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.

Three UK tours since 2016 have earned huge acclaim at Hebcelt, Edinburgh Jazz, SummerTyne, Southern Fried, River Town and Celtic Connections festivals amongst many others. Recent performances in the US, where her star is very much on the rise, include special guest slots with Rhiannon Giddens, Indigo Girls, Old Crow Medicine Show and Valerie June. She played Cambridge Folk Festival for a third successive year in 2018 as one of guest curators Rhiannon Giddens’ picks and stormed the festival as a returning heroine.

She’s set for a big 2019 as part of Our Native Daughters, a collaborative project with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCall and Alli Russell which explores the historical experience of black women in the US released to great acclaim in February. Amythsyt wrote and sung the a lead on the album, Black Myself, a hugely powerful anthem-in-waiting:

Her new solo album, recorded and produced in Louisiana by Dirk Powell, will be released in the autumn.

“A standout performance…her razor-sharp guitar picking alone guarantees her a place among blues masters, but it’s her deep-hued voice that can change on a dime from brushed steel to melted toffee that commands attention.” New York Times

“She has rising talent written all over her. A 29-year-old with a striking shock of hair and a huskily expressive voice which modulates between strength and tenderness, Kiah strides comfortably across jazz, blues and even country styles.” The Scotsman

“Amythyst Kiah is going to be famous…the best way to experience her music is in person. I don't think it's an understatement to say that Amythyst Kiah will remind you what it is to love live music.” No Depression
