Amythyst Kiah is a Southern Roots/Alt-Country blues musician originally from Chattanooga, TN. She has found a way to fuse traditional roots music with a contemporary style that makes for powerful original songs, and transforms traditional songs into powerful, soulful renditions. She draws heavily on Old Time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Rev. Gary Davis, Skillet Lickers, Jimmie Rogders), and is inspired by vocal stylings of R&B and Country music from the ’50s-’70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn). She also draws from contemporary popular artists that have similar powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Janelle Monae, Joss Stone). Needless to say, Amythyst has got a lot of tools in her vocal tool box, and is also well on her way to joining the powerhouse vocalist pantheon. – See more at:
