KIANA VALENCIANO

Singer | Dancer | Actress | Host | Commercial Model | Fashion Blogger

 
 

BACKGROUND

Music is as natural to Kiana Valenciano as breathing. At the tender age of seven she bagged prestigious awards such as Awit Awards’ “Best Christmas Recording,” and “Best Child Recording Artist” for “Once Again It’s Christmas Time” in 2000.

As she came of age Kiana sought a career in the fashion industry and graduated from Raffles Design Institute, furthering her studies in London where she took short-term design courses at Central Saint Martins in 2015. Her prowess has yielded her collaborations with leading visual artists Daryl Feril and Ken Samudio for a pop-up store campaign called Little White Box. Since then she rose to prominence as a fashion blogger, style icon and lifestyle influencer.

In a digital era Kiana is certainly one that stands out with more than 88,900 followers on Twitter (@kianavee) and 282,000 on Instagram (@kianavee). She was Candy Magazine’s “Readers' Choice as Favorite Blogger” for 2015.  The blog, simply called KV, has more than 100,000 views. At kianavee.com, she occasionally blogs about her favorite interests: fashion, travel, and music.

She was chosen by Australian makeup brand “BYS” as their first Filipina brand ambassadress in 2016, while also dealing with brand endorsements and partnerships with top brands such as Oxygen, Converse and Jollibee. A favorite cover girl of glossy magazines, she has graced the covers of Scout, MEGA Magazine, Chalk & Rogue Magazine. “Metro Magazine” took a look at what she had achieved so far and included her in its prestigious list of women to “watch out for” in 2016.

Despite her foray in other pursuits, Kiana never strayed far from her first love and was making covers on YouTube and is also writing songs of her own.  As a recording artist Magic 89.9 named her “Most Promising New Female Singer in 2014” for the duet “With You.” She was chosen to interpret the fun and upbeat love song “Dear Heart”, a finalist for PhilPop 2014, and was awarded the Awit Awards’ Best New Female Recording Artist trophy in 2015. Kiana has performed in concerts in the Philippines and abroad, rendered solo numbers in television shows like The X Factor Philippines, Showtime and ASAP, and has shared the stage with Maestro Ryan Cayabyab and the San Miguel Philharmonic Orchestra. Recently she performed live for the Spotify segment of the international DJ Ingrosso at the Pool Club, has taken the stage for the Manila X Style and Music Festival for three consecutive years and has toured the United States as a guest artist.

2017 ushered in a new era for Kiana as an artist, beginning with releasing her self-composed solo single “Circles.” She continues her stride in the music industry with urban/hip-hop hits like the chart-topping “Does She Know”, cutting edge music videos for her compositions such as “Misfits”, representing the Philippines with a prestigious slot in the 2017 conference “Music Matters” and releasing her first EP entitled “Grey” with music label “Tarsier Records.” She ended 2018 with a bang, treating fans and music aficionados to a new single “See Me”, preluding the release of her first full length album in early 2019.
