Kris Delmhorst is a singer songwriter who has built a thriving career and devoted following from the ground up - without major label hype. The same independence of spirit that led Delmhorst to spend early years working on subsistence farms, cooking on a schooner off the coast of ME, or hitch-hiking around Ireland with a fiddle on her back, is evident in the arc of her musical evolution: a willingness to work on her own terms and her own time.
Along the way, she’s parlayed a decade of successful touring into one of the most distinct voices in American music . Her Signature Sounds releases include 2008’s largely self-recorded Shotgun Singer. Adventurous, elegant, lucid, and haunting, the record is the work of a musician at full stride who has found a musical language equal to her vision.
Kris Delmhorst lives in western MA with husband Jeffre Foucault and daughter Hazel. www.krisdelmhorst.com/
