Whether she's performing solo with her guitar and trumpet or with string quartet , Kyrie Kristmanson never ceases to surprise with her musical vision somewhere in between ecstatic ritual and pop song. Her elemental songs embody the raw beauty of the Canadian landscapes where she grew up.
Kyrie's 2010 album Origin of Stars brought her out of her native Canada and introduced her to the rest of the world. She relocated to Paris for the European tour and continued her research into the songwriters of medieval France who she cites as her musical ancestors. In March 2011, Kyrie released her Thundersongs EP in North America, whose songs explore the tension between sacred and profane yearning as sung by the men and women troubadours.
