Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

Singer and songwriter Kris Delmhorst was raised in Brooklyn, NY. She trained in classical cello early on, then used her skills to land work with jazz bands and folk singers in the area. A move to Maine -- and a very long winter -- gave her time to learn to play the fiddle and guitar. In 1996, she relocated to Boston, MA. By this time she had years of experience at performing and was ready to take a step up in the world of music, so she set to work on a demo tape titled Swim for It. In 1998, Delmhorst finally finished recording her debut album, Appetite. She had some talented help on the first offerings, including producer Alan Williams, fiddler Joe Kessler, drummer Billy Conway, guitarist Thomas Juliano, and bassist Mike Rivard. Delmhorst's next release was a successful EP, Oddlot. Her third release was another full-length album, Respond. "Marylou," "Tear My Stillhouse Down," "Red Herring," "Garden Rose," "Moscow Song," and "Mean Old Wind" are some of the tracks fans can find on her recordings. Kris Delmhorst was nominated for Outstanding Female Singer/Songwriter twice by the Boston Music Awards. She has also toured extensively, appearing at many festivals.
