Krista Detor's debut album, Mudshow, was released in 2006 to international critical acclaim, garnering an average of 4+ star reviews, and reaching the No. 1 spot on the Euro-Americana chart. Her follow-up record, Cover Their Eyes, achieved equally unanimous critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Krista has been featured on NPR and countless syndicated radio shows internationally. She defies genre, but the quality of her writing has been compared to the likes of Leonard Cohen, Laura Nyro, Tom Waits, and Joni Mitchell, company she is more than happy to keep.
Touring the U.S. and Europe consistently, Detor has shared stages with Joan Armatrading, Suzanne Vega, Loudon Wainwright, Sam Phillips, Colin Linden, Chris Wood, Luka Bloom, Slaid Cleaves, Peter Mulvey, The Wailing Jennys, Jakob Dylan, Jez Lowe, Carrie Newcomer, Lucy Kaplansky, and John Gorka, among others, and travels with her partner and producer, David Weber.
