The Songbirds Radio Hour: Kyshona

(Aired 5/13/23)

Artist. Activist. Music Therapist Gone Rogue.

Kyshona is an artist ignited by untold stories, and the capacity of those stories to thread connection in every community.

With the background of a licensed music therapist, the curiosity of a writer, the resolve of an activist and the voice of a singer, Kyshona is unrelenting in her pursuit for the healing power of song.

Kyshona blends roots, rock, R&B and folk with lyrical prowess.

She is both a sought-after collaborative vocalist, working with artists like Margo Price - whom she accompanied on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - Adia Victoria, who features Kyshona, Price and Jason Isbell in her single “You Was Born to Die” - and a burgeoning performer in her own right, whose 2020 release "Listen" was voted Best Protest Album of 2020 by Nashville Scene.

Kyshona’s nonprofit organization Your Song offers songwriting programs for youth empowerment programs, detention, re-entry, recovery, mental health and veterans centers and organizations.
