Kyshona is a powerhouse in music – not just musically as demonstrated on this new song celebrating how when one of us is supported and excels, the tide rises for everyone – but also in her own activism. A trained music therapist she founded a charitable organization called Your Song which provides music therapy services to marginalized communities. Musically she has been here, there and umm…everywhere – performing at Newport Folk Fest, touring as support to the (incredibly wonderful) Allison Russell, she has appeared on late-night television singing with Margo Price, released a song with Adia Victoria, Margo, and Jason Isbell called “You Was Born To Die,” and recorded a cover of “Mississippi Goddam” with Adia and Kelsey Waldon. Not surprisingly all this activity has attracted the attention it well deserves.
Of the song ‘Rise The Tide‘ Kyshona says, “Over the past three years, I have seen it all around me–from acknowledgment of things that are wrong in the music industry to people lending support, giving space, and making strides. As artists in our community are finally being placed in the spotlight, with each success we have individually, we rise the tide together. This song acknowledges and celebrates that–and is meant as a call of encouragement to keep doing the work that isn’t always easy.”
