In Her Own Words: Krista Detor’s Gypsy Life

“You must do the thing you think you cannot do,” says Bloomington singer-songwriter Krista Detor, quoting Eleanor Roosevelt.

Tackling perilous stage fright at an early age, Detor candidly discusses paying her dues and shares stories from home and from the road, as well as the worldwide issues that inspire her charitable work, in this 34-minute interview that took place on Feb. 27, 2010. Six Ball State University journalism students, led by workshop instructors Leslie Benson and Josh Flynn, both freelance writers for Nuvo Newsweekly in Indianapolis, Ind., speak with the musician in anticipation of her 2010 album release, Chocolate Paper Suites.
