Kira Isabella began singing and playing the guitar at 7 years old, under the tutelage of her father and her singing teacher Trina Langthorne. She was inspired by fellow Canadian country singer Shania Twain and her then recent album, Up!, to enter the country music industry. Her songwriting began development through writing poetry, beginning in the fourth grade. At the age of 14, Kira Isabella won the Rising Star Award in the Female Open Category of a Blyth, Ontario, arts festival. The consequential media exposure that led well-known music producers to Kira Isabella would help launch her career as a country singer.
