Kris Delmhorst was born in Brooklyn in 1970 and has been a
wide-ranging and restless consumer and producer of music ever
since. Over the course of a dozen years touring the USA and Europe,
she has released six full-length albums as well as assorted side
projects and collaborations, and built a reputation as an artist
willing to take chances and explore new ground. Her Signature
Sounds releases include 2008's largely self-recorded Shotgun
Singer ("a work of lo-fi beauty, and evidence of an
artist taking flight" - Boston Herald, "Beautifully
flaunts [a] minimalist artistic approach...among the best tunes
Delmhorst has ever recorded...they get better each time you revisit
them" - No Depression), and 2006's Strange Conversation,
a collection of songs inspired by the work of famous poets ("a
remarkable album...as seamless and brave as it is brilliantly
creative - Irish Times, "moody, euphoric, and transcendent"
- LA Times).
