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, writing her first songs with her patients–the students and inmates under her care. She soon found the need to write independently and find her own voice, and endeavor which led her to the fertile ground of the Nashville creative community and songwriting culture. Since then, she has learned how to balance her music career with her passion to heal the hurting. Audiences will find a common thread of empowerment, overcoming adversity, and finding hope in her work.
After her powerful performances, concertgoers often ask, “What can I do?” Her response? “Listen.”
“…wherever she plants her feet, she does so with righteous conviction and a strong sense of her own

“Listen highlights Kyshona’s descriptive songwriting and soulful vocals alongside a versatile blend of
folk, rock and R&B influences.” – Billboard
“One of the most compassionate and uplifting young voices in Nashville today.” – Ann Powers/ NPR Music’s World Cafe
