Krista Detor / Bio

Of Songwriter Krista Detor’s work, Rolling Stone says, “A Small Miracle....” MusicDish magazine states: "Call [Mudshow] a novel like Richard Wright’s “Manchild in the Promised Land” or the musical equivalent of Akira Kurasawa’s “Dreams”: a collection of short pieces - stories or short films of dreams - that taken together, form a whole, more than the sum of its parts. " The Boston Herald says, simply, “All songwriters should be this good..”

Detor’s solo albums have reached national and international prominence, including #1 on the Euro-Americana Chart, and placement within the top 10 of the U.S. Folk and Independent Music charts. She has performed with such notable artists as Suzanne Vega, Joan Armatrading, The Neville Brothers, Slaid Cleaves, Louden Wainwright, Colin Linden, Sam Phillips, and John Gorka, among others. She's been recognized by the Indiana Legislature for Contributions to the Arts, and her choral works have been commissioned by the Ashland Women’s Choir, the Shrewsbury Community Choir, the Cincinnati Women’s choir, and others.

Detor has shared stages with Joan Armatrading, Suzanne Vega, Aaron Neville, Loudon Wainwright, Sam Phillips, Colin Linden, Chris Wood, Luka Bloom, Slaid Cleaves, Peter Mulvey, The Wailing Jennys, Jakob Dylan, Karine Polwart, Jez Lowe, Carrie Newcomer, Lucy Kaplansky, and John Gorka, among others, and travels with her partner and producer, David Weber.
