Audra Kubat

Detroit musician Audra Kubat has enthralled audiences with her live performances for more than 20 years.

Her critically-acclaimed work has taken her from LA to New Orleans and back, but it’s her deep roots in Detroit’s creative community that keeps her passionate about being an artist in the city. 

On November 29th she’ll release her latest album, “The Sliver and the Salve,” with a performance at the DIA’s Rivera Court.

I wanted the acoustic and sort of authentic sounds to mix with the digital world.” - Audra Kubat, musician

The album expands on Kubat’s profoundly gorgeous songwriting by bringing in collaborators like the globally-influenced style of Sean Blackman and the experimental baroque pop of Shara Nova, who records under the moniker “My Brightest Diamond.” 

I wanted the acoustic and sort of authentic sounds to mix with the digital world,” Kubat says of her decision to work with Nova. 

Kubat visited the 101.9 WDET studios to share her latest work with a live performance and conversation with CultureShift’s Amanda LeClaire.
