Bio

In the clutter and noise of the Australian singer-songwriter set, it can be hard to find a voice that really grabs you. But when you listen to Kristy Apps, you know you’re hearing something really special – it’s worth noting, “this is not music as wallpaper”.

Kristy Apps delivers her songs, as if she was hand delivering you a telegram wrapped in a powerhouse voice, written for you or someone you know. It’s a craft she has honed over a decade of writing and performing, carving her niche in the Australian songwriter community, while winning plenty of fans around the globe.
Together with the Shotgun Shirleys, Kristy has recorded her best work to date. Produced by ARIA and CMAA winning producer and performer Shane Nicholson.
Weaving finely spun elements of folk, alternative country and rock, The Shotgun Shirley’s delivers an experience to be celebrated.

Kristy Apps and the Shotgun Shirleys release their self-titled debut EP at the Visy Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse on Sept 12, followed by a national tour. Check out the web links for details.
