Kiana Weber was born and raised on a farm just outside of the small town of Chelsea, Michigan. She began playing the piano at the age of 5 but soon after she begged her parents to let her play the violin. At the age of 7 she started taking Suzuki violin lessons and by 14 she was playing in the most elite youth orchestras and ensembles in the state. In high school, Kiana developed an interest in fiddling and guitar. She performed with a celtic band called The Chelsea House Orchestra across the midwest. During this time she also began gigging on her own as a singer-songwriter and won numerous awards for her songwriting.

After graduating High school Kiana attended the University of Michigan where she studied violin with Stephen Shipps. While in school she continued to gig with many bands while exploring alternative styles on the violin. She has taken lessons and appeared in master classes with Rodney Friend, Gabriel Bolkovsky, Aaron Berofsky, Alasdair Fraser, Jerry Holland, Christian Howe, Dennis Wilson, Ellen Rowe, Marian Hayden, and Jeremy Kittel. In 2007 Kiana formed her own acoustic trio called the Daughters of Newgrass which performed original compositions of a diverse fusion of rock, celtic, bluegrass, and Jazz. She also performed in an alternative rock band with Charlene Kaye and Darren Criss (of Glee fame). In 2009 Kianaıs studies were interrupted when she was recruited by the world famous violin troupe, Barrage. Kiana toured with Barrage for three years and appeared in theaters, festival stages, and television specials all over the North America, Central America, Europe and Asia. One of the highlights of her travels was performing on Beijing TVıs televised New Yearıs Special broadcast to an estimated 50 million viewers. Kiana joined Gaelic Storm in the fall of 2012 and has toured with them since. When not playing music or traveling, Kiana can be most often be found out running, biking, or hiking the Irish Hills of Southern Michigan.
