Kris Delmhorst is a veteran of the indie Americana world, with vivid songwriting, soulful delivery, and adventurous arrangements. Called “bold and brilliant” by the Boston Globe and “transcendent” by the LA Times, she’s been compared to artists as varied as Anaïs Mitchell, Lucinda Williams, and Juana Molina – though she cites Rickie Lee Jones as an artistic north star. You don’t have to believe in anything mystical to feel the molecules around you shift just a little when you listen to Kris Delmhorst. Long Day in the Milky Way, her new album, finds the gifted lyricist at the height of her craft.
“Literate, allusive…a marvelous, tense groove that holds throughout, no matter the sonic particulars of individual songs.” —The Boston Globe
