Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and entertainer EG Kight has a sound that transcends musical boundaries. With a blend of blues, country, americana, southern rock, jazz, gospel, and funk, her music appeals to the masses, no matter their taste. Taylor Guitars, who supplies her with the tools of her trade, wrote in their Wood & Steel Magazine that she has a “…uniquely rural, deeply personal sound and style.” A veteran of the road, Kight has traveled the world, bringing her diverse musical menu to clubs, theaters, festivals, house concerts, fundraisers, and corporate events around the globe. And she’s garnered many accolades along the way.
Kight was nominated for a 2015 Blues Music Awards Award, was named one of the 2014 Top 5 Best Blues Artists on AXS.com, and her latest album debuted at #9 on the Living Blues Chart. She has also received various music industry nominations, including six for Female Artist of the Year, three for Song of the Year, and one for Album of the Year. She has appeared on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion, and an original song from her segment was re-broadcast on the Listener’s Choice Program. She also appeared on Mountain Stage, and Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour.
A notable songwriter, many artists have recorded Kight’s songs. Several songs ended up on Grammy-nominated albums, and on two compilations that maintained Billboard chart positions for over a year. Her original songs have aired on four major TV networks. And she placed five songs in an upcoming film.
Long considered one of the few true blues vocalists, Georgia Music Magazine noted that Kight is “…a gentle and elegant woman who manages to channel Southern charm, sophistication and a fierce passion for the blues into one tremendously intoxicating voice.”
