Native to the coast, Kiara Jack & The Jills is an original world folk roots band with a live sound that spans world music and contemporary genres. Kiara Jack is the centre of the band’s eclectic-edged musical offering.
Earlier this year, the band launched EP Only in Time along with a video for single Makeshift Forest. The EP followed on from the band’s 2013 release of Shards of Glass.
They’ve got some big shows on the horizon and we thought it was worth a quick chat with front woman Kiara. We started with a chat about the response to the video and single release for Makeshift Forest and she said the response has been positive.
“The response has just been huge in comparison to merely releasing a single without a visual adaptation / music clip,” she said. “I think we have to make music clips more often.”
They’re doing something quirky to celebrate the Makeshift Forest single too. “We’ll have limited edition succulent plants on our merch table. Each pot is one of a kind, with hand-written lyrics installed around the claypots,” Kiara said. Cool.
