Kris Delmhorst w/ Claire Holley
Kris Delmhorst was born in Brooklyn in 1970 and has been a wide ranging and restless consumer and producer of music ever since. Her previous Signature Sounds releases include 2008's largely self-recorded Shotgun Singer, "a work of lo-fi beauty... evidence of an artist taking flight" -Boston Herald: "Beautifully flaunts a minimalist artistic approach...among the best tunes Delmhorst has ever recorded" - No Depression, and 2006's Strange Conversation, a collection of songs inspired by the work of famous poets "As seamless and brave as it is brilliantly creative - Irish Times, "moody, euphoric, and transcendent" -LA Times.
Claire Holley says: "I was born in Jackson, Mississippi and lived there for most of my childhood until I went away to college in the midwest. It was there that I began performing and writing songs. Thanks to some helpful professors and friends, I was able to thrive creatively and even find my way into a recording studio here and there. Soon after that, I surprised myself and fell in love with a Mississippi boy. After we married, we looked at a map of the U.S. and decided North Carolina might be a good place to live. So off we went with no jobs and no place to live.
"Somehow we talked a man into letting us rent an apartment, and I started performing gigs in Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh. I met John Plymale and he helped me make my first record called Night Air. WUNC was kind enough to start playing my songs from this and another record of hymns called Sanctuary. I started traveling around the country as a solo performer.
"Since then I've made a few more records, a couple of which were put out by Yep Roc Records. I've also moved to Los Angeles, which is still hard for me to believe. One of the best things about playing music is getting to write and sing with other musicians and work with filmakers. Thanks for listening."
