Summer Breeze: Kyshona Armstrong

  • Lions Park 450 South Flood Avenue Norman, OK, 73069 United States (map)

Kyshona Armstrong started out enabling others to enjoy the healing properties of songwriting. When describing the positions she held during her decade or so in the mental health field, she punctuates each chapter with the same phrase: "That got kinda heavy” and "You've gotta know when to tap out.” So Armstrong got on the college singer-songwriter circuit, blending skills of empathizing and entertaining, and then moved to Nashville in January 2014 Armstrong now embraces repetitive internal rhythms that emerge in some of her songwriting — likening them to both gospel spirituals and the viscerally simplistic utterances of her former patients — and she's delivering her roots-soul originals with articulate warmth and newly claimed authority. Kyshona was such a hit at Winter Wind last year, that she has been invited back, with a backup band, for the Summer Breeze crowd to enjoy.
