Singer-songwriter Kiara Kaltschnee was always involved in music growing up, playing woodwinds in instrumental ensembles. It wasn't until college she discovered songwriting as a way she could express herself authentically, sharing the most vulnerable pieces of herself. Her first album release, bittersweet nostalgia, explores love, loss, and feelings of despair as she navigates the relationships and experiences life brings. She spent the first half of 2023 recording and producing the album at Trinity College's recording studio in Hartford, CT. As a recent graduate, she will continue her career in songwriting and performing. She hopes her music resonates with those who haven’t felt heard or seen and makes them feel less alone in the world.
