The Kiera Plan

Want to Be in Our New Video?

We’d love to have you appear in a new video we’re making!

There are 3 new songs we’ll be releasing between now and June, and we have something really special in mind for one of the clips.  We’re looking for a couple dozen people to make special cameo appearances in that video.

Think you might be interested? Just e-mail us at thekieraplan@gmail.com and we’ll send you all the details about the project.  If it sounds good to you at that point, awesome!  If it doesn’t, no worries.

We’ll be able to film your cameo in just a couple minutes, and we can schedule that filming at your convenience anytime between now and March 4th.

There are some really positive messages in the new music, and we’re hoping that we can help make a difference with this project.  It’d be awesome to have you involved!

Psyched to talk more with you,

Shawn

Back in the Studio

Back in 2006, my friend John Collier and I started writing, recording, and performing as The Kiera Plan.   John provided the ferocious drums on the first Kiera Plan album, Dedication.    So, as I headed back into the studio a couple weeks ago to start work on some brand new music, it was great to have John back in the mix helping put some tracks together.

This is our first time working with producer Trevor Leonard (who you might have seen performing in Punchline on their recent tour, or with his group, The End of America).

This new music is heading in a new direction, so we’re excited to have Trevor on board helping to steer the ship into these uncharted waters.

Anybody who made it out to the benefit concerts for the Whole Planet Foundation (in 2013, and this past summer) might recognize a couple very special guests who will be featured on the new music, Abdul Zarrella and Kharee Staten.  Having written and performed with these gentlemen for a while now, it’s exciting to finally be putting some tracks together in the studio!

If you missed the live-tweeting from these first couple days in the studio, check out our Instagram for pics from the sessions.

We have 3 new songs in the works, and just one or two more days in the studio to finish them up – we should be back in with Trevor sometime mid-January.  The new music will be coming your way soon after that – hopefully the first single will get released sometime in February.

For now, just to re-introduce you to John, here’s one of our favorites he did with me on the first record, “One O’clock.”

Wishing you and your loved ones all a very Merry Christmas, and all the best for a happy and healthy new year!

All in One Place

What’s up, world?!

My name is Shawn, and since 2006 I’ve been making music with a number of amazing collaborators as The Kiera Plan.  Almost 10 years and 2 full albums of music in, I’m more excited about the project than ever.  I’m headed into the studio this Sunday to record some new music that will be coming your way early in 2016.  I can’t wait to share the new sound, the new mission, and the message of this new music with you.

In the meantime, all of the Kiera Plan music, videos, lyrics, info, and news will be here for you in one place on this new blog.

The music is a great place to start: all 22 songs we’ve released to date are up now streaming for you right here, along with lyrics, info, and videos.

Check out the Dedication page to hear all of our first album

Right Now to hear all of our second record,

and – if you missed it – the acoustic single “Time Flies” is also up here.

I’ll have more blog for you pre-, during, and post-studio, so I hope you’ll check back for that.
