Kyrie Kristmanson est en passe de devenir le nouveau phénomène de la scène folk mondiale. Repérée à quinze ans lors du Winnipeg Folk Festival, cette jeune canadienne à la voix cristalline fut une des révélations de l'année 2007 dans son pays. Kyrie Kristmanson puise son inspiration dans le jazz, la folk et le rock alternatif, mais c'est surtout son chant, limpide et hypnotique, qui séduit le public.

In 2008 he toured playing piano and getting drunk in The Milwaukee's Best Band. James writes twice a day—songs, poems and stories, first thing in the morning and late in the afternoon, always with a coffee. He is working on a book of poems, and a book of stories. He goes on stage after a whiskey, in a red sweater, with a freshly shaven face. He sings sadly and speaks funny.
