UGA graduate Kyshona began her career as a music therapist, but the growing need to find her own voice and write independently led her to make a move to Nashville. There she developed the program Your Song dedicated to connecting performing arts centers, musicians and artists with vulnerable communities to promote healing through songwriting. As a songwriter herself, her latest LP, Listen, has been praised by NPR, Billboard, Rolling Stone and more. Kyshona blends folk, rock and R&B influences to speak on empowerment, overcoming adversity and finding hope. Because the record was released just as the pandemic began shutting things down, this is the artist’s first extensive tour to celebrate the release.
