Amythyst Kiah

Amythyst Kiah

From Johnson City Tennessee, Amythyst Kiah describes herself as a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer-songwriter. Her influences span decades and diverse styles: combining rhythm and blues and old-time covers alongside startling originals with an angular contemporary twist, she bestrides both spheres with complete authenticity and authority.

Channelled through her massively expressive voice, this richly layered repertoire confirms Amythyst's emergence as a hugely compelling and distinctive new artist.
