Shotgun Singer is an album by American singer/songwriter Kris Delmhorst, released in 2008.
Delmhorst recorded Shotgun Singer in a rural cabin with minimal recording gear by herself. Once completed, she brought in various players to add to the songs, including her husband Jeffrey Foucault and friend and label-mate Peter Mulvey. Those three had previously released Redbird together five years earlier.
Joe Vigilione of Allmusic wrote "... anyone dipping into a song like "Freediver" or any other random track on this disc is bound to be quite surprised at the extraordinary depth inside."
The Boston Herald stated in their review: "Perennial Boston Music Award nominee Delmhorst makes a stunning transformation by moving from the countrified folk of her previous three releases to a dreamier and denser sound brimming with atmosphere and muted-but-infectious melodies... Shotgun Singer is a work of lo-fi beauty, and evidence of an artist taking flight."Dow, Nate. Boston Herald. April 18, 2008.
