Born Robert Darshae-Kier Boyd on the Evening of February 21, 1982 in Tampa, Florida. At that time Kiér did not yet understand the challenges that would be placed upon him and before him in his lifetime. His child hood was not promised to be glorious nor filled with joyous occasions surrounded by friends and family. A young man that never knew his father and was frequently on the move with his mother and older brother. He would soon realize that his life did not belong to him, more less the foundation that would soon become a reflection of an even greater design.
Being drawn to music, he joined the church choir as anyone else would. Singing in the choir gave him a starting point to what would now be a gift of song that would stay with him for years to come. Along this path the adolescent that became a teenager soon transformed into a well groomed, articulate, man. While in the military you would often find him walking up and down the hallways singing some song he had just learned. Or just a simple melody that popped into his mind. “Many would know that would be me,” he would proclaim, “ I often, sing when I am thinking or just b/c it calms me”.Present day this shy kid that was once afraid to ask for the simple things has realized that it was those things that made him what he is. Graduating in March of 2007 with a Bachelor’s of Art’s Degree, and later a Master of Art and eventually a Doctorate in Management.
He has worked on his blueprint for his music, the biographys' that will one day tell his life story as the missing piece... The thoughts for his future or not etched in stone because as he would say, “I don’t strive to be successful for myself; that would be selfish.” “Rather I strive to obtain a level of success that the youth that look up to me can aspire to a level even higher.”
Here’s what Kiér had to say about himself. “Music is the essence of the soul. It is the beat of the heart whether slow or fast. So with music I don’t strive to write 10 songs a week, or come up with a concept for every lyric that I sing. I simply sing and allow music to take its course. If it finds its way to your heart and soul then that song was meant for you. I sing to touch even the weariest of souls from 10 rows back to 2 stories up. I don’t proclaim to be the best, but one day, perhaps I just might catch a glimpse of it. Through my music, someone will be touched. Sometimes you have to begin at the root of your soul in order to make a song more then what it is. The most valuable possessions that you can hold are within your heart.
I am not asking for a minute of your time, but only for few seconds, just stop what you are doing and listen. Silence is the very essence from whence music originated. Sometimes instead of looking for that sound, you let it find you. Music should go deeper then what is written on paper. I leave you with this, The only thing that you will fail at in this life, are the things that you have yet to attempt.”
Through his words, Kiér has touched many, and hopes to reach many more. Through his music he will influence millions, and strive to alter that which is defined by success. I suggest you hold on, as this will be the ride of a lifetime.
