Nashville, TN — (November 20, 2013) —HitShop Records President Skip Bishop has announced the signing of an exclusive recording agreement with award winning star, Kira Isabella, for her U.S. music debut.
Kira, a Canadian native, is a relentless performer, attributing the start of her music career to a recital at the young age of seven. Her dreams of stardom have begun to take shape as she spent this fall opening for superstar Carrie Underwood on her Blown Away Tour in the market. Kira’s love of music, influenced by the likes of Shania Twain and Faith Hill, and real world experience venture far beyond her 20 years, having signed with Sony Music Entertainment Canada in 2009. In 2012 she won the “Rising Star” award at the Canadian Country Music Awards, and went on to earn the coveted “Female Artist of The Year” award this year. Kira is now poised to embark on her U.S. music debut.
“We have watched Kira’s meteoric rise to Canadian superstardom! Her numerous top-ranked awards and consistent radio smashes speak for her tremendous talent,” exclaims Bishop. “She is a lovely and a remarkably gifted young vocalist and performer. The stage is set for Kira to begin her U.S. Country radio journey and we are so honored that she chose HitShop as her Nashville home!”
Kira celebrates the signing and the season with a special holiday treat for fans. “A Country Boy For Christmas,” written by Kira along with Jason Phelps, was just shipped to country radio and is available on iTunes on November 26th.
