Krista Muir

Krista Muir lives in a world of surrealism, cuckoo clocks and antique lampshades. Since the early 2000’s she has released seven full-length albums under her name or fauxvarian alter ego Lederhosen Lucil, co-written with Kid Koala (Yo! Gabba Gabba! live), published an art book entitled The Joy of Hosen, toured internationally and performed regularly at SXSW and Pop Montreal.

Other projects include composing the score for the immersive interactive game "Kit Operette" (Gaité Lyrique, Paris, 2012), penning love songs for the Chanson-O-Gramme personal commission project, and releasing an EP of original bilingual lullabies for new parents entitled "A Pocket Full of Lullabies" (2015). Muir has also collaborated several times with award winning filmmaker Kara Blake and created video odes for companies like The Arterie and Daily tous les jours.

Muir was the inaugural artist-in-residence at Fisch Haus in 2016 (Wichita, KS) and FL!GHT Gallery in 2017 (San Antonio, TX), where she gave performances, organized multidisciplinary events and collaborated with local artists to create new work and foster cultural exchange.

Most recently Muir released her 7th full-length album The Tides (2018) – a cathartic collection of misfit songs that centers on her life with chronic illness endometriosis. She continues to receive commissions from fans worldwide and looks forward to future editions of her interactive “song-telling” project Chanson-O-Gramme: Beloved Object. Muir is currently exploring the world of electric bass and therein while working on a children's narrative song EP to be released in 2020.
