Kyshona. Artist. Activist. Music Therapist.
Kyshona Armstrong, a music therapist gone rogue, has a natural gift for using music to tap into emotion. She began her career as a music therapist, working in mental health hospitals and correctional facilities, writing music with her patients and using music to redirect behaviors and emotions. Kyshona soon found the need to write music independently to help her process her daily experiences with her clients.
Audiences will often find a common thread of overcoming, hope, and empowerment in her songwriting and storytelling. She uses her emotional intelligence to create her unique bluesy and soulful style of music. Her latest album, "The Ride", shows off vocal stylings that are reminiscent of Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Al Green.
Kyshona has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Wynonna Judd, Lake Street Dive, Meiko, Margo Price, Even Stevens, JD McPherson, Anthony David, Cracker, and many more. Deemed “One of the most compassionate and uplifting young voices in Nashville today.” by NPR Music’s World Cafe, Kyshona’s music has been heard on Issa Rae’s (HBO’s Insecure) short film series, and major prime time television shows on ABC, CBS and NBC.
