Kiernan

Kiernan is the project of Minneapolis-based musician Laura Kiernan (she/her). Drawing sound inspirations from the likes of Big Thief, Waxahatchee, and John Prine, her songwriting mixes folk with indie rock and a hint of country. In May 2021, Laura released her first song entitled “Genie,” which she recorded in her bedroom and sent to Jared Johnson, guitarist and sound engineer, to mix and master. The single was inspired by the story of Genie Chance, a radio producer in Anchorage during the Great Alaskan Earthquake of 1964 - which Laura first heard while listening to the radio. It drew the attention of New York Times’ Daily producers, who featured it in their newsletter.

After many many voice memos, in 2023 Kiernan (the band) came together. They played their biggest show yet in December 2023, opening for The Last Revel at a sold-out Fine Line. It was after that show that the band got to work recording their first EP, Magnetic North - out June 10, 2024. Laura and the band hope their music nourishes your ears like a nice hunk of bread. It’s just like when you're feeding the pigeons: soft, silly, spacious and best done with friends.
