Kristy Thirsk is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Best known for her ethereal vocal work with Delerium, Thirsk has participated with other projects, which includes her solo career.
She was the singer and a co-writer for the band Rose Chronicles, which was signed to Nettwerk in the ’90s. Rose Chronicles released two full length albums: Shiver (1994), which won a Juno Award for Best Alternative Album, and Happily Ever After (1996). The band split up in 1997.
Thirsk's first released solo track was "Bounds of Love," which was on the soundtrack of the movie Kissed in 1997. This song received a Genie Award nomination for Best Movie Theme.
In the years that followed, Thirsk was featured as a guest vocalist and co-writer on albums by Delerium and Balligomingo. She sang the vocals in Front Line Assembly's cover of Madonna's "Justify My Love" and Mystery Machine's cover of Blondie's "Heart of Glass."
She worked on her own material throughout this period and released her first full length solo album, Souvenir, in 2003. Souvenir was produced by Eric Rosse (Tori Amos, Lisa Marie Presley).
Thirsk and fellow Delerium singer Shelley Harland were the two lead vocalists for Delerium's first US tour in 2003.
The Sleepthief album The Dawnseeker, released June 2006, features Thirsk's vocals in the song "Sublunar (Sweet Angel)." Sleepthief's second album Labyrinthine Heart, released in 2009, also contains two tracks that feature Kirsty's vocals, "A Cut From the Fight" and "Reversals".
