Are you planning any more releases in the near future? Maybe an EP or an album?

In terms of new releases, I’m planning on releasing a song every three or so months, meaning I’ll have my next one out in the first week of September. I have quite a few songs recorded, so I’ll be releasing singles until I can fully develop my fan base, and from there I would l’ve to release an EP.

What about your other plans for the future? Are you planning any tours or live shows?

For the future, I’m planning on gigging quite a lot in London, especially seeing as the shows will start up again towards the end of August/September. I’ve been in contact with HotVox and Dead or Alive promotions regarding live shows, and will be posting more about it on my socials closer to the time.

To finish with a standard interview question: where do you see yourself in five years?

In five years, I would love to be making music successfully – putting my songs out there and being heard and loved by thousands of people (as cheesy as it may sound). I’m currently at university in Canterbury, however music has and always will be my passion. I’d love to make a living from my passion, so that’s what I’d like my life to look like five years from now. Nothing would make me happier.
