Krista Detor is a performer out of Bloomington, Indiana, whose album, Mudshow was released in 2006 to international critical acclaim, garnering an average of 4+ star reviews, and reaching the #1 spot on the Euro-Americana Chart. Signed in Europe with Corazong Records, Detor’s follow-up album, Cover Their Eyes made similar waves in the European musical world having released at #3 on the chart.
2010 brings the release of Chocolate Paper Suites to rave reviews. The AllMusic Guide says “It’s rare to say that a CD is so good it deserves to make the artist famous, but that’s the case with this.” 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.
Signed to Fleming Artists, U.S., she’s rapidly making a name for herself in the acoustic music world – touring the U.S. and Europe consistently and sharing stages with Suzanne Vega, Aaron Neville, Joan Armatrading, Loudon Wainwright, Colin Linden, Luka Bloom, Slaid Cleaves, Eliza Gilkyson, Carrie Newcomer, Pierce Pettis and John Gorka, among others and travels with her partner and producer, David Weber.
