A professed Southern Gothic songster based in Johnson City, TN, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is only matched by her raw and powerful vocals—a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past. A graduate of East Tennessee State University, she studied old time music and music performance, and it proved a pivotal moment in her life as she transformed from a long-time closet musician into a well-rounded, captivating performer.
“Kiah is an important and innovative presence in contemporary traditional music. Describing herself as a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter, Amythyst has a repertoire that honours tradition while crossing genres to illuminate many common threads.” Sam Gleaves, The Bluegrass Situation
