The alt country and blues singer-songwriter performs a diverse array of rhythm'nblues, old-time covers and originals with a contemporary twist.
Wed 14 Aug
From Johnson City Tennessee, Amythyst Kiah describes herself as a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer-songwriter whose influences span decades and diverse styles. Combining rhythm and blues, country and old-time covers alongside startling originals with an angular contemporary twist, she bestrides both musical spheres with complete authenticity and an authority matched only by her commanding stage presence. Channelled through her massively expressive voice, her richly layered repertoire confirms Amythyst's emergence as a hugely distinctive new artist who is currently making waves on both sides of the Atlantic.
She’s set for another big year and has just released a fantastic new track called Black Myself as part of Our Native Daughters, a collaborative album with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla and Alli Russell which explores the historical experience of black women in the US. It’s written and sung by Amythyst and is a hugely powerful anthem-in-waiting.
