A Life in Maps...
I wrote this album during a tumultuous year. I was unhappy with what I was doing, and felt stuck in a world that I had centered on the idea of a brighter future. When the time came to enact my plan, everything fell apart. The ground moved from under me and I found myself somewhere completely different than I had expected.
I chose to call this album Kira’s Coming Soon not because I was chasing an imagined future I thought would make me happy. I named it Kira’s Coming Soon because I was blinded by hope; banking on an idyllic future where everything worked and things played out as I imagined.
I may be a dreamer, but I’m no fool. Making this album has helped me realize a few things.
Today, I feel the weight of the world more than ever. We live in crazy times where alternative non-realities are somehow becoming true. It’s only now that I realize we need something more than hope, we need courage in our disenchanted present.
My message is clear – bank in courage and find yourself living in a real world. Bank in hope and the world changes too fast to every fully realize anything. Kira will always be coming soon - live in something more than the future.
