Kiani Smith as most of you would know, is our own local shining star! Seventeen-year-old Kiani, who hails from Bribie Island, was accepted into the audition round of Australian Idol after applying last year. Kiani who goes by the stage name Kiani Jazz, has been singing and learning to play the guitar since she was seven years old, with her father as her teacher. Music, for her, has always been a medium of self-expression and a source of joy.

Over time, Kiani’s singing talent gained popularity locally, eventually leading her to audition for one of the biggest stages – Australian Idol. With her angelic voice, Kiani sang “2002” by Anne Marie in her unique style, winning the judges’ hearts and leaving everyone in awe. It’s safe to say that she did more than justice to the song, securing herself a place in the top 30. That was only the beginning, Kiana, who is the youngest of the group then made to the top 12 and at the time of print she is a firm favourite making the top ten round.

When asked what advice she would give to young performers in the Moreton Bay area, Kiani emphasized the importance of not letting anything come in the way of their dreams. She encouraged aspiring musicians to pursue their passion wholeheartedly and enjoy every moment of it. As a musician, Kiani’s goal is to take her music mainstream and showcase her talent to a broader audience. Her parents have been her pillars of strength and support throughout her musical journey. With several years of experience playing the guitar, ukulele, piano, and drums, she hopes to make a mark in the music industry.

A message from Kiani:

“I really want to thank all of Bribie Island and the Bribie islander magazine for getting behind me; I’m overwhelmed with the love, messages, and especially the support I have received from all of you. Thank you so much for all your votes and for making it possible for me to now be in the Top 10 of Australian Idol.”
