Kyra Goldman has been performing her original songs since she was a teen. She started her career in the Gospel/CCM music genre and played hundreds of concerts across the US and internationally. She appeared on national Christian television and radio programs in the US, the Netherlands and Germany, won several songwriting competitions, published with Universal Music Publishing Group, released several music videos, EPs and a self-titled debut album, and shared the stage with internationally known musical acts.
A mid-tour trip to Israel in 2015 changed the direction of her life and music. She felt very strongly connected to the people and the Land and decided to explore her identity at an Atlanta-area synagogue, which ultimately led her to conversion.
Kyra grew up on classic songwriters, whose influences can be heard in her thoughtful lyrics. Her acoustic singer/songwriter style has hints of Celtic, Jazz, Middle-Eastern, Caribbean and Soul influence.
Kyra released two singles with music videos that were recorded and filmed in Israel: the Hanukkah single, "Nes Gadol Haya Sham (A Great Miracle Happened There)" and "Lion Waking Up." During the pandemic she and Sue Horowitz released a co-written, Celtic-style Mi Chamocha called, "Who is Like You?" that features a montage of videos recorded by friends and family at home. Kyra recently became a cantorial student at AJR, is an artist-in-residence, and songleader at services. She writes new Jewish songs and settings for liturgical text and is currently working on an album project with co-writer and songleader, Tracy Friend. Details coming soon!
