Kris Delmhorst’s stunning new album ‘The Wild’ is capturing attention and reverence among critics. ‘The Wild’ debuted at #9 on the NACC folk chart. She’s also taped a session for NPR’s Folk Alley. She and Jeffrey Foucault (her husband and co-producer/multi-instrumentalist on ‘The Wild’) kick off the second leg of their tour together. It’s her first tour collaborating with her husband Foucault and both artists are on stage the entire time, first during his set with a full, then a series of duets as a duo, and finally her headlining set with the band again.

"Indelible[,] enveloping [, and] hypnotizing... While this is one of Delmhorst's most gently-executed albums, her gifts as a writer and singer are still on display. "
- Allan Raible, ABC News.com, September 25, 2017
“A constant search — for love, for inspiration and for one’s own identity.”
- Amy McCarthy, The Boot, August 24, 2017
“Literate, allusive [atop] a marvelous, tense groove that holds throughout, no matter the sonic particulars of individual songs.”
- Stuart Munro, The Boston Globe, October 19, 2017
- Chris Steffen, All Music, September 21, 2017
- Jonathan Frahm, Pop Matters, October 13, 2017
“Kris Delmhorst… has always had the ability to play emotional resonance like an instrument, with an unparalleled command of scale and perspective. She can create an emotional space in a song as small as a firefly, or as large and devastating as a hurricane… She demonstrates a mastery of that narrative tool, and the result is an album that smolders slow and hot… Blistering honesty [accompanied by] lushness in the music.”
- Victor Infante, Worcester Telegram, October 26, 2017, full review here
“Shivery poignancy… haunting atmospheres and emotional rivers.”
- Bliss Bowen, Pasadena Weekly, September 21, 2017
“The Wild casts a shadowy sense of reflection.”
- Paul Robicheau, Improper Bostonian, October 13, 2017
