About Kris and Dee

Kris+Dee are Kris Abbott (The Pursuit of Happiness) and Dee McNeil (The Strap-Ons). Browse Line (Oct. 2019) is the 4th album of this married philoso-folk duo from Kingston.

“Quiet revolutionaries”, “devastation in a pretty package” and “the super folk duo of our riot grrrl dreams” are descriptions as diverse as one would expect for two women from the fiddle-rich Ottawa Valley who came of age in the 70’s and 80’s and cut their musical teeth in pop-rock and punk bands.

Their 2011 debut, Still Here Inside, busted out of the gates, registering 1 million plays on Starbucks’ Worldwide Playlist. The follow-up, Bloom, made CBC Music’s Top Pick List for 2013.

A Great Long Game (2015) hit #1 on Ontario and Maritime college and community radio and earned them main stage festival performances across Canada.

Browse Line took four years to release, an uncharacteristically long incubation for a team whose first three albums were only two years apart. Kris and Dee chalk it up to busy individual careers; TPOH toured internationally iconic Love Junk’s 30th Anniversary and Dee was promoted to Director at a Kingston hospital.

Called “one of Canada’s most compelling duos of the last decade” they are known for their honest, powerful and poetic songs, equally personal and universal, and for their Springsteen-esque reign within the Canadian musical landscape: trusted voices for the working class and academics, Millennials and Boomers, gendered and genderless, and everyone in between.

What people are saying:

“Kris+Dee’s new album, Browse Line, is a stunner.”
- Sarah Harmer (singer/songwriter, activist)

“Browse Line explores the personal and political, helping us see where we are now and where we could be going. I love this record.”

- Steven Page (singer/songwriter)

“...songs of impermanence, restlessness and upheaval with unforgettable melodies, lyrics that linger, rich harmonies, modern textures and glorious production. These ten songs are balms that provide clear-eyed comfort without settling for easy answers. Holy cow this is a great record.”
- Michael Barclay (Author of 2018 national bestseller The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip)

“The kind of music you want to turn up loud on a pastoral country road with your arm out the window and a dreaming mind.”

- Lorraine Segato (singer/songwriter)

“... yet another exquisite and spacious collection of Kris+Dee’s durable and atmospheric post-folk dispatches, packed with lyrical poignancy, joyous harmony, and a compelling undertow of sweet melancholy.” 

- Paul Myers (songwriter, author, producer)

“Gorgeous melodies and heart-tugging harmonies…socially charged lyrics that take stabs at repression big and small…smart and satisfying Canadiana pop all the way through”

- Bob Mersereau (Top 100 Canadian Blog)

“In the hardest of times, or the hardness of day, this is an album you’ll reach for - to sit back, close your eyes, inflect, reflect, and believe.”
- Bruce Kauffman (Poet)

“This honest, timeless album will haunt you like a guardian angel.”
- Jason Heroux (Poet Laureate, City of Kingston)
