Amythyst Kiah


FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 2024 @ 8pm


Meet Amythyst Kiah, “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets,” (Rolling Stone), at the heart of the Black folk revival. With an unforgettable voice that’s both unfettered and exquisitely controlled, Amythyst Kiah gracefully interlaces potent vulnerability and personal revelation, offering a raw yet nuanced examination of grief, alienation, and the hard-won triumph of total self-acceptance.

Kiah’s Rounder Records debut, Wary + Strange, marks the glorious combination of two vastly different worlds: the iconoclastic alt-rock that first sparked her musical passion and the roots/old-time music scene where she’s found breakout success in recent years. Here, the Tennessee-bred singer/songwriter expands on the uncompromising artistry she most recently revealed as a member of Our Native Daughters — the all-women-of-color supergroup. Kiah penned the group’s standout identity anthem “Black Myself” which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best American Roots Song and won Song of the Year at the 2019 Folk Alliance International Awards.

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

“She really is important in reminding people that there is a great tradition of African-American, old-time musicians. I love that she sings in this really rich low vocal range, just straight from the chest, resonant.” NPR
