The Long Bit:Born & raised in Wichita Falls, TX, Ciera Kensington grew up with music. She started singing at a young age and her grandmother passed down her guitar to her on her 13th birthday. She took lessons for six months and then continued to learn by teaching herself some of her favorite songs. During this time, she also started writing her own songs.
After graduation, Ciera went to Dallas Baptist University to major in Christian Studies/Music Ministry. Feeling like she couldn’t pursue music in a college atmosphere, Ciera left after one year with a plan to move to Nashville.
