A self-professed Southern Gothic, Amythyst Kiah’s commanding stage presence is matched only by her raw and powerful vocals. Based in Johnson City, Tennessee, the alt-country blues singer/songwriter produces a deeply moving, hypnotic sound that stirs echoes of a distant and restless past.

Amythyst’s musical toolbox is augmented by her scholarship of African American roots music. Her eclectic influences span decades, drawing heavily on old time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Olla Belle Reed, Carter Family), inspired by strong R & B and country music vocalists from the 1950s and ’70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn) and influenced by contemporary artists with powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Megan Jean and the KFB, Janelle Monáe).
