Spiritual Jazz & Music Therapy
Is my music actually a form of music therapy? Well I’ve certainly experienced it’s positive effect on my life and those around me; and I create it with the special intention of being sonically engaging and energetically up-lifting. People from around the world have written me and shared how the music gives them a sense of peace. For me personally, I began painting regularly and my spiritual understanding of some concepts I’d been studying for ages finally began to make sense to me. And this may be a coincidence, but I think not- my music engineer for the album “Vaudevellia!” went from a fast food diet to being vegan within a couple months of editing the record!

Word On The Street Is…
“Vaudevellia! is a well-crafted musical experience that is both humble and extraordinary.” ~Morena Duwe, Huffington Post
“Style-wise, she may seem unconventional and a little odd, but like Santigold or Regina Spektor before her, this kooky take on jazz, indie rock and rap will earn Kiravell a spot among the very few truly original female musical artists of this decade.” ~Layla Klamt, Guardian Liberty Voice
“Don’t watch art, become it, as Kiravell’s creative offerings argue she has.” ~ Tone Swep, Dope Magazine
“San Diego’s own Kiravell brings something new to the table with her jazzy, soulful, and mellow music. Her latest single, “Yello Hazy,” is just that – hazy and calming. The spiritual single shows off the singer’s unique vocals. Perfect for a coffeehouse, a festival, or just hanging at home…” ~Kaitlin, Mechanical Dummy
“Her lyrics are deeply meaningful and the rhythm in which that she portrays them is amazing.” ~Collin Logatto, Sonic Eclectic
“Positively radiant as it is enigmatic, “Charge” is best played with an open mind and high vibration.” ~Tia Scott, The Occurence LA
“Kiravell is the name you should be discussing over coffee tomorrow morning, right after you listen to her jazzy fusion of deliciousness, Vaudevellia!…” ~Ny Magee, Jaded Culture
Below you will also find my latest tunes and music videos including the romantic fall 2015 instrumental piano single Respirar. The music video for Cirque des Vies recently screened at the San Diego Film Festival. Big thanks to my brilliant film partner Marcus Macfarlane for helping me translate my music video visions into reality!
