"She is not just a songwriter, nor accomplished musician, nor poignant entertainer - I have been awed by the soul-punching talent of Krista Detor.." - WNC Magazine
 
MusicDish magazine calls her work: "..like Richard Wright’s 'Manchild in the Promised Land' or the musical equivalent of Akira Kurosawa’s 'Dreams';" The Allmusic Guide calls her “An artist of rare ability with a deep poetic gift,” and Rolling Stone, "A small miracle."  Krista Detor’s solo albums have reached national and international prominence. She's shared stages with Victor Wooten, Loudon Wainwright, The Neville Bros. and Joan Armatrading, among many others. but she is no ordinary songwriter: Detor has been involved in several award-winning theatrical collaborations, including the highly-acclaimed 'Wilderness Plots,' (PBS national), for which she and fellow writers were recognized by the Indiana Legislature for contributions to the arts (2010/2017). She was the only American woman invited to The BBC's Darwin Songhouse Project, Shrewsbury England (2009); has been commissioned to write musical theatre for The U.S. Dept. of State in New Delhi, India (2012); For the Indiana Arts Commission (2013 & 2016); and has written commissioned choral pieces for several national and int'l choirs. In addition, she's been a returning presenter at Stanford University, et.al., conducting songwriting seminars, performances and presentations throughout the world, including repeat workshops for IMRO (The Irish Music Rights Organization), and, in 2017, conducted the first of an ongoing series of cross-cultural, immersive songwriting retreats in Ireland with her friend, lauded literature scholar Dr. Rod C. Taylor. 
 
She is proud to have been awarded two artist residencies in 2018, including the prestigious Hedgebrook Women's Writing Residence, and Songwriting Works, as part of an NEA-funded study of the effect of arts in community, and is launching her own residency retreat in Bloomington, Indiana, called 'The Hundredth Hill.'
