Nashville-based singer-songwriter Kyshona has always lent her voice and music to those that feel they have been silenced or forgotten.
Honing a message of empowerment, overcoming adversity, and finding hope, she released her aptly titled LP “Listen” in February 2020. The album’s 10 tracks are co-produced with Andrija Tokic (St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff) and recorded mostly at his famed Nashville studio The Bomb Shelter.
Kyshona’s lyrical prowess mixed with a compelling blend of roots, rock, R&B, and folk uplifts the marginalized and brings awareness to the masses. After her powerful performances, concertgoers often ask, "What can I do?" Her response? "Listen."
"Listen highlights Kyshona’s descriptive songwriting and soulful vocals alongside a versatile blend of folk, rock and R&B influences. While Kyshona sings of fear, hope, community, love and understanding throughout the 10-track project, she also finds herself.”
“Everyone is making political records. Everyone is making albums that speak to ‘this moment.’ Too few of them are making music that speaks to the people who inhabit this moment. Kyshona does.”
