For all of us, it’s “Been a Long Day in the Milky Way”; a conversation with Kris Delmhorst


Kris Delmhorst is celebrating the release of her “Long Day in the Milky Way” album on 8/14. She was gracious to spend some time with me on Nine Volt Heart recently to talk about the writing and recording of this latest record. We talk about the song writers retreat where many of these songs were conceived as well as her “songwriter sorority” that Kris relied on for input. The segment includes “Wind’s Gonna Find a Way” from the new release as well as Kris’ cover of Rikkie Lee Jones’ “The Horses”. We added in a song from Jeffrey Foucault called “Pretty Hands” from his latest effort, “Blood Brothers”.

We discuss her band for this release and the recording process in Parsonsfield, Maine which she describes as “summer camp”- like in it’s approach. The topics also include her long time friend, producer and drummer, Billy Conway who also has released a new disc called “Outside Inside” on Crazy View Records.

Kris Delmhorst will be debuting these new songs at Black Birch Vineyards in Hatfield, Massachusetts on August 18th. For a sneak early peek, give this segment a listen.
