Kris Delmhorst

“Exceptional lyrics and captivating voice” -Utne Reader

“Literate, allusive…a marvelous, tense groove that holds throughout, no matter the sonic particulars of individual songs.” – The Boston Globe

“Austerely beautiful tunes” – Minneapolis City Pages

“Delmhorst’s writing is remarkably vivid” – Twangville

Kris Delmhorst has spent the last two decades forging a songwriting career notable for a spirit of exploration and collaboration. Her most recent album, THE WILD (Oct 2017), was co-produced with her husband, fellow songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, and features a band drawn from players they share long history with as bandmates and friends. The album merges Delmhorst’s sophisticated melodies and hauntingly open voice with Foucault’s lean aesthetic to deliver a darkly hopeful, fiercely wise new collection of songs.

Prior to THE WILD, Delmhorst released six full-length records on the respected indie label Signature Sounds, as well as a panoply of EPs, side projects, and collaborations. A wide-ranging, eclectic artist, her recordings have included intimate acoustic sets, rock band renderings, home-recording landscapes collaged from found and unexpected sounds, and works of classic poetry refigured and set to music – not to mention an all-acoustic collection of covers of songs by new-wave masters The Cars. Delmhorst is a constant collaborator and has contributed vocals, cello, and fiddle to the work of fellow songwriters Anais Mitchell, Lori McKenna, Chris Smither, Mary Gauthier, Erin McKeown, Winterpills, Peter Mulvey, Gregory Alan Isakov, Session Americana, and many more.

Delmhorst lives in western Massachusetts with Foucault and their young daughter.
