Kris Delmhorst is an American songwriter, singer, and instrumentalist. She has 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.
A constant collaborator, Delmhorst has appeared on vocals, cello, and fiddle on records and stages with fellow songwriters Anais Mitchell, Lori McKenna, Chris Smither, Mary Gauthier, Erin McKeown, Winterpills, Peter Mulvey, Gregory Alan Isakov, and many more.
Delmhorst's newest album, THE WILD (Oct 2017), was co-produced with her husband, 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.
Delmhorst lives in western Massachusetts with Foucault and their young daughter.
