According to The Boot, “Kyshona effortlessly grooves between roots, R&B and folk music. On ‘Fear’ … she digs deep into a swampy hook that dredges the depths of our subconscious. While the song explores all of the ways we tell ourselves what we can’t do, Kyshona imbues it with the determination needed to free ourselves from our doubts.”
For a singer-songwriter, therapeutic qualities of the experience have seduced countless confessional composers, some of whom make known that they hold unfiltered expression as their highest artistic aim.
Kyshona Armstrong started out enabling others to enjoy the healing properties of songwriting, and keeping her thoughts to herself. When you’re a music therapist to incarcerated and institutionalized adults and school children with emotional behavior disorders, artistic considerations aren’t even on the table.
