Kyshona has always lent her voice and music to those that feel they have been silenced or forgotten.
She began her career as a music therapist, working in mental health hospitals and with at-risk youth, using music to redirect behaviors and emotions. She wrote her first songs with her patients, students and inmates. Kyshona soon found the need to write music independently and explore her own writing voice. This eventually took her to Nashville where she dove into the writing culture.
Kyshona has learned how to balance her music career with her passion for music therapy. She has had her music placed in major primetime television shows on NBC, ABC and CBS, she mentors youth songwriters, brings music to those suffering with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disorder and teaches songwriting to incarcerated women in Nashville.
Audiences will find a common thread of overcoming, hope, and empowerment in her music. "Kyshona Armstrong has been called upon to represent for soul and gospel in roots, rock and folk lineups and to bring singer-songwriter sensibilities to R&B bills. But wherever she plants her feet, she does so with righteous conviction and a strong sense of her own voice."- NPR Music
