ABOUT DELV

Delv is an indie electrofolk project by Philly songwriter and producer Kris Leigh. The music blends delicate fingerstyle guitar, ambient synth undertones and hushed vocal melodies to create a dreamy, dark atmosphere that mirrors human vulnerability.

Originally a folk singer-songwriter, Kris wanted to expand past the limitations of using only guitar and voice by adding the energy of electronic production. The compositions create depth and tension while remaining dedicated to the simplicity and warmth of folk-style music, creating a hushed and commanding presence.  

Her first album, Waning, was independently recorded and produced in her, at the time, Los Angeles home.  The piece tells a story of introspection and the uncertain, evolving path towards self knowing.

"The result is something quietly powerful, and each track becomes its own world, complete with space and warmth and sadness" - Various Small Flames


"Created out of several disembodied vocal drones that sound as if they are pouring in from the peripheries of the audio field and layered atop guitar lines that fold into one another... easy to sink in and surrender to." - TTTWM
